If you’re building a new AMD Ryzen-based PC through the end of 2019 or into next year, there’s so much you can take advantage of. One of these is the new generation of PCIe 4.0 SSDs, capable of read and write speeds like we’ve never seen before on consumer storage drives.
There are a couple of caveats, though, before you pull the trigger. PCIe 4.0 is a standard only currently supported on the AMD X570 chipset and with Ryzen 3000 series processors to unlock maximum performance.
The drive will work with older X470 or B450 motherboards or even earlier but only to PCIe 3.0 speeds. So even if you’re thinking of upgrading next year, you’ll be able to use the drive right now and unleash it in the future.
However if you’re not using the latest generation hardware from AMD, or you’re an Intel user, Amazon also has some hot deals on Sabrent’s Rocket PCIe 3.0 SSDs which are all fully compatible. On a 256GB or 512GB drive you can save as much as a whopping 55%.
All of these deals are only around until the end of the day, so don’t miss out on some truly bananas savings on fast storage for your PC.
