The Samsung 990 Pro SSD series adds another option to the range with a 4 TB version.
This new SSD, complete with heatsink, will be available next month for $345.
The new 4TB version joins the 1TB and 2TB options.
Many people prefer Samsung SSDs and Pro Series drives are very popular with PC manufacturers. The latest 990 Pro SSD that we tested and praised earlier this year is about to take it to the next level with a 4TB storage option. It will be available next month for $345 .
For comparison, the 2TB variant is $149.99 on Amazon in the US. The cost of 2TB is relatively cheap, and two of those more than 4TB make more sense if your computer has spare slots. An SSD is easier to manage, and a larger drive can offer slightly better performance.
Given the amount of storage people need quickly, fast and sufficient storage is crucial. Without forgetting the comfort of your system and its performance in many tasks. From faster downloads to faster copying of large files to even faster game load times, fast storage is a major factor worth spending big bucks on.
It's worth noting that the Samsung 990 Pro SSD is still a PCIe Gen 4 drive nearing the end of its lifespan. We are currently in the process of moving to PCIe Gen 5. Gen 5 drives are currently more expensive and Samsung does not yet have this specification. If you are willing to spend that much money on PCIe 5, remember that your motherboard must support this specification. We've featured some of the latest AMD and Intel motherboards with PCIe 5 support. Most of them now have multiple M.2 SSD slots.
PCIe Gen 4 drives currently offer the best value for money and are still fast enough for most tasks and the best PC games. Samsung gave us the information on this and they are considered to be one of the best on the market with consistently high reviews across the range. Our collection of the best SSDs includes many of them from Samsung. This fantastic deal on the previous generation 1TB Samsung 980 Pro is also a great option for those looking for an SSD.
The Samsung 990 Pro 4TB SSD will be available at various retailers and on Samsung.com next month.
