Despite being one of the most reputable names in the storage business, Samsung doesn’t have a PCIe 4.0 SSD on the market yet, but it’s about to make that mark soon. According to one notable leaker, the company will be releasing its 980 Pro NVMe M.2 SSD by August.

“Samsung 980 Pro SSD will be released within two months, you will see the super performance of real PCIe 4.0 SSD,” tweeted Ice universe.

According to an image taken from CES 2020 (via Anandtech), the 980 PRO offers sequential read/write speeds of up to 6,500/5,000 MB/s. The drive will also be available in 250 GB, 500 GB, and 1 TB capacities.

Others are pointing out that this drive nulls the hype of the PlayStation 5’s magical SSD, which features 5.5 GB and 8 to 9 GB/s of raw and compressed IO throughput, respectively.
