The WD Black SN850X NVMe SSD comes with unmatched read speeds ...

The WD Black SN850X NVMe SSD is available today, and it offers performance that you won't find in any other PCIe 4.0 drive. In fact, it has unmatched read speeds that make it the ideal choice for anyone who only wants top-tier components in their system.

At first glance, the WD Black SN850X might be confused for its closest competitor, the SN850. However, there is no mistaking the newer drive's staggering 7,300MB/s speeds, which is up 300MB/s from its predecessor.

The WD Black SN850X is truly flexing its muscles in write speeds, at 6,300MB/s, an increase of 1,000MB/s over the SN850. With specs like these, the WD Black SN850X appears to be a contender for the best SSD for gaming, but its faster speeds come at a higher price.

The WD Black SN850X is available from today in 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB capacities, with prices starting at $159.99 USD / 157.99 GBP. PCIe 5.0 SSDs like the Corsair MP700 promise to push the boundaries of read and write speeds even further.
