      how are they putting no dram on an alleged 'premium' product?

        Samsung IT: "Hey, design an SSD with no DRAM"
        Samsung R&D: "OK, done"
        Samsung IT: "Thanks"

        • it feels like these are dud 980 pros or something else that they have an exorbitant amount of and just decided to slap an "upgraded" 970 evo/plus m.2 nvme for a quickie profit

            @dfg555: 980 was introduced to compete with WD SN550. The old batch of SN 550 was better than 980 in quite a few areas. However, WD now does cost cutting on SN550. Then, WD introduces SN570.

            Samsung needed a DRAMless SSD product.

      • Seems they have larger SLC and use driver uses motherboard ram … The throughput numbers still look good for the price .

    • wow, so the 980 pro is their premium product with dram and gen 4 pcie, the 980 is worse than the 970 evo plus.

      • I have have 980 pro in one build, and 970 plus in another, was about to buy 980 last week when I realised the 980 comes as a normal and pro version , and 970 plus costs more than 980 non-pro.

    The 980 is Samsung's first retail entry level NVMe SSD (they've sold entry level dramless OEM drives before), see anandtech's review here: https://www.anandtech.com/show/16504/the-samsung-ssd-980-500...

    D-ramless absoulty doesnt mean it is a bad product automatically.

    • Seems SLC is bigger and like most drivers it uses a bit of motherboard RAM …..so keeps write speed up via SLC and read is easy.
