With games getting larger, gamers are demanding more storage and when all of that storage can be combined into a single 4TB drive, that keeps us happy. The Samsung 990 Pro is Samsung’s flagship Gen 4 SSD which boasts read speeds of up to 7,450 MB/s and write speeds of 6,900 MB/s. With the increase up to 4TB capacity the random read and write speeds have been boosted up to 1,600K and 1,550K IOPS respectively making it an ideal solution for gamers, creatives and professionals demanding fast and high-capacity storage.

Cooling and Efficiency

Faster drives often produce more heat and require a heatsink to keep them running effectively and efficiently. The 990 Pro comes equipped with an effective slim heatsink allowing for performance to be sustained over long periods, additionally, the slim design of both the single-sided SSD and its heatsink enables it to be used with the latest games consoles. Further keeping the drive cool is the increase in efficiency over its 980 Pro predecessor, which is an up to 50% performance improvement by comparison.
