Samsung has officially unveiled the latest addition to its high-performance SSD lineup, the 990 EVO. The 990 EVO promises significant improvements in performance, interface flexibility, and power efficiency over its predecessor, the 970 EVO Plus.

Improved Performance

The 990 EVO boasts sequential read speeds of up to 7,450 MB/s and write speeds of up to 6,900 MB/s, which are significantly faster than the 970 EVO Plus's 3,500 MB/s read speeds and 2,700 MB/s write speeds. This means that the 990 EVO can transfer files much faster, saving you time and improving your overall productivity.

Interface Flexibility

The 990 EVO is compatible with both PCIe 4.0 and PCIe 5.0 interfaces. This means that it can be used with a wider range of devices, including the latest high-performance computers. PCIe 5.0 is the latest and fastest interface available, and it offers double the bandwidth of PCIe 4.0. This means that the 990 EVO can take full advantage of the latest hardware.

Power Efficiency

The 990 EVO is also more power-efficient than the 970 EVO Plus. It has a lower idle power consumption of 0.65W and a lower active power consumption of 5.6W. This means that it will use less power and generate less heat, which is important for laptops and other mobile devices.

Smart Thermal Control

The 990 EVO features Samsung's Intelligent Thermal Management technology, which helps to keep the drive cool under even the most demanding workloads. This is important for preventing thermal throttling, which can slow down the drive.

Samsung Magician Software

The 990 EVO comes with Samsung Magician software, which allows you to monitor the health of the drive, optimize its performance, and secure your data.

Pricing and Availability

The 990 EVO is available in capacities of 250GB, 500GB, 1TB, and 2 TB. The 250GB model starts at $124.99, the 500GB model starts at $179.99, the 1TB model starts at $249.99, and the 2TB model starts at $399.99.


The Samsung 990 EVO is a significant upgrade over the 970 EVO Plus. It offers faster performance, more interface flexibility, better power efficiency, and smarter thermal control. It is a great choice for gamers, creative professionals, and anyone who needs a high-performance SSD.
