I like loading my games super fast. You should, too. It saves so much time and after a while you forget what life was like when you had time to get a coffee between loading games. Upgrade your solid state drive to the Samsung 970 Evo Plus 1TB NVMe drive while it’s on sale for $114.99 at Newegg. You need to use the code 93XSH25 during checkout to bring the price down, but you won’t find the 1TB version going this low anywhere else. Several places have matched the $130 sale price even though it more often sells for around $140 or more. Amazon does it have it for around $123, but Newegg’s deal is the best for the moment. This is a Newegg Shell Shocker deal as well, so it might sell out or expire before the end of the day.
Samsung 970 Evo Plus 1TB SSD | $25 off
So you stick one of these M.2 drives on your motherboard, and it’s going to change the way you load games. The 970 Evo Plus can give you read and write speeds up to 3,500 MB/s and 3,300 MB/s respectively. That’s super fast and really impressive compared to how fast things loaded just a few years ago. It’s a huge upgrade over hard drives and even over other SSDs that don’t have the M.2 form factor or NVMe technology. Obviously cost is usually a factor in instances like this, but that’s why you look for deals!
The SSD can handle up to 600 terabytes written, which makes it extremely durable for the long haul. Plus the Dynamic Thermal Guard helps minimize performance drops by monitoring the temperature keeping it cool.
You can use Samsung’s Magician software if you want. It’s free, doesn’t take up a lot of space, and can help you maintain the life of your drive. It keeps track of firmware updates and gives you ways to encrypt and protect your data.
