Grab a Fast Samsung SM961 256GB NVMe SSD for Just $34.99 at Newegg
Samsung’s OEM 960 Pro Gets a Huge Discount
With all of the news about PCI Express 4.0 since Computex the existing Gen3 x4 SSDs on the market might have lost a little of their luster…until prices start to plummet, that is. In this vein seller MyDigitalDiscount on Newegg is currently having a crazy sale on a very fast NVMe drive from Samsung, the SM961, an OEM model introduced way back in 2016 that offers very respectable sequential speeds of up to 3100 MB/s reads and 1400 MB/s writes for this 256GB model.
And sure, the capacity is just 256GB, but at $34.99 (and free shipping, to boot) anyone with multiple M.2 connectors could put together a RAID configuration to challenge even an upcoming PCIe Gen4 drive’s throughput (seq. reads, anyhow) – and do it on existing hardware for $70 shipped. The limit is 10 units per customer, and the sale ends in five days, so if you’ve been putting off purchasing an NVMe drive and have an unused slot this should push you over the edge.
