As already mentioned the premium you're paying is to have a device that can operate at PCIe Gen 4. However, there's really no point in paying for that even if you do have a chipset that can support it.

All the current gen 4 consumer SSDs are using the same controller anyways so there's not much to differentiate them besides the NAND being used and the quality of the validation.

The extra money is better spent on a drive that likely has better testing and reliability. Something like a Samsung 970 Evo will likely be a better choice.

Also, while good to keep in mind how much SSDs cost in the past (even just a few months ago) the market is constantly changing. Right now we're in a high demand situation where NAND and DRAM prices remain high so that will be reflected in the higher prices for SSDs. Since the market is cyclical you can expect prices to fall in the future for higher capacity drives, partially driven by advancing technology (more QLC, more layers per die, higher density fab process, etc.) and partially due to market supply/demand.
Speed, reliability, type of memory can affect the price. This drive has the speed part due to it using pcie 4.0, which only AMD boards (x570, b550 chipsets) can utilize at the moment.

Can someone please help me understand what is the main difference between a 1TB NVMe drive that is $200 and another 1TB NVMe that is only $130? Is there some speed difference?

Newegg will not let me add more than 1 to my cart. NOOOOOO! I have a hyper x16 m.2 pci card that needs 4 of these bad boys with my amd motherboard!

Guess I'll have to keep the wd blacks in there from the wd direct sale. it gets 11.5 GB/s read AND write btw if anyone is interested.

Difference is basically speed. The PCIE4 version does generate more heat and requires a heatsink, whereas the gen3 does not.

Dang it I just ordered it from amazon for $20 more. But Newegg has been having delayed shipping issues. Got a case from them few weeks ago and was delayed for 2 weeks. Ended up cancelling the order. I ordered my drive on Friday night from amazon and got it today, Sunday. I'm good. Can't wait to install and use it.

Yes but for 99 percent of the users totally irrelevant.
