Western Digital recently launches an updated version of its WD Black NVMe SSD, with higher capacity and better optimization. WD also partners with EK Water Blocks to offer a variant with heatsink on both top and bottom.
The second-generation SSD is called the WD Black SN750, which has mostly the same hardware combination like the previous one. It is equipped with WD’s own custom memory controller, firmware and 64-layer 3D TLC NAND flash. The SN750 now has four different capacities to choose from, including 250 GB, 500 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB.
The new drive utilizes a PCIe 3.0 x4 interface and NVMe protocol to transfer data. It can reach maximum sequential read and write speeds at up to 3470 MB/s and 3000 MB/s respectively. Lower capacity models will have slightly worse write performance at around 1600 MB/s. For endurance, the SSD has rated TBW from 200 TB to 1200 TB.
The WD Black SN750 only comes in M.2 2280 form factor. For standard versions with no heatsink attached, it costs $79.99 USD for 250 GB, $129.99 USD for 500 GB, $249.99 USD for 1 TB and $499.99 USD for 2 TB (MSRP). They should be available for purchase now in various retailers.
