Durability and Reliability
Durability and reliability are key considerations for any storage device, and the Samsung 980 PRO 500GB M.2 PCI-Express SSD is no exception. The MZ-V8P500 is designed to withstand heavy use and ensure the safety of your data over time.
One of the main factors contributing to the durability of the Samsung 980 PRO 500GB is its NAND flash memory. This type of memory is known for its resistance to wear and tear, making it ideal for long-term use. In addition, the MZ-V8P500 is built with advanced error correction technology, which helps to reduce the risk of data loss and increase the lifespan of the drive.
Another important factor in the reliability of the MZ-V8P500 is its NVMe protocol, which is designed for high-speed data transfer and low latency. This protocol helps to ensure that your data is processed quickly and efficiently, reducing the risk of slowdowns or data loss.
Finally, the MZ-V8P500 is built with a high-quality heat sink, which helps to keep the drive cool even during heavy use. This helps to prevent data corruption and other issues that can arise from overheating.
Data Protection and Encryption Options
The Samsung 980 PRO 500GB M.2 PCI-Express SSD (MZ-V8P500) includes several data protection and encryption options to keep your stored data safe and secure. These options include:
- AES 256-Bit Encryption: This encryption standard provides a high level of security for your stored data. It helps prevent unauthorized access to sensitive information and helps ensure data privacy.
- TCG Opal 2.0 and Microsoft eDrive: This security standard provides advanced encryption capabilities, including password protection and secure erase functions.
- Security Erase: This feature allows you to securely erase all data stored on the MZ-V8P500, helping to ensure that data cannot be recovered if the drive is lost or stolen.
- Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) Technology: This technology provides hardware-based encryption for your data, ensuring that it is secure and protected even if the drive is removed from your system.
By using these data protection and encryption options, you can have peace of mind knowing that your stored data is secure and protected, even in the event of theft, loss or unauthorized access.
Compatibility and System Requirements
The MZ-V8P500 Samsung 980 PRO 500GB M.2 PCI-Express solid state drive is designed to work with modern computer systems that support the M.2 form factor and the PCI-Express interface. The following are the minimum system requirements for the MZ-V8P500:
- Motherboard: The motherboard must have an M.2 slot that supports PCI-Express 4.0.
- Operating System: The MZ-V8P500 is compatible with Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 7 and Linux operating systems.
- PCI-Express Interface: The computer must have a PCI-Express 4.0 or 3.0 interface to support the MZ-V8P500.
- BIOS: The motherboard must have the latest BIOS update to support the M.2 form factor and the PCI-Express 4.0 interface.
- Power Supply: The computer must have a power supply unit with enough power to support the MZ-V8P500.
It is important to note that the Samsung 980 PRO 500GB M.2 SSD is designed for high-performance systems and may not be compatible with all computer systems. Before purchasing, it is recommended to check the compatibility of the computer system with the MZ-V8P500.

The PCI-e solid-state drives are high-speed expansion cards that facilitate the attachment of peripherals to a computer. Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCI-e) is a serial expansion bus standard. There are different sizes of PCI-e slots which are dictated by the total sum of bidirectional lanes at the slot. The PCI-e standard acts as the data transport layer in add-in cards and graphics cards.
PCI-e SSD storage is just another alternative to server-side flash deployment. Using PCI-e SSDs directly introduces flash on the server motherboard which means that a device connects to the host via a non-shared serial link. It will, therefore, eliminate bus sharing between devices. The PCI-e interface helps reduce latency and enhances the data transfer speed.
Features of PCI-e SSD Cards
Generally, PCI-e SSD card has a far better performance compared to SATA SSDs and SAS SSDs as well as the fibre channel solid-state drives. Some of the most notable versions of the PCI-e standard are the PCI-e 3.0 released back in November of 2010 and PCI-e 4.0 released back in 2017. PCI-e 4.0 offers a two-fold increase in bandwidth compared to the PCI-e 3.0 revision. The PCI-e 5.0 was released in 2019 with even greater bandwidth to support faster and efficient performance.
Other standards released by the PCI-SIG are the NVMe (non-volatile memory express). NVMe delivers a highly optimized set of commands for easier accessing of PCI-e SSDs. NVMe is all about exploiting parallelism in PCI-e to enhance performance.
Yet another interface is the M.2 SSDs which is a smaller form factor that is designed for expansion cards that are mounted internally in high-performance workstations and servers. It's a replacement to the mSATA and carries four lanes of bandwidth of the PCI-e 3.0 standard.
We have the following wide range of storage capacities for the PCI-e SSDs to meet all your needs. The capacity options we have here at AllHDD are: 100GB, 240GB, 250GB, 256GB, 280GB, 320GB, 365GB, 375GB, 380GB, 400GB, 480GB, 500GB, 512GB, 750GB, 785GB, 800GB, 960GB, 1TB, 1.2TB, 1.27TB, 1.3TB, 1.5TB, 1.6TB, 1.75TB, 1.79TB, 1.86TB, 1.92TB, 2TB, 2.6TB, 3TB, 3.2TB, 3.5TB, 3.84TB, 4TB, 6.4TB, 7.68TB, 8TB, 11TB, 12.8TB, and 15.36TB.
Overall, the lower latency allows PCI-e and NVMe SSDs to provide fast response times in processing and handling large workloads such as those associated with data warehousing and transaction processing. One of the best applications of PCI-e flash is in data centers where read and write access is in microseconds and is able to meet input/output (I/O) requirements. PCI-e SSDs help in surpassing the bottlenecks that are linked with the use of SAS and SATA SSDs especially in guaranteeing performance in frequent file transfer scenarios. The total sum of PCI-e lanes in an SSD determines the effective data transfer speeds. For example, a 16-lane PCI-e 3.0 device will easily achieve 32 Gbps transfer speeds.
Some of the drawbacks associated with the PCI-e SSDs are the prohibitive costs and high power consumption that leads to shorter battery life.
