SSDs have been on the game for a while now. HDDs are still in use, but as SSDs become more and more affordable, they are losing ground in the consumer market. This is not the first time something has steadily been replaced with a newer and improved product. This is the case with SSDs. SATA SSDs are still on the spot, but PCIe NVMe SSDs are still the best option if you seek top performance. As their prices drop, the more attractive they tend to be. Moreover, with M.2 SSDs, we solved the cable headache. This article will include the best available NVMe SSDs for all budgets. If you are interested in the 2,5″ SATA SSDs segment, you can also read the article below:


In this list, we suggest the best available options. Performance is all that matters.

Samsung 990 Pro

  • Top performance
  • Improved thermal performance than SN850
  • SLC cache that is on the spot
