Samsung 980 Pro 1 TB SSD, perfect for PS5, on sale for -48%

Those who own a PS5 and are looking for a high-performance NVMe SSD with a large storage capacity can turn to the 1 TB Samsung 980 Pro, whose price ranges from 220 euros to 114 euros on Amazon.

Not all SSDs are suitable for PS5. Among those that have a place in the bowels of this next gen console, there is the Samsung 980 Pro, which offers high speed and which even includes a thermal controller to limit overheating. Currently, its 1TB version sees its price cut by half, making it even more recommended.

The Samsung 980 Pro SSD in a nutshell

  • Speeds up to 7000 MB/s
  • A large amount of storage
  • A thermal controller on the SSD

Initially presented at 220 euros, the Samsung 980 Pro 1 TB SSD is now offered at 114 euros on Amazon.

For use with a PS5, we recommend pairing it with a heatsink like this one. Moreover, you can update its firmware from PC using Samsung Magician before installing it on your PS5 to ensure better performance.

A perfect SSD for PS5

The Samsung 980 Pro SSD is particularly suitable for Sony’s next-gen console, the PS5, because it meets the main criteria to be associated with it: first, it is indeed a PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD, and its transfer speed is more more than enough: the Japanese firm imposes a speed of at least 5,500 MB/s for proper operation, while Samsung’s SSD offers at least 7,000 MB/s reading, and 5,100 MB/s writing .

Installing this SSD, which is in the form of a RAM strip, on the PS5 is a bit more complicated than installing an expansion card on the Xbox, but this article will explain how to do it step by step. When the manipulation is done, you will have 1 TB of storage (while the console natively offers a storage space of 667 GB), which will allow you to save more games on your console, or even applications or software if you want to install the SSD on a PC.

A responsive SSD

Combined with your PS5 or your PC, the Samsung 980 Pro SSD will be able to reduce the loading times of your games or applications, but also to speed up the launch of your machine. Another good point: this SSD contains a thermal controller to maintain performance and a stable temperature in your device. The risk of overheating will be very limited, which is rather practical when you know that SSDs deliver high performance.
