Samsung’s first DRAMless SSD has dropped again to its lowest price yet —$109 through Amazon. This 1TB NVMe SSD has an MSRP of $139, saving users a total of $30. Overall, the performance of the Samsung 980 is notable at this price.
We reviewed this SSD earlier in the year and recognized it as not much of a successor to the 970 EVO but rather a clear indication that Samsung is trying to offer entry-level hardware alongside its higher-quality PCIe Gen 3 SSDs.
The Samsung 980 comes in an M.2 form factor with capacities of 250GB, 500GB, and today’s deal, the 1TB edition.
A few details on the inner workings of the SSD are available on the Samsung website. According to the official specifications, the Samsung 980 uses an in-house controller and is capable of reaching peak read/write speeds as fast as 3500/3000 MB/s.
The purchase also includes a limited 5-year warranty or otherwise up to 600 TBW. Although the discount is available through Amazon to Prime users, it’s also available through a few other vendors including B&H Photo, Best Buy, and Newegg.
