Save $100 on the speedy 2TB Samsung 980 Pro

There are a lot of contenders vying for the title of the fastest NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD, and Samsung is definitely up there with the 980 Pro. The Samsung 980 Pro was one of the first next-gen drives to be released, offering much faster transfer rates to the initial batch of PCIe 4.0 drives. And while it was pricey at launch, Samsung has been nibbling away at its sticker price for a while now. Indeed, it is now offering a massive $100 saving for the drive on its own website. 

Part of the reason for this price tweakery is because there are now faster drives available, so this is Samsung staying competitive. Importantly, the speed difference between the top drives can be very slight though, and the differences can be slight across various benchmarks and in the real-world tests. The Samsung 980 Pro is nipping at the heels of our top pick, the WD_Black SN850 in plenty of tests, and it can beat the likes of the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus in some tests too.
