5 Best PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 Samsung SSDs for Gaming and Blazing-Fast Computer

Does your computer boot up slowly?

Just imagine you have a great CPU setup with a high-end processor from Intel or Ryzen or whatsoever and also have multiple top-notch RAM sticks, but still, when you boot your computer or turn on your laptop it's just taking a much longer time than expected.

So what's the reason or what is missing even after having all the great hardware to have such less speedy booting of your PC?
The answer is your CPU isn't getting enough support from your storage devices like HDD or Hard Disk Drive though you have more than 8GB or 16GB RAM on more than one slot(for instance).

5 Best Samsung PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD for Gaming and Video Editing

So, how can you speed up your laptop or computer's booting speed or app launching speed?

In order to speed up the performance of the present generation's computer or laptop, SSD is a must, especially for gaming, professional video editing, or motion graphics designing.
Consumers and prosumers all around the world are upgrading to M.2 NVMe SSDs or PCIe SSD for a blazing-fast computer experience.

The biggest myth about this generation's gaming, video editing, and all the other stuff that need faster reading and writing speed is that SSD is the 3rd most important thing to improve the computer or laptop speed, booting speed, and even app launching time.

What type of SSDs is the best for increasing computer speed?

So when you're about to choose the best possible SSD within your budget there are actually a lot of choices for you. There are SATA SSD, M.2 SSD, PCIe SSD, NVMe SSD, etc. You might be thinking to pick the most speedy SSD for you.

But let me remind you that in order to pick or choose the best or most speedy SSD you need to keep in mind that some of the SSDs are bests only if you want to have a larger storage size SSD. And some are bests for gaming or video editing with higher reading and writing speed.

Right now NVMe SSDs are most popular to the professionals and for extremely heavy gamers and professional video editing. Actually, NVMe SSDs have the most powerful NAND flash memory for the fastest software launching time and reading and writing speed.

That's the reason we decided to talk about the "5 Best NVMe PCIe M.2 SSDs for Professional Video Editing, Gaming, and Blazing-Fast Computer".

But why Samsung SSDs and only 5 best Samsung SSDs?

Right now if you look at the top-rated or best user rated SSDs you'll find more than the best 60% SSDs are from Samsung within the top 100 best users rated SSDs.

Do NVMe SSDs support every laptop or computer? Or can you use an NVMe SSD on any M.2 SSD slot?

The answer is "No". You can't use NVMe SSD on every M.2 SSD slot unless that supports NVMe SSD's feature.
Some of them will let you use an NVMe SSD but you won't get the upscaled speed that you chose the NVMe SSD for. In that case, you will just get the speed of a normal M.2 SSD.

So if you have a laptop or computer motherboard that supports NVMe SSD, and you're certain about that. Then NVMe or PCIe SSDs are far better than SATA SSD in terms of speed, gaming, or whatever aspects you're willing to compare with.

So What are the 5 best Samsung NVMe SSDs for professional video editing, gaming, and faster computer or laptop?

1. Samsung 980 Pro PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 1TB SSD

The price of the Samsung 980 Pro PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 1TB SSD in the USA is $190.
At present time this is the best Samsung SSD available out there right now for the best performance from your computer. It's a PCIe Gen 4.0 M.2 NVMe SSD which has a blazing-fast 7000 MB/s reading speed and 5000 MB/s writing speed.

This SSD is backward-compatible with PCIe Gen 3.0 supported motherboard and in that case, it'll have nearly half of the speed of PCIe Gen 4.0 SSD.
Samsung developed and manufactured all the parts and components of this 980 Pro Series  SSDs by themselves for durable performance.

2. Samsung 980 Pro PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 500GB SSD

The 500GB variant of Samsung 980 Pro PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSD is available at the price of $110.
This one is ideal for the graphics designers and professional video editors who edit 4K videos. It'll serve with a high amount of reading and writing speed during encoding.

The maximum sequential reading speed we got from this NVMe SSD during our test is 3121 MB/s and the writing speed is 2652 MB/s. People who are on a budget and looking for a low price PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD can check this one. Even the consistency of speed was very noticeable during our test.

3. Samsung 970 Pro PCIe 3.0 NVMe M.2 1TB SSD

Samsung 970 Pro PCIe Gen 3.0 NVMe M.2 1TB SSD is an older version of 980 Pro PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD.
It is available in the USA for $270. Yeah, it's quite costlier than 980 Pro SSDs due to the manufacturing cost of the previous generation SSDs.

However, this 970 Pro PCIe 3.0 NVMe M.2 SSD has 5 years international warranty, and the maximum sequential reading speed of this SSD is 3500 MB/s. It's half of the 980 Pro PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD.
And the sequential writing speed of this SSD is 2700 MB/s.

We don't think anyone will choose this one over 980 Pro SSDs when the price of those also is cheaper. But the real-life performance of this PCIe 3.0 SSD is very satisfying. And more than 71% of users of this SSD recommend it.

4. Samsung 970 Pro PCIe 3.0 NVMe M.2 512GB SSD

Samsung 970 Pro NVMe M.2 512GB SSD is the 2nd variant of the 970 Pro series. These SSDs are manufactured with very effective thermal guard protection to maintain stable performance and keep the SSD chip cooler during heavy usage.

The price of this PCIe 3.0 NVMe SSD in the USA is $160.

It's a very low-power-consuming gaming SSD for stable and fluent gaming. But the present generation SSDs can offer much better speed at an impressively low price because of advanced NAND flash memory tech.
So it'll be a wise decision to go for 980 Pro NVMe SSD instead of 970 Pro.

5. Samsung 970 EVO Plus PCIe 3.0 NVMe M.2 1TB SSD

Here's the most popular and best-rated M.2 NVMe SSD of all time from Samsung. And it's the Samsung 970 EVO Plus PCIe 3.0 NVMe 1TB SSD. The previous SSDs that we talked about are recently best-rated SSDs and most selling too.

But Samsung 970 EVO Plus is still the best-rated Samsung SSD according to the 313K user benchmarks all around the world. Yeah, these are the publicly published benchmarks but still, out there are a massive amount of satisfied users of this SSD who made sure it still has more than 2% market shares of SSD.

Samsung 970 EVO Plus PCIe 3.0 NVMe M.2 1TB SSD Price in the USA is $150.

At this time it's considered as an older generation of PCIe SSD. But think about those motherboards where you can't use PCIe 4.0 SSD, so for that reason considering the price, and stable, and consistent performance of this NVMe SSD you can undoubtedly go for this one.
