bottom line: One of Samsung’s most popular SSDs is selling for the lowest price we’ve ever seen. The inventory probably won’t last long at this price, so if you’re interested, I’d go and pick it up now.
The 2TB SSD version of the Samsung 980 Pro is currently discounted to $249.99 on Amazon, the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this capacity. Back during the Amazon Prime Day sale, the same 2TB drive was $329.99.
The Samsung 980 Pro SSD took on the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus in our PCIe 4.0 consumer SSD battle, earning itself a spot next to the Sabrent drive as the top choice in our Best Of series.
2 TB option rating for sequential read speeds up to 7000MB/s and write speeds up to 5100MB/s. While the drive is backwards compatible with PCIe 3.0, you can pair it with a PCIe 4.0 compatible motherboard to maximize performance.
These high-speed drives tend to get hot, especially under prolonged load or in an environment with poor airflow. To ensure that thermal throttling does not become an issue, you can also purchase an aftermarket heatsink. Passive and active cooling options are available at low cost and can save you headaches down the road.
