Black Friday SSD deals – 1TB Samsung drive for just $88

There are faster, cheaper, higher capacity drives all on offer in this year's Black Friday sales

PS5 SSD will outperform PC

There is one, often underrated component that can make a massive difference to the performance of your gaming PC, an SSD. It won’t suddenly give your gaming rig another 20fps in the latest games, but if you’re switching from a laggardly spinning platter hard drive the difference in general system performance will be massive. And you’ll also start to realise just why your online buddies have been castigating you for always being the last one to load into the game…

And thanks to the fact that storage technology has largely ground to a halt over the last year or so, and memory pricing has dropped hugely, solid state drives are cheaper than they’ve ever been. To the point where you can get a large capacity SSD for the sort of money you’d have dropped on a standard hard drive not so long ago.

There are starting to be new PCIe 4.0 SSDs doing the rounds, but they’re still few and far between, and also only compatible with the latest X570 and 3rd Gen Threadripper platforms. But as the new generation rolls around the prices of still superfast PCIe 3.0 NVMe drives have become incredibly tempting. We’ve picked out the best Black Friday SSD deals so you can make the switch today.

If you’re looking for other bargains don’t forget to check out our mega Black Friday PC deals page for reams and reams of deals across CPUs, gaming laptops, gaming monitors, graphics cards, and gaming headsets.
