Buckle up, friends: This is the lowest price I’ve ever seen a 2TB NVMe SSD offered for sale. Amazon offers for $75 the 2TB Silicon Power Gen3 SSD. Remember when a solid-state drive costing 10 cents per gigabyte was considered an exceptional value? This amounts to approximately four cents per byte.
The drive from Silicon Power will not set any performance milestones. It employs the older PCIe 3.0 interface (we’ve moved on to PCIe 5) and is one of the new species of “Host Memory Buffer” SSDs that eschew onboard DRAM to help drive down prices. (It worked in this case.)
Amazon sells 2TB Silicon Power Gen3 SSDs for $75.
All things considered, this triple-layer cell drive will boot Windows and operate your games and applications at the blazing-fast speeds for which SSDs are famous.
It should not be used with a PlayStation 5 because it does not support HMB technology, and it will be slower than newer-generation drives if you frequently conduct large file transfers, but if all you want is a large, quick SSD to store your PC games and files, this is an incredible deal.
Neither is it the only one. For $80, B&H Photo offers a 2TB Intel 670p SSD with DRAM for PS5 users who require an SSD with DRAM. Pick your poison—but don’t miss out. These jaw-dropping deals are exceptional methods to significantly increase your storage capacity without breaking the bank. Four cents per measure. Sheesh.
