Samsung's flagship, high-performance SSD, the Samsung 980 Pro, is currently marked down to $399 at Amazon. This drive is available in multiple capacities, and today's offer is for the 2TB model.

When we reviewed this drive back in September of 2020, we noted its reasonable price given the high-end performance and high-end specifications, including of course PCIe 4.0 support. The only major drawback was the difficulty users face when trying to squeeze the maximum performance from it as many modern desktops aren't equipped to handle the SSD's high throughput.

Samsung 980 PRO 2TB PCIe NVMe: was $429, now $399 at Amazon

The Samsung 980 Pro is a PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSD, with capacities ranging from 250GB to 2TB. Under optimal conditions, this drive can reach read/write speeds as fast as 7000/5100 MB/ when paired with a PCIe 4.0 host. Otherwise in a PCIe 3.0 host it will reach around 3500/3470 MB/s respectively.

Underpinning the drive is Samsung's latest Elpis controller, as well as the company's in-house TLC NAND. Users can expect a limited, 5-year warranty from Samsung for the 980 Pro.

    Heck, the 1080 TI is 4 years old, and its absolutely not that cheap now. Neither are the Titans or Quadros, which are closer to what the 3090 is. Reply

    Is there a cheaper 2TB PCIE 4.0 SSD that performs anything like this? Reply

    I was hoping for a special also. I am looking for 4TB or 8TB TLC drives.... guess it will be in 10 years Reply

    Sabarent rocket 4 plus is TLC and has a 4TB version. 8TB TLC is highly unlikely.

    It's crazy that Sabrant has been able to beat Samsung at their own game with the Rocket 4 Plus. That's the only reason Samsung is dropping the price, especially considering the inflated M1 supply. Reply

    Not a bad discount. Still, $400 is a lot, even for a 2TB PCIe 4 drive. I was considering getting the Rocket 4 Plus 2TB drive, but I already have two Rocket 4 1TB drives in my rig, as well as 4 SATA drives, so I have enough room where I am just going to wait for now. Reply
