Older ones will require a firmware update and you'll have to connect it to a computer. I got an older 980 Pro and the speeds were pretty terrible compared to others. I returned it and got a WD850 Black - and got typical results ~ 6500 MB transfer speeds

Check Samsung Magician for the update.

Version: 3B2QGXA7

Should fix the SLC caching/write speed issue.

What's the best deal on a cheaper budget gen 4 1TB drive for the PS5 (yes slower drives will work), probably no caching/DRAMless, TLC vs QLC/3D NAND??

Thanks, well i went to check and it's written October 22nd which is really too far when the Amazon will deliver the 980 tomorrow by then if there's something, it would be too late warranty wise via amazon.
