WD 500GB SN750 NVMe SSD specs
Offering read speeds of up to 3,430MB/s, as well as write speeds of up to 2600MB/s, this WD_Black SSD will boost the load times of basically everything on your PC from the OS itself to games and applications.
Another useful feature is the WD_Black SSD Dashboard, which allows you to optimise performance by enabling gaming mode. This disables some background functions and keeps your drive firing on all cylinders for maximum performance when gaming.
A slightly cheaper alternative
If you’re after something on the cheaper side then we’d recommend the WD_Blue 250GB SN500 SSD, which is currently being sold on Amazon for the bargain price of just £44.99.
The catch is the drive’s slower read/write speed compared to the SN750 NVMe SSD, though it is of course still significantly faster than a standard HDD.
Plus it only offers half the storage, which means you'll likely only be able to store a few games before the drive is full. When you consider some of the mammoth install sizes demanded by recent AAA releases you might find the drive filling up quicker than you'd like.
If price is the deciding factor then this is a good option, but if you can stretch your budget we’d definitely recommend going with the WD_Black 500GB SN750 NVMe SSD instead.
