The Samsung 990 Pro 4TB will be available as an uncooled SSD (model MZ-V9P4T0BW) as well as a backlit aluminum heatsink version (model MZ-V9P4T0CW). The Samsung 990 Pro is powered by Samsung’s proprietary 8nm Pascal memory controller and 176-layer Samsung TLC 3D NAND flash memory chips.

The new 4TB model offers the same sequential read and write speeds as the 2TB model – 7540 and 6900MB/s, respectively. The read performance of the novelty will be up to 1.6 million IOPS, and random writes 1.55 million IOPS. The SSD also gets 4GB of LPDDR4 cache and a rewrite resource of 2400 TBW (terabytes of overwritten information).

The company added that the use of 8th generation NAND flash memory chips with a high density of 1 Tbit made it possible to place them on the Samsung 990 Pro 4 TB drive not on two sides, but on one side. Thus, the novelty can easily be used in the same laptops without fear of device incompatibility.

The 4TB Samsung 990 Pro will go on sale in October. In the company’s official online store, as well as in online retailers, the novelty is estimated at $ 344.99. A version with a built-in cooler is also available for sale. The suggested price is $354.99.

The manufacturer also announced the preparation of a new version of Samsung Magician 8.0 software for monitoring and managing SSDs. The new version of the application will be available in September. The company did not comment on the innovations in Magician 8.0.
