Samsung’s PS5 Compatible SSD With Heatsinks Are Now Available

The Samsung Pro series M.2 SSDs are well regarded and high-performing, meeting all the requirements for use in the PS5. Well, every requirement except for a heatsink, which you had to install yourself. Samsung has removed this extra step from the PS5 SSD process and released its Samsung 980 PRO series SSD with a manufacturer-supplied heatsink right out of the box.

At the moment, you can order the SSDs direct from Samsung, but the listings for both the 1TB and 2TB versions are live on Amazon. However, Amazon has them listed as "temporarily out of stock," which is fairly standard when Amazon puts a placeholder page up for an item its not quite ready to put out for sale.

The Samsung 980 is one of the best PS5 SSDs you can buy, and being able to get one with a heatsink makes things just a little easier for you. Of course, you can always just go ahead and buy the regular Samsung 980 Pro and install your own heatsink, if you're comfortable with that option. It will save you money, too.
