[DEALS]: Samsung 980 PRO 1TB Gen4 M.2 NVMe SSD compatible with PC and Playstation 5 only €159.95

Those who want to make the leap to 7 GB/s SSDs can opt for the Samsung 980 Pro, which support PCIe 4.0 and will do wonders for any computer and also compatible with Playstation 5.

In recent years disks / SSDs have been one of the most limiting factors in computer performance, which is why this has been one of the areas where it is most important to invest. If you have a computer with PCIe 4.0 support, there's nothing like choosing an SSD capable of making the most of it, like these Samsung 980 Pro , with speeds of up to 7 GB/s read and 5 GB/s write.

What will be noted is that if you use them on a motherboard with only PCIe 3.0, the speeds will drop to 3.5 GB/s in read and 3.4 GB in write (for the 1 TB model). Respectable speeds, but that fall short of its capabilities; so it's best to use them on motherboards that support M.2 PCIe 4.0.

There are those who criticize Samsung for having called these SSDs 980 Pro, when they use TLC flash memories, accompanied by a RAM memory cache and SLC flash, and that therefore would better fit in the EVO family. For example, the 5 GB of writing drops to 1 GB if the cache memory of the 1 TB model is exceeded; however, in normal use this should not be noticed.

The 1TB Samsung 980 Pro is available for 159.95 euros on Amazon Spain. Those who don't need that much speed or prefer to save a little, can find the regular 1TB SSD 980 for 104 euros:
