Samsung releases 4TB SSD 990 PRO for gamers and content creators

A new 4-terabyte version of SSD 990 PRO series based on eighth-generation V-NAND (V8) technology and improved proprietary controller released by Samsung.


The 990 PRO series is suggested as ideal SSD for today's PCs, laptops, gaming consoles, and computing systems due to it's ability to provide lightning-fast speeds and maximum power efficiency while supporting huge data quantities, including 3D/4K graphics work, data analytics, and high-quality games. The 990 PRO series provides higher SSD reliability and longevity with improved total bytes written (TBW) ratings of up to 2,400TB, making it the perfect choice for users with heavy workloads and high storage capacity requirements.

“Today’s gamers and creative professionals require high-capacity, high-performance SSDs and Samsung’s new 4TB SSD 990 PRO is the perfect storage solution to meet their needs,” said Hangu Sohn, Corporate Vice President of the Memory Brand Product Biz Team at Samsung Electronics. “As the demand for high-resolution content and ultra-fast data-processing speeds continues to grow, high-performance NVMe2 storage has become a core requirement.”

The 4TB 990 PRO offers near-max performance in a PCIe 4.0 interface with sequential read speeds of up to 7,450 megabytes-per-second (MB/s) and write speeds of up to 6,900MB/s. Along with 4TB capacity, these solid drives deliver increased random read and write speeds of up to 1,600K and 1,550K IOPS3, making it a good choice for tech enthusiasts, creative professionals, and gamers who want the best performance and storage space.

Using 4TB 990 PRO, mid-game stalls are greatly decreased, and high-quality videos load more quickly, improving the enjoyment and immersion of gamers. The 990 PRO series can assist in reducing lag for high-end games that feature the most recent in game-loading technologies, enabling players to enjoy real-time gameplay experiences with consistently high frames per second (FPS).

The 990 PRO series compared to previous 980 PRO series perform 50% better in terms power efficiency. Additionally, it has a nickel coating on the controller and a heat spreader label on the back of the SSD, which help to maintain an ideal temperature and reduce performance changes over time. Users of the 990 PRO with Heatsink get the full benefit of prolonged high-performance computing and gaming capabilities thanks to the heatsink's efficient, thin design. The drive is also compatible with the most recent gaming consoles, which speeds up game installation and loading times and guards against performance reductions brought on by overheating.

The 4TB 990 PRO was created with a single-sided M.2 form factor, making it thinner than previous double-sided M.2 SSDs. This was made possible with Samsung's V8 1Tb high-density NAND and memory stacking technology. This clears users' worries about installing double-sided M.2 SSDs into ultra-thin notebooks and running the danger of damaging other components or not being able to install the SSD. The simplified design offers a huge storage space and long-lasting performance with a single-sided M.2 form factor.

Samsung Magician software provides optimal performance in SSDs by keeping firmware, drivers and other settings up to date. Gamers have the ability to personalize color and LED effects due to Magician 8.0 software that supports RGB functionality for the 990 PRO with Heatsink. The next Magician 8.0 version, scheduled for release in September 2023, will be an integrated software solution for SSDs, portable SSDs, memory cards, and USB flash drives.

The 4TB capacity models of the 990 PRO and 990 PRO with Heatsink will be available in early October 2023. The 990 PRO series’ 1TB and 2TB models are currently available for purchase.
