Upgrade to blazing speeds with the $90 Samsung 970 EVO 500GB NVMe M.2 SSD

The Samsung 970 EVO 500GB NVMe M.2 SSD (opens in new tab) is down to $89.99 on Amazon. The drive has been selling for around $150 since January and has been going in and out of stock. This price is better than last year's Black Friday deals and the lowest we have ever seen for the 500GB version. You're paying less than half the price of the 1TB (opens in new tab) with this deal.

Add this to your computer and see if you can keep up. Not only is this drive crazy fast, but the price is an all-new low.

Windows Central has a breakdown of the Samsung 970 Evo you can read about here. This sort of SSD is like the Bugatti of internal solid state drives. You probably don't need that much speed, but you'll look dang good with one. If you are a photo or video editor, and especially if you work with 4K, you will benefit from these speeds. It has read/write speeds of 3500 and 2500 MB/s thanks to the latest V-NAND tech and Samsung's Phoenix controller.

One way you will really notice the difference in a drive like this is in installing. If you want to load a bunch of games or heavy programs onto this SSD, it will take you half the time compared to any non-NVMe M.2 drive.

  • With PCI-4 I expect these to come down even further. I personally think 500gb is a waste of the slot. I more interested in the 1tb or 2tb in the $150 or $250 price range for the 2tb.
