Everyone is talking about Samsung's 980 Pro, and Phison's E18 Gen4 SSDs. However, everyone kind of forgot about the WD Black SN850 (reviewed here).

In our most important metrics, Western Digital's Gen4 Black SN850 2TB SSD is serving up numbers that we've not seen before from a Gen4 SSD. Take a look for yourselves:
Starting with Anvil's, new scoring record for any flash based SSD. MAX IOPS, random read IOPS, new record for any flash based SSD. Gaming, best we've ever seen from a flash based, high-capacity SSD. And consumer workloads, by FAR the best we've seen from any flash-based SSD.
- Sabrent Rocket Q4 4TB NVMe SSD -- 21,040
- Samsung 980 PRO 1TB NVMe SSD -- 23,101
