Samsung is today the industry’s leading manufacturer of NAND Flash volume and technology. A company that manufactures a huge amount of products where as if that were not enough, it designs and innovates in its own lithography processes. Because of this, it usually has the area of sectors where it sets its feet and in the SSD area it almost always gets its way.
Samsung 980 M.2 1TB, can’t find it cheaper
The reality is that after the offer that Amazon has just made, it is impossible not to go up to the wallet, we understand, it’s juicy to hear Samsung and offer or discount. In this case, it is not a trivial offer and the discount because the market is where no one drops is to appreciate.
But let’s talk about the subject in question, since this is a high-end SSD that will boost your PC’s performance in any area you start from a hard drive or even a SATA SSD. This is undoubtedly an impetus that is given in large part by his controller, which Samsung has curiously called Pablo and no, it is not a mistake, but it is at least striking.
We start from the fact that it is perhaps the most advanced controller of the moment within the M.2 NVMe SSD under PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 with support for version 1.4 of the interface where it is connected. It is accompanied and supplemented by a high level NAND Flash which achieves very high performance.
Samsung V-NAND 3-bit MLC with HMB, is it perhaps the best SSD on the market in this interface?
These NAND Flashes are Samsung’s commented 3-bit V-NAND MLC, so we have higher durability than TLC and no speed loss thanks to HMB (Host Memory Buffer). This results in a sequential read speed of 3500MB / s and a sequential write of 3000MB / s.
As for IOPS, Samsung guarantees 500,000 IOPS in random read in 4Ko QD32 and up to 480,000 IOPS in random write under the same parameters. In terms of MTBF durability, the brand claims to hit 1.5 million hours, almost nothing.
Focusing and already known this little one, Amazon’s offer leaves it at an appetizing 119.95 dollars after having lowered its price by no less than 15% compared to 140.90 dollars. No doubt a discount that we will not see for a long time given the state of the market and its rising prices.
