Samsung 990 Pro Firmware Update Addresses Failing SSD Health

Posted on

It looks as though Samsung’s SSD nightmare involving its 980 Pro and 990 Pro SSDs may soon be coming to an end — at least of sorts. Both SSD families have endured reports of rapidly declining health, but the 980 Pro’s woes were addressed with the 5B2QGXA7 firmware.

DavidB added that a new 990 Pro firmware update would arrive later this month to address the SSD health deterioration.
