Instantly jump right back to intensive work with huge files, graphic-heavy games, or even normal PC usage
Embedded with Samsung’s cutting-edge thermal control algorithm, the 980 SSD 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.
High-performance SSDs usually require high-performance thermal control. To ensure stable performance, the 980 uses nickel coating to help manage the controller’s heat level and a heat spreader label to deliver effective thermal control of the NAND chip.
