More storage is always good to have if you have the extra slot on your PC to install it, which is what makes this deal on a Samsung 980 NVMe SSD a good one. Right now on Amazon Samsung is discounting the 1TB model of its Samsung 980 SSD by 13%, bringing the price down to $50.30.
The regular price is about $58 so we’re not talking about a mega huge discount here. But an extra $7-$8 is nothing to scoff at. Since this is a Samsung 980 that means it’s a Gen3 SSD and won’t work for the PS5. But you can still use it for your PC for extra storage for media or even games. Whether it’s a desktop or laptop won’t matter too much since it’ll be compatible with both. But you may need to make sure you can get at the location of the current drive if you have a laptop and want to replace it with this SSD.
The Samsung 980 1TB SSD comes with read speeds of up to 3,500MB/s and write speeds up to 3,000MB/s. It also features a full power mode toggle that aims to provide consistently high performance during use. Making this perfect for when you’re playing games off of it. Now this SSD doesn’t come with a heatsink so if you need or want one, you are going to need to pick one up alongside this drive. But you may not need one at all if your PC case has plenty of airflow and temps are generally reasonable most of the time. Even if you do get one, they’re fairly inexpensive.
