Running out of room for your games is a sour experience. With large titles and frequent updates, it’s not hard to run out of space on the built-in storage of modern gaming systems, and that can leave you deciding which games to keep and which to delete, not to mention the lengthy download process if you want to play the deleted game again. But, WD_BLACK has the high-speed SSD gaming storage to let you keep your game library available on just a moment’s notice.
Gaming consoles are one of the most restrictive platforms when it comes to available storage, with few systems even offering 1TB* of internal storage. The WD_BLACK D30 Game Drive SSD can augment that internal storage with up to 2TB* of extra external storage. The drive works with both Xbox and PlayStation consoles, letting you play games directly from the drive on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. You can also play legacy Xbox One and PS4 titles directly from the drive on the newer generation of consoles. With the drive, you’ll also have the option to keep a copy of your downloads on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, so you can quickly reinstall the game when you want to play again. With up to 900MB/s** transfer speeds via USB 3.2 Gen 1, you’ll be back playing even the largest games you’ve archived in only a few short minutes.
While the WD_BLACK D30 Game Drive SSD can work for PC gamers as well, there’s also an opportunity to upgrade the internal storage of a lot of gaming PCs. To that end, WD_BLACK has some extra-fast NVMe SSD solutions.
The WD_BLACK SN750 SE NVMe SSD strikes a strong balance of speed and value, providing casual gamers and competitive gamers alike a healthy dose of storage that can speed up their system. With sequential read speeds of up to 3,600MB/s**, the WD_BLACK SN750 SE can help cut down on long load times so you can spend more time gaming. Fast random read and write performance can also help keep the operating system running smoothly if it’s installed on the drive. With the small form factor of the WD_BLACK SN750 SE, it can fit into a variety of systems from large gaming rigs to thin-and-light gaming laptops, giving almost anyone a way to upgrade their gaming system.
Of course, WD_BLACK hasn’t left out those gamers who demand the highest performance from their systems. The WD_BLACK SN850 NVMe SSD is the brand’s premier gaming SSD. It offers speeds most of us wouldn’t have even imagined for our internal storage a few years ago. Over the PCIe 4.0 interface, the WD_BLACK SN850 is capable of up to an incredible 7,000MB/s** read speeds and 5,300MB/s** write speeds. To keep that peak performance going even longer, WD_BLACK also offers a heatsink version of the WD_BLACK SN850 NVMe SSD. And, with up to 2TB* models available, you can give even a massive game library the benefit of these speeds.
So, whether you’re gaming on a console or PC, a new gamer looking to spend more time playing and less waiting for games to load, or a long-time competitive gamer who wants every advantage from your system, WD_BLACK has storage hardware you can turn to.Giveaway on Gleam.io
