There's no EVO or Pro branding, this is the plain old 980 and it's what you'd call Samsung's new budget NVMe SSD, though it's also packing something new.
We're approaching a point now where new PCIe 3.0 SSDs will be looked upon in a similar way to a new SATA SSD. As good as they may be, we've already hit the limits the technology can offer and started moving forward. As Intel finally starts supporting PCIe 4.0, you'd hope that we'll see more and more of the new generation going forward.
