Only some of the very latest desktop and laptop computers have Gen 4 compatibility. With Gen 4, this SSD will provide the best performing reads and writes available today. Some laptops may have Gen-4 compatibility, but may ship with a Gen-3 SSD.
Our new Thinkpad X1 laptop is Gen-4 compatible, but came with a Gen-3 SSD. We opened the bottom of the laptop and replaced the SSD with this Samsung 980 Pro 2TB, and love the incredibly fast performance boost.
If you want a M.2 SSD but your computer does not support Gen-4, a quality Gen-3 SSD may be a better choice than a Gen-4. For example, a Samsung 970 EVO Plus 2TB uses MLC cells which could give better longevity than the TLC used in the 980 Pro.
For a similar deal, a Kingston NV1 2TB M.2 Gen 3 SSD is available for $170.$342

This is one of the few 4th generation NVMe SSD cards on the market today, and is probably one of the best. Only the newest laptops, desktops, and mini PCs have a performance benefit from 4th Gen NVMe, so check with your computer's specifications to see if NVMe "Gen 4" is supported.
Computers older than a year may not support Gen 4. The Samsung 980 1TB M.2 SSD (not the "Pro") is a cheaper alternative, providing the same performance as the Pro on NVMe "Gen 3" systems. It may even provide equal or better longevity since it uses MLC-based memory cells, versus TLC cells on the Pro.$175
