Samsung has launched the 1TB and 2TB next-generation 990 Pro SSDs in Korea with the latest PCIe Gen 5.0 interface.
Unlike other manufacturers that use controllers such as Phison, Kioxia and Silicon Motion PCIe Gen 5.0, Samsung will develop its own proprietary solution to power its next generation SSDs.
Model numbers MZ-V9P1T0 and MZ-V9P2T0 are listed in the RRA (Korean National Radio Research Agency) database. It is worth noting that existing Samsung 980 Pro PCIe Gen 4.0 SSDs are marked as MZ-V8P1T00. We can conclude that these are Samsung 990 Pro models.
The company plans to introduce the new 990 Pro 1TB and 2TB PCIe Gen 5.0 drives by the end of the year or at CES 2022.
