The SSD market continues to develop: maybe not at such a gigantic pace as we would like, but still quite actively. This spring, Western Digital introduced an updated generation of SN750 NVMe SSDs with capacities ranging from 250GB to 2TB. Large capacity is aimed mainly at gamers — gaming hits have begun to demand too much space. For example, last year’s Final Fantasy XV needs at least 85 GB just for installation, and if you also download the add-on (DLC), you will need almost 150 GB!

Radiator as an option

There is one more problem with «heavy» games on SSD: when working for a long time under high load, the drive starts to overheat, as a result, its performance drops. The solution suggests itself: install a radiator. The new SN750s have just such an option: the cooling system is developed by EKWB, one of the leaders in this field.

Separately, it is necessary to mention the proprietary WD BLACK SSD Dashboard software, which allows you to optimize the operation of the SSD for current needs: for example, if necessary, disable the power saving mode for the drive to ensure maximum performance.

In general, no revolutionary solutions were noticed in the new product: it is still 64-layer 3D NAND memory and a 3-core SanDisk controller. However, 64 layers did not prevent the manufacturer from making an SSD with a capacity of up to 2 TB.

We got a 500 GB WD SN750 for testing without a heatsink. By the way, due to the increased size, a drive with a heatsink is recommended for use only in desktop computers — they may simply not fit in laptops.

For testing, we used the Gigabyte B360M D3H motherboard for the Intel B360 chipset. In the read / write sequences of 32 blocks in one thread, the speed turned out to be close to the «ceiling» — the drive really demonstrates the declared «up to 3470 Mb / s» reads.

In the toughest test 4KiB Q1T1 (writing blocks of 4 KB across the entire disk), the SN750 also showed decent results. But, what is most interesting, we did not manage to put the drive into throttling mode. However, the temperature factor also depends on the structure of the motherboard: sometimes M.2 is not located in the most successful way and periodically overheats.

The cost of fast high-capacity SSDs is still quite high — especially the new line. For example, our SN750 with a capacity of 500 GB can be bought for .

However, if we consider specifically gaming equipment (and first of all, the advantages of new SSDs are obvious for it), buying such a drive is definitely the right investment. The M.2 format will be relevant for a long time, so even with a major upgrade you will be able to use your drive.
