A few etailers show an entry for a new NVME SSD from Samsung, not PRO or EBVO, no the Samsung 980 SSD Spotted. When you read up on it, you'll learn it is a DRAM-less design SSD. That means it makes use of HMB and uses a chunk of your system memory.

Performance listed is an up to 3,500 MB/s sequential read speed as well as an up to 3,000 MB/s sequential write speed. As for random performance, advanced versions of the Samsung 980 are claimed to be capable of up to 500,000 random reads (4KB, QD32) as well as up to 480,000 IOPS random writes (4KB, QD1).
Early listing priced indicate the 250GB drive costs €70, the 500GB version is priced at €90, and the 1TB model carries a €150 price tag. That's steep, as Samsung's 970 Evo Plus 250GB can be obtained for €54, the 500GB flavor is available for €74, whereas the 1TB version can be bought for €144.
