Reach max performance of PCIe® 4.0.Experience longer-lasting, opponent-blasting speed.The in-house controller’s smart heat control delivers supreme power efficiency while maintaining ferocious speed and performance, so you can stay at the top of your game.
PCIe 4.0 speed maximised
Huge speed boost.40% and 55% faster random read/write speeds than 980 PRO – up to 1400K/1550K IOPS, while sequential read/write speeds up to 7450/6900 MB/s reach near max performance of PCIe® 4.0. Fly high in gaming, video and 3D editing, data analysis, and more.
Breakthrough power efficiency
More power-efficient performance.Higher performance usually consumes more power. But, 990 PRO uses less power with over 50% improved performance per Watt over 980 PRO. This low-power design makes max PCIe® 4.0 performance possible with optimal power efficiency.
Smart thermal solution
Speed beyond the heat.The nickel-coated controller and cutting-edge thermal control algorithm manage heat for unwavering performance. The heat spreader label controls NAND chip heat, while Dynamic Thermal Guard keeps temperatures optimal.
