Deal | PS5-compatible Samsung 980 Pro 1TB SSD with heatsink drops to lowest price ever on Amazon
Gamers and PS5 owners in particular may be yearning for more storage after some blockbuster titles like God of War Ragnarök or the latest entry in the ultra-popular Call of Duty franchise have hit the market in the past few weeks. Thankfully, blazing-fast NVMe SSDs are finally getting more affordable, which is perfectly illustrated by a current deal for the Samsung 980 Pro on Amazon.
Amazon currently offers the adequately-sized 1TB version of the Samsung 980 Pro SSD with a pre-installed heatsink for just US$112 including free shipping, which is the lowest sale price ever according to the price history at Camelcamelcamel. Most tech enthusiasts will already know that this PS5-ready PCIe 4.0 storage solution is one of the most popular SSDs on the market, and partly thanks to its 1GB LPDDR4 cache it can reach extremely high sequential read speeds of up to 7,000 megabyte per second, which easily surpasses Sony's official requirement of 5,500 MB/s.
Aside from PS5 users who don't necessarily want to manually install a separately bought heatsink, the Samsung 980 Pro is also a reasonable investment for desktop PC owners who are in the market for an extremely quick primary SSD. For further details on the overall performance of this solid-state drive, please refer to our comprehensive benchmark breakdown. All in all, this may be one of the best opportunities to pick up a lightning-quick 1TB NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD just in time for the gaming-heavy holidays.
