New WD Black: SN750 NVMe SSD

Published by


Western Digital announced a new WD Black, the SN750 is a new generation of the WD SSDs which also includes a 2TB model. The new series are PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe SSDs based on 64-layer NAND.

WD having acquired Sandisk, the that NAND would be produced by them. The new SSD is based seems identical to that of the previous model (our review here). The performance as such will be roughly similar. Interesting is the addition of a 2TB model to the existing range of a 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB model. Optionally you can purchase one with an EK based heatsink.

Meet the WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD. Today, Western Digital is excited to introduce its second-generation NVMe gaming SSD, enabling gamers and hardware enthusiasts to snag a tangible, next-level competitive boost during intense PC gameplay. You’d been talking with my colleague Alexa Ohm about Western Digital gaming SSDs, and I wanted to keep you updated on the latest member of the gaming device family.

Advancements in PC and graphics technologies are taking PC gaming to new heights. To fully take advantage of the increasingly immersive and responsive in-game experiences, gamers must navigate several challenges, including higher performance demands and large file sizes. Built on Western Digital’s own 3D NAND technology, firmware and controller, with a vertically-integrated SSD platform designed to maximize NVMe SSD performance, the enhanced SSD is purpose-built for today’s data-intense multi-tasking PC gaming environment:

  • Combined with large capacity, the WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD reduces the time required for users to access their programs and files, load games and transfer large games, 4K/8K videos and other data-intensive content. High performance allows users to play, stream, record, edit, chat, and more with exceptional sequential read (up to 3,470 MB/s for 500GB and 1TB model) and write performance (up to 3,000MB/s1 for 1TB model).
  • Up to 2TB capacity in both a single-sided M.2 form factor and a version for desktop systems or custom-built gaming rigs with an integrated heatsink that helps maintain speed and temperature.
  • The sleek EKWB-designed heatsink allows the SSD to maintain longer sustained performance compared with non-heatsink versions.
  • New Gaming Mode feature with a WD Black-exclusive SSD Dashboard, allowing users the flexibility to disable low power mode and keep the SSD running at peak levels for longer, sustained execution when they want non-stop, consistent high performance.
