by on22 January 2019

Coming with Gaming Mode

Western Digital has unveiled its latest addition to the SSD lineup, the WD Black SN750 series NVMe SSD which is based on WD's own controller and SanDisk's 64-layer 3D TLC NAND, as well as a unique Gaming Mode.

Based on a standard M.2 2280 form-factor with PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe 1.3 interface, the WD Black SN750 will be available in 250GB, 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB capacities. It will also be available with and without an optional EKWB aluminum heatsink, except for the 250GB model.

As far as performance goes, the sequential performance of the WD Black SN750 will peak at 3,470MB/s for read and 3,000MB/s for write, depending on the model, while random 4K performance peaks at 515k IOPS for read and 560k IOPS for write. The endurance is rated at up to 1,200 TBW for the 2TB, 600 TBW for the 1TB, 300 TBW for the 500GB and 200 TBW for the 250GB model.

What makes the WD Black SN750 series special is the so-called Gaming Mode, which disables the low power state in order to decrease latency. This will, of course, raise both temperatures as well as power consumption but will allow users to pull a bit more performance by enabling it via WD's new SSD Dashboard.

The WD Black SN750 SSD series should be available soon with a price set at $79.99 for the 250GB, $129.99 for the 500GB, $249.99 for the 1TB, and $499.99 for the 2TB model. The series is backed by a 5-year warranty.
