Fancy a 1TB PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD with DRAM and heatsink selling at half price? Check this out

Crucial P2 SSD on a motherboard

This Black Friday sale season seems like it's a great time to get a new solid-state drive (SSD) or upgrade your existing one.

Recently we covered some great deals on Crucial SSDs, both internal and external, and today we have got some more deals coming your way. In fact, we think these are even better than the ones we covered earlier.

The deal comes in the form of a PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSD from Corsair that is selling for half of what the original MSRP is. It also packs a heatsink so you wouldn't have to worry about your SSD running hot. This is a very nice addition since SSDs are pretty heat-sensitive, much more than their HDD counterparts, and generally work best under 75°C. And it's currently selling at much lower prices than other PCIe 4.0 SSD options.

The product we are talking about here is the Corsair MP600 1TB NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD.

While the Corsair MP600 is definitely one of the best SSD deals we have had in a while, here's another one just in case you don't want an SSD with a heatsink or want to DIY one; or perhaps you want the minimum footprint from your NVMe drive on your motherboard.

In that case, you can check out the AORUS Gen4 SSD 1TB. While you do lose the heatsink on the AORUS, the drive is rated for significantly higher Input/output operations per second (IOPS) than the MP600, and has a slightly higher Mean time between failure (MTBF).


Specifications of AORUS Gen4 SSD 1TB:

  • M.2 2280
  • Cache: 1GB DDR4 DRAM
  • Sequential Read speed: Up to 5,000 MB/s

  • Sequential Write speed: Up to 4,400 MB/s

  • Random Read IOPS: up to 750k

  • Random Write IOPS: up to 700k

  • Endurance: 1,800 TBW

  • MTBF: 1.77 million hours

Bear in mind that you'll need a PCIe 4.0-capable motherboard to run this. AMD's 500 series chipsets (barring A520) and Intel's 500, as well as 600-series chipset motherboards, have support for PCIe 4.0.

But what if you don't have a PCIe 4.0-capable motherboard?

In that case, we can have a look at some of the PCIe 3.0 Crucial SSD deals that we had posted about earlier.

Or, you can also check out the Samsung 980 NVMe 1TB SSD that, despite being a PCIe 3.0 drive, is much faster than Crucial's, and is on sale for less than $100 (link below).

Samsung 980 NVMe SSD

Samsung 980 1TB NVMe PCIe 3.0 SSD specifications:

  • M.2 2280
  • Cache: DRAM-less, but has Host memory buffer (HMB)
  • Sequential Read speed: 3,500 MB/s
  • Sequential Write speed: 3,000 MB/s
  • Random Read IOPS: 500K
  • Random Write IOPS: 480K
  • Endurance: 600 TBW
  • MTBF: 1.5 million hours
