An uber-fast SSD with a hefty price to match
Once the final frontier of solid-state PC performance, SSDs are now pretty much universal. What’s less well established is just how much difference comparative SSD performance makes for gaming as opposed to other workloads.
That’s the context for the shiny new WD Black SN850 SSD. By the numbers, this thing absolutely rips, and is definitely a contender for best SSD for gaming. It’s a PCIe 4.0 drive with some serious performance specs, including 7GB/s peak sequential performance and up to 1 million IOPS. Scary, but in a good way.
