Upgraded from a 970 Evo Plus and the performance difference is so drastic. Love this thing.

The 980 Pro with integrated heatsink is a super speedy PCIe gen 4 NVMe SSD. The heatsink provides convenient cooling, making sure your SSD can operate most efficiently. Great choice for your main SSD.


Average

Probably the best speed on the market for an NVME ssd right now, but is missing "pro" features that consumers desire on Samsung's "pro" series. It is also priced exorbitantly. Probably avoid and just get a slightly slower but half the price ssd.

They've had some issues with firmware and the drive degrading fast with the old firmware.
