Samsung bills this model as being PS5-ready, both in terms of supplying the required heatsink to keep the drive cool in your console and with its sequential read speeds of up to 7,000MB/s and sequential write speeds up to 5,100MB/s. While it’s true that we’ve had success using slower M.2 SSDs in a PS5, future games may require higher speeds, so it’s a good idea to get the most capable SSD for your money — and this is one of them.
Of course, you can use this in a PC if you’d prefer, but keep in mind that it’ll work fastest mounted into a PCIe 4.0 motherboard. While backward compatible with PCIe 3.0 motherboards that have a spare M.2 slot, you’ll get slower transfer speeds compared to PCIe 4.0.
Samsung’s 980 Pro is a fast PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD that’s capable of sequential read speeds of up to 7,000MB/s and write speeds of up to 5,000MB/s. These specs make it a great choice for a modern PCIe 4.0-equipped PC or for a PS5.

Apple’s refurbishment program is one of the finest around, offering a one-year limited warranty, with AppleCare still being on the table for extra coverage if you want to buy that. What’s more, the product will arrive in like-new condition. The only downside is that it doesn’t include an HDMI cable. Read our review.
