Anyone with a PS5 is considered a lucky chap seeing that even though considerable time has passed since Sony launched the console, you still can’t buy one without sacrificing your kidney. Such is the state of the scalper market that’s cornered everything from gaming consoles to computer graphics cards.
If you are one of those lucky chaps, perhaps you may be interested in buying a PS5 SSD. It’s quite simple to expand the storage of your console using a NVMe SSD. Samsung makes one of the best there is and it’s now selling the PS5 SSD at its lowest price yet.
Samsung PS5 SSD with heat sink gets a decent discount
The Samsung 980 Pro is the company’s first PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD and it was launched last year. The 980 Pro can be used to expand the storage on a PlayStation 5 console. Samsung had confirmed earlier this year that it would launch a new version of the 980 Pro that’s made specifically for use with the PS5.
This SSD has the same storage and speed as the regular 980 Pro. The only difference is that it has a redesigned heat sink to allow for a perfect fit inside the PS5’s expansion slot. The heat sink keeps temperatures low even as the SSD reaches sequential speeds of up to 7,000MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 5,100MB/s.
When it was launched in October this year, the 2TB Samsung PS5 SSD with heat sink was priced at $449.99. For a limited time, Samsung is offering a $50 discount on the 2TB 980 Pro with heat sink. You can buy it from Samsung’s website for $399.99. This is a limited time offer that ends on 2/1/2022, so you might want to pick one up before the price climbs again.
