Extension of its consumer SN series, Western Digital has just presented its new WD Black SN770 SSDs , storage units in M2 NVMe format designed for the mid-range that offer a great balance between performance and price.
Unlike other superior models of its family, this time we find a module with a compact design and no heatsink, without making an excessive difference in terms of performance to add total compatibility for desktop and laptop computers.
As the brand itself has shared, the WD Black SN770 has been developed to meet the expectations of the main SSD consumers, keeping a special focus on the public gamer , with a PCIe 4 interface that offers fast sequential read speeds of up to 5150 MB/s and sequential write speeds of 4900 MB/s allowing users to enjoy fast file transfers and short load times .
On the other hand, WD has also provided some random performance numbers in the form of up to 740,000 read IOPS and 800,000 write IOPS , further offering a 40% improvement in performance and 20% in energy efficiency versus the previous generation WD SN750 SE. Thus, although in performance they are slightly below what other of its solutions offer, such as the WD SN850 , it should be noted that the company is directing this product towards a premium mid-range consumer market.
And it is that the real attraction of the WD Black SN770 lies in its economic nature . As the company has shared, all variants of these SSDs are now available for purchase through the official website , with prices starting at 76.99 euros from 250 GB SKU, increasing to €112.99 for the 500 GB model, going through €186.99 for the 1 TB model, and reaching a price of €438.99 for the 2 TB. It is also available at some retailers.
