British retailer SCAN has listed Samsung’s 2 TB PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD. The price and date of availability have been removed from the store page, but a Chiphell user reports that it had been listed for £443.99 (roughly $597 USD). We previously reported on the 980 Pro being released, but at that time, the 2 TB variant was not a part of the launch. To date, only 250 GB, 500 GB, and 1 TB sizes have been available. The 2 TB version could launch at a lower price in the U.S., as the 1 TB version retails for $229.99 on the Samsung site.

It is not known if the 2 TB model will share the same specifications as the other models in the 980 Pro line. Manufacturers will often make subtle changes to their larger, more high-end offerings, so some differences are a possibility, but here are the 1 TB model’s specs for reference.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
