Expand your PC or PlayStation 5
The fact is that in the last hours we have seen how Some more than interesting offers arrived from one of those manufacturers that we can consider as trustworthy when it comes to acquiring some of its storage components. Indeed, right now you have three Samsung models on offer that will help you install them on your laptop gaming with NVMe SSD storage, especially in those computers in which, in addition to the main unit, you have an extra bay to insert a second component. This is the case, for example, with many Acer Nitro 5s that offer the ability to add a second drive.
Unlike PC or PS5, remember that in the case of Xbox Series X|S the expansion of that Nvme SSD storage does not work with 2280 drives, which is the standard that has been imposed in recent times, but through an official expansion card (Seagate has one) encapsulated in a casing that connects to an external port on the console and that, inside, hides a SSD 2230 drive, the same one used, for example, by Valve’s Steam Deck.
Then we leave you the three discounted models that you can acquire for a limited time to increase the capacity of your portable PC or PS5.
Samsung 980 Pro 1TB
Is about one of the most popular Samsung models and a safe bet that has been surpassed only by the 990 range of the Koreans. In this case the unit offers read speeds of 7,000 MB/s, NVMe interface (PCle Gen 4.0 x 4) and what is commonly known as an M.2 form factor. You can only install this component on your laptop and not on the PS5, at least if you buy it as is, since it does not have the heatsink that Sony recommends using if you are going to insert it into the console.
Samsung 980 Pro 1TB (with heatsink)
This model is the same one that you have just above, only that comes prepared to open the PS5 case and install it, since it comes with the standard heatsink and, therefore, meets the requirements imposed by the Japanese. It offers the same 7,000 MB/s read speed rates, PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2, and nearly 1TB of storage to install more games, capture endless screens and videos, and more. Right now you have it on sale.
Samsung 980 Pro 500GB
Finally we bring you the same version of the previous SSDs only in a half tera format, that is, about 500 GB. Surely if you do the math, the first 1 TB model will be more profitable economically, but if you simply don’t want to spend more, then it becomes your first option.
