Western Digital Shifts Toward Gaming with WD Black SN750

Western Digital finally follows Nvidia and AMD into the gaming market.

Western Digital today announced WD Black SN750, an NVMe SSD supporting up to 2TB in a single drive. The M.2 form factor offers high read (up to 3,470 MB/s for 500GB and 1TB model) and write (up to 3,000MB/s for 1TB model) data speeds for PC hardware enthusiasts. The SN750 runs from 250GB up to 2TB, with a manufacturer's standard retail price ranging from $79.99 up to $499.99.

With the new focus on gaming, Western Digital has added a new SSD Dashboard for the WB Black SN750. This dashboard will allow players to turn off low-power mode, keeping the drive running at the top-end for longer period of time.

If you're ready for a fully premium version of WD Black SN750, Western Digital will be offering a version with a heatsink. The heatsink is intended to allow the drive to run for longer periods of time at peak performance. The heatsink model of the WD Black SN750 is coming in Spring 2019.

"More intense, longer game play also requires well-managed thermal performance, particularly for high-performance NVMe SSDs. We have pushed the boundaries of storage to give hardcore gamers the competitive edge they desire," said Western Digital vice president marketing, data center and client computing Eyal Bek.

Western Digital will be showing off the new storage solution at PAX South 2019 in San Antonio, Texas.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
