Any chance these new Samsung SSDs are an upgrade option for a MacBook Air 7,2?

Those prices look great. I can't load Big Sur until I find a cheap SSD upgrade for my stock 128GB.

As far as I can gather a standard NVMe drive should work, but I think you'd be better off with the older 970 EVO that has a DRAM cache which makes it faster overall. If you want something less expensive with 90% of the performance of the Samsung 970 Pro look at the WD Black SN750 line, which is cheaper than the Samsung EVO line.
