Samsung’s 990 Pro SSDs get bumped to 4TB with latest release

Samsung is finally giving its size to the 990 Pro SSDs, which should make their debut in October.


  • Samsung dominates the SSD market with its 990 SSDs, which are considered to be the best on the market right now.
  • Samsung has announced a new 4TB SSD model, offering better bytes written (TBW) and faster read and write speeds.
  • The SSDs will be compatible with laptops, PCs, and PlayStation 5, and can be monitored and controlled using Samsung’s Magician software. Pricing for the 4TB models has yet to be announced.

For a while now, Samsung has been dominating the SSD market with its impressive products. This year is no exception with its 990 series taking the top spot, being the best SSDs on the market you can buy right now. With that said, the fans of the products have been limited in size, with the top end coming out at just 2TB. It seems that will no longer be the case as Samsung has announced new 4TB models that will be available in a standard version, and that will come with a heat sink.

In terms of compatibility, nothing changes, the new Gen 4 M.2 SSDs are available for laptops, PCs, and even PlayStation 5. However, with the latest model, Samsung does well with all bytes written (TBW). ) level that now rises to 2,400TB. Of course, you’ll still have read and write speeds that come in at 7,450 MB/s and 6,900 MB/s respectively.

SSDs will still provide excellent clocks, and you can monitor the status of the storage modules using Samsung’s Magician software. Those who choose a model with temperature control will also be able to use the program to check the color of the LED and its effect. Samsung is releasing a new firmware sometime this month, and you can expect 4TB versions of the 990 Pro SSDs to be available in early October.

For the most part, we’ve seen a lot of good in the current series of Samsung 990 Pro SSDs. But I wouldn’t expect to see much of a price drop for the latest product, especially since it’s so much bigger. With that said, Samsung hasn’t announced prices for the 4TB SSDs, so we’ll just have to be patient and wait to see what prices they arrive next month.
