Samsung Not Working on 970 Pro NVMe SSD in 2 TB Capacities In Contrast to Retailer Leaks

Update: April 29, 2019: A representative on behalf of Samsung contacted us to let us know that the company has not released a 2 TB version of the 970 Pro, and has no current plans to do so either. It appears that the retail leaks were not accurate after all. The original story is below for records.

A year after it has introduced the first versions of its 970 Pro NVMe SSD, Samsung is finally updating its lineup with a 2 TB SKU. Previous generation models always saw a 2 TB solution being made available, so the absence of such a model in the 970 Pro series was a bit amiss.

Two webshops (one German, one Chinese) have already listed the part with its own SKU number, so it really is incoming to the worldwide market. If you're looking for a solid storage option that replaces a hard-drive in terms of storage density, this could be the one for you. A price around the €940 mark is likely to be close to the actual number.

Samsung Introduces 970 EVO, PRO SSDs at Lower Pricing Than Previously Announced

Samsung continues to outpace all competition in the SSD market - which it has basically cornered, at least in enthusisasts' minds, when it comes to performance and reliability. In a bid to strengthen their grip, Samsung have decided to introduce their 970 EVO and 970 PRO SSDs with lower pricing than previously announced. This reduced pricing across the entire capacity catalog is sure to bring the heat to other, competing solutions in the market, and make Samsung's options - which now count with a 5 year warranty - all the more appealing.

The new pricing will see Samsung's 970 EVO, for example, going for $109.99 in its 250 GB form; $199 for 500 GB; $399 for its 1 TB capacity; and $799 in its ultimate, 2 TB form. These prices place it in an extremely competitive light with Intel's 760p, for example ($116.25, $215.45, $399.99 and $1730.01, respectively) and WD's in-house WD Black ($119.99, $234.24 and $449.99 for the 1 TB version). The 970 PRO, the best-performing SSD, will apparently be available from $249.99 (500 GB) and $499.99 (1 TB). Samsung essentially lowered pricing against its previous generation 960 EVO and 960 PRO, while delivering (virtually) across-the-board improvements.
