Samsung launches the 4TB version of the ultra-fast 990 PRO SSD – Samsung Saudi Arabia Newsroom

Superior performance without worrying about free storage space, especially for gamers and developers

Samsung today launched a 4TB version of the ultra-fast 990 PRO, a powerful PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD that was previously available in 1TB and 2TB capacities. The new SSD adds more storage space to the speed and power efficiency of its predecessors, and is optimized for graphically demanding games and other intensive tasks like 3D rendering, 4K video editing, and data analysis. An improved Total Bytes Written (TBW) rating of up to 2400TB provides greater reliability and longer life, ideal for heavy tasks and large capacity needs.

“Not only does the new 4TB version of the 990 PRO provide the optimal balance between speed, power efficiency and reliability, but with 4TB of storage space, it is ideal for those who work with large files or have multiple games installed at the same time,” says Roderick. Nyhorster, Marketing Director for Memory Business at Samsung Benelux. “Continuing innovations in gaming, 4K and 8K technology and AI-driven applications have created consumer demand for high-performance storage, and the 990 PRO series meets this need.”

Give space for extreme performance
Powered by Samsung’s 8th generation V-NAND (V8) and a new ultra-fast controller, the 990 PRO delivers the highest random read speed currently available over the PCIe 4.0 interface.[1]with sequential read and write speeds of up to 7450 and 6900 megabytes per second (MB/s), respectively, and random read and write speeds of up to 1600K and 1550K IOPS, respectively.[2]. This makes the 990 PRO ideal for intense gaming and demanding tasks like video editing, music production, or data analysis. The 4TB version provides room for this superior performance, so you don’t have to worry about the disk getting full.

The 4TB 990 PRO significantly reduces stuttering during gaming and speeds up the loading process of high-quality videos. For high-end games that support the latest game loading technologies, the 990 PRO Series can reduce lag for smooth gameplay with consistently high frame rates.

Energy efficient with reliable thermal control

The 990 PRO Series controller is designed to be energy efficient, making it more energy efficient. This provides up to a 50% increase in performance compared to the 980 PRO series. Additionally, the 990 PRO uses nickel plating on the controller and a heat dissipation sticker on the drive for reliable thermal management. Samsung’s Dynamic Thermal Guard technology keeps the drive at the ideal temperature.

The 990 PRO version with heatsink not only provides an extra layer of thermal control, but also features stylish RGB lighting. The SSD is compatible with the latest gaming consoles and can dramatically speed up the process of installing and loading games, while preventing performance issues due to overheating.

4TB single-sided SSD for ultra-slim laptops

Thanks to Samsung’s V8 1Tb high-density NAND and memory stacking technology, the 4TB 990 PRO can be designed in a single-sided M.2 form factor, making it thinner than double-sided M.2 SSDs. This eliminates the issues that double-sided M.2 SSDs can cause when installed in ultra-thin laptops, such as space constraints and the risk of damaging other components.

Samsung magic program

Samsung Magician ensures optimal SSD performance by updating firmware, drivers, and other settings. In addition, the program provides the option to adjust power consumption and performance according to user preferences. In addition, the software supports the RGB function of the 990 PRO with heatsink, allowing gamers to customize color and LED effects. The latest version, Magician 8.0, which will be released in September 2023, is an all-in-one software solution for SSDs, SSD flash drives, memory cards and USB flash drives.
