Samsung's 2TB SSD

Whether it is wanting more storage for your laptop, desktop, or even a PS5 or demanding extremely high data speeds, the Samsung 980 PRO should be your pick, now more than ever, thanks to the latest deal on Amazon. The 2TB M.2 NVMe is down to just $179.99 on the online retailer, making it one of the best deals out there for a PCIe Gen4 SSD.

Keep in mind that not too long ago, Samsung’s 2TB 970 EVO Plus, which was a PCIe Gen3 SSD in the same form factor, was available at the same price, so you are getting multiple improvements in the same price. Installing an M.2 NVMe SSD is as simple as computer, or PS5 upgrades go, but you are likely more interested in the benefits the 980 PRO brings to the table, so let us get started.

Speed differences between the Samsung 980 PRO M.2 NVMe SSD and previous-generation drives

Aside from the increased 2TB of storage, this M.2 NVMe SSD is twice as fast as the 970 EVO Plus, meaning that you can get up to 7000MB/s sequential read and up to 5100MB/s write speeds on this drive. For your PS5, we will recommend purchasing an aftermarket heatsink, just so the drive does not throttle when loading games or areas where an immense amount of texture data needs to be read from the 980 PRO.

Gaming laptops and desktops already have a heatsink, so there will be no worries there. Samsung’s Data Migration Software is also another more reason why we strongly recommend this 2TB SSD. The program is free and it will transfer all data from your existing drive to the 980 PRO in a few minutes, giving your laptop or computer that well-deserved speed upgrade. Sadly, we do not know for how long the deal will last, so make sure you pounce on this opportunity before the price increases or the 980 PRO goes out of stock.
