Samsung has (finally) released a patch for its 980 PRO SSDs

According to System Puget, the problems that users are experiencing are related to the 3B2QGXA7 firmware and are specifically related to 980 PRO 2TB SSDs, although other models may be affected by an issue with more SSD errors.

Some users, especially on the Reddit platform, are mentioning over 6,000 errors on an SSD that’s less than a year old as well as an SSD, which stopped read-only after more than 32,000 errors. The underlying cause of these errors is not clear, but it appears to be firmware-related. The problem is, once an SSD is affected, it cannot be recovered.

If there is no issue of SSD resuscitation, the new firmware released by Samsung should usually prevent new bugs from appearing. This is version 5B2QGXA7. If your 980 PRO has firmware 3B2QGXA7, we can’t recommend that you update it too soon.

This update was performed using Samsung Magician software. Be careful not to scan your solid-state drive before turning it on, as it also throws errors. Finally, note that the 980 PRO with firmware 4B2QGXA7 and 5B2QGXA7 are not affected by the issue.
