Amazon is now offering the Samsung 980 PRO 1TB PCIe Gen 4 Internal Solid-State Drive for $119.99 shipped. Originally launching at $250, it has regularly sold for between $140 and $190 over the last year at Amazon. While we did see a brief offer at $112 during the holidays in 2022, today’s deal matches the second-best price we have tracked on Amazon and is the lowest we can find. As you’ll know for our tutorial review, this model is equipped with a heatsink for your PC battlestation or PlayStation 5 upgrade. The PCIe 4.0 interface clocks in at up to 7,000MB/s alongside the M.2 form-factor. The built-in heatsink is designed to disperse heat, maintain speed, and “prevent downtime caused by overheating on PlayStation 5 and PC.” Get a closer look right here and head below for more.
While the 980 PRO is certainly a popular solution, a more affordable option comes by way of the ongoing price drop we are tracking on WD_BLACK’s 2022 model 7,300MB/s 1TB SN850X heatsink internal SSD. This delivers potentially even faster speeds at up to 7,300MB/s along with compatibility for your PC battlestation rig or inside a PlayStation 5 with its M.2 2280 form-factor and a Gen4 PCIe interface. All of the details you need on this deal are right here.
On the portable side of things, we just went hands-on with SanDisk’s new 2700MB/s Thunderbolt SSD, but if you’re looking for a gaming solution check out Lexar’s 512GB sandblasted 2,000MB/s model. This one delivers notable bang for your buck if you can make do with the 512GB storage space alongside built-in RGB lighting and we are currently tracking the best price ever on Amazon right now as part of our previous deal coverage.
