Samsung plans to slash SSD prices to (current) HDD levels by 2020

Samsung plans to slash SSD prices to (current) HDD levels by 2020. At the moment, 1 TB HDD drives are about 4 cents per GB, If Samsung is correct, by 2020 consumers will be able to purchase a 512GB SSD for about $40 USD. At that price point it's likely that SSD adoption will greatly speed up, even on low end builds.

To take advantage of the coming inexpensive SSD revolution make sure that your motherboard has PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 connectors. Flash drives that take advantage of the PCIe interface along with NVMe data protocols offer significant performance advantages over traditional SATA SSDs.

Many GIGABYTE motherboards offer support for the M.2 interface and NVMe. To be exact 141 GIGABYTE motherboards have one or more M.2 slots and all motherboards released after including the Z97 series (released in 2014) support NVMe.
