Samsung is known for all kinds of electronics. Although most people associate this manufacturer with, say, the best TVs or smartphones, the offer also includes memories of the popular M.2 NVMe SSD from the PRO series. It just so happens that enthusiasts who demand peak performance can actually rub their hands on the next model in this family. We now know for sure that Samsung plans to release new 990 PRO drives.
Samsung 990 PRO SSD drives are coming soon. The media premiere is likely related to the appearance of AMD Ryzen 7000 chips.
As you can see below, the Samsung 990 PRO SSD has been recognized by the PCI-SIG Foundation as a PCIe 5.0 x4 compatible expansion card. The visible 990 PRO SSD has an M.2 interface, but we don’t know its capability, nor do we know how many models will eventually go on sale. Next to it, we also see the PM1743 enterprise class drives that have already been put on the market. Unfortunately, we are only lacking information about the upcoming media specs.

This kind of information means for us that the debut of the 990 PRO series SSDs is near. The media release is likely related to the advent of AMD Ryzen 7000 chips. The 5.0 storage may be used by some Intel Alder Lake platforms at the moment, but it will soon be compatible with all new AMD X670 and AMD B650 motherboards. As far as we know, the more expensive AMD X670E and AMD B650E platforms provide additional PCIe 5.0 support for graphics cards only.
