It’s no secret SSD prices are expected to rise in the months ahead yet shop around and bargains are still available for those in the market for a high-speed upgrade.

Samsung’s eagerly anticipated 4TB 990 Pro is a fine example. Introduced just a few months ago at $344.99, the firm’s best drive has already undergone a swift 19 per cent price cut, lowering the asking fee to a much more palatable $279.99. That’s the best price we’ve ever seen on this flagship model, and though UK availability remains patchy, the same drive can be found for around £270 if you shop around.

While there are even cheaper 4TB options on the market – the Lexar NM790 in particular is worth a closer look at $188.99 – Samsung’s drive is about as good as it gets for PCIe 4.0 M.2 storage. Sequential speeds scale up to a blistering 7,450MB/s, there’s a 4GB dedicated cache, support for hardware encryption, and five-year warranty from one of the industry’s biggest names.

You can see why the 2TB model scored so favourably in last year’s Club386 review, and the addition of a 4TB variant is welcomed by those shopping for the ultimate game drive, be it for PC or PS5.
