A new version of Samsung’s 980 Pro Gen 4 SSD will be making its way to the market this holiday season in the form of a heatsink version for PlayStation 5 owners. This new version of the 980 Pro will feature a thick metal heatsink, designed to cool the drive in the PS5’s airflow constrained environment. But, there’s nothing stopping you from using this drive in a PC, where you could see higher sustained read and write speeds.

The new 980 Pro looks very similar to the normal 980 Pro and other Samsung SSDs, featuring a matte black finish. The heatsink provides cooling on both the bottom and top of the drive, with four gaps visible on the top section of the SSD, which will provide more thermal dissipation compared to just filling those spaces out with metal.
