With Black Friday now demoted to "Last Friday", it’s the turn of Cyber Monday to host the handful of remaining SSD deals. Thought it’s more than a handful, really – multiple big, stretching fistfuls of quality PC storage deals are still running, and should continue to do so until the clock strikes midnight. Or until they run out of stock. Hopefully the former.
I’ve kept this list, which covers many of the best SSDs for gaming at any price, mainly focused on NVMe and SATA SSDs for your PC’s innards. The only, deserved exceptions are some deals I found on the best microSD cards for the Steam Deck; if you own one of Valve’s portable PCs, I heartily recommend one of these lil’ things as the first accessory you get for it.
Those of you who are instead after an NVMe drive for your desktop, remember to double check what your CPU and motherboard will support: not all systems, or even individual M.2 slots, will support PCIe 4.0 SSDs as well as older PCIe 3.0 models. Once you know what you need, read on, and/or visit our main Cyber Monday PC deals hub for more last-minute hardware sale highlights.
It took a little longer than in the UK, but the US eventually found some worthwhile deals on the megafast SN850X. This PCIe 4.0 cuts game loading times compared to the old SN850, which was pretty quick itself.
