Grab this 1TB Samsung gaming SSD for its lowest ever price

With a huge 47% off right now, you can get yourself a 1TB Samsung M.2 NVMe SSD for a price of just $79 in this latest Amazon deal.

If you’re looking to expand your storage space for games without paying over the odds, you can grab a 1TB Samsung 990 Evo right now for an extremely low price. With 47% off, this gaming SSD deal enables you to make a big saving on the usual price of this drive.

The Samsung 990 Evo offers a top sequential read speed of 5,000MB/s, with a peak write speed of 4,200MB/s, which isn’t as quick as the latest 4x PCIe 5.0 SSDs, but it’s still plenty fast enough for most people’s needs, particularly at this price. Unlike some of the best SSDs for gaming, this drive doesn’t need a heatsink to keep it in check either.

While this is a great price for this SSD, however, don’t be fooled by Samsung’s marketing claims about the 990 Evo. Samsung says it’s a PCIe 5.0 SSD, but it only uses two lanes, rather than four, which means in reality it isn’t any quicker than a standard 4x PCIe 4.0 drive. That’s still quicker than a PCIe 3.0 SSD, though, and $79 is a great price for a 1TB drive with these speeds.

The 1TB model also comes with a hefty 600TBW (terabytes written) write endurance rating, while the 2TB model doubles that to 1,200TBW. That means you can continually rewrite the entire contents of the drives 600 times before they degrade. What’s more, that 2TB version of the 990 Evo is also on sale right now for just $140, which is a good deal for 2TB of speedy storage.

All you have to do to take advantage of this Fourth of July discount is head on over to Amazon via the links above, or via these links right here for the 1TB and 2TB drives.
