500GB Samsung 980 NVMe M.2 Internal SSD
Upgrade To Breathtaking NVMe Speed Release the potential of the Samsung SSD 980, whether you need a boost for gaming or a seamless workflow for heavy graphics, the 980 is the smart choice for outstanding SSD performance and it's all backed by an NVMe interface and PCIe 3.0 technology. The compact M.2 form factor provides versatility and flexibility for various high-performance computing solutions in capacities of 250GB, 500GB or 1TB. With a 5-year limited warranty, the 980's optimized endurance comes with proven reliability thanks to Samsung's in-house solutions, from the state-of-the-art controller to V-NAND and the latest firmware.
PCIe 3.0 NVMe Interface
Read up to 3,100 MB/sec Seq. Write up to 2,600 MB/sec Seq.
Packed with Speed
Get right to it The 980 harnesses nearly all the speed advantages of PCIe 3.0 through HMB technology and dramatic NVMe efficiency. The DRAM-less design delivers exceptional value, achieving breakneck sequential read/write speeds up to 3,500/3,000 MB/s*, over 6.2x the speed of SATA SSDs.
* Performance may vary depending on the SSD’s firmware version, system and hardware configuration. Performance measurements are based on IOmeter 1.1.0. The write performances were measured with Intelligent TurboWrite technology activated. Intelligent TurboWrite operates only within a specific data transfer size. For detailed information, please contact your local service center* Test system configuration: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz,DDR4 2133MHz 8GBx2 OS-Windows 10 Pro 64bit AsRock Z-170 Extreme7+* Results are based on a comparison with Samsung SATA SSDs.* HMB (Host Memory Buffer) technology enables the SSD to use the DRAM of the host system for read/write caching and buffering.
Reliable Thermal Control
DURABLE NICKEL COATING High-performance SSDs usually require high-performance thermal control. fOR stable performance, the 980 uses nickel coating to manage the controller's heat level and a heat spreader label to deliver effective thermal control of the NAND chip.
Automatic Protection with a Smart Thermal Solution
DYNAMIC THERMAL GUARD Embedded with Samsung's cutting-edge thermal control algorithm, the 980 manages heat on its own to deliver durable and reliable performance. To minimise performance fluctuations in the long haul, Samsung's Dynamic Thermal Guard technology maintains the 980's temperature at optimal levels.

The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster
Date Issued: 7th May 2010
Solid-state drives (SSDs) are fast becoming the must-have PC components of 2010. Serving as primary storage space for high-end computers, SSD's super-fast transfer rates and near-instant accesses offer genuine advantages over traditional spindle-based magnetic drives.

A motherboard’s main job is to act as a conduit between the various hardware elements that make up a PC. It needs to be able to link the desired CPU(s), system memory, graphics card, hard drive(s), and add-in cards and enable them to work in harmony.
