At this time, you can order SSDs directly from Samsung, but a list of both 1TB and 2TB versions is available on Amazon. However, Amazon lists them as “temporarily out of stock.” This is fairly standard when displaying placeholder pages for items that Amazon isn’t ready to sell.

The Samsung 980 is one of the best PS5 SSDs you can buy, and getting one with a heatsink makes things a little easier.Of course, always go ahead Buy a regular Samsung 980 Pro If you are familiar with that option, install your own heatsink. It also saves you money.
