The WD_Black SN850X NVMe SSD features the technology that allows it

(Pocket-lint) – Western Digital has announced a new addition to its line of ultra-fast NVMe SSDs.

The recently announced SN850X NVMe PCIe gen 4 offers fast read speeds (up to 7300MB/s), but is also optimized for hardcore gamers and claims “unparalleled performance”.

At first glance, the WD_Black SN850X looks similar to the previous versions from the company, but apart from the x in the name, there are a few other changes as well.

The WD_Black SN850X features several improvements designed to please PC gamers:

  • Predictive loading
  • adaptive thermal management
  • mini latency

An NVMe SSD is indeed a great way to get the most out of your gaming experience, ensuring faster loading speeds and solid performance, but the WD_Black SN850X claims to go the extra mile with these game-boosting features.

Western Digital says you’ll be able to download the WD_Black dashboard and enable Game Mode 2.0. Doing so will unlock performance optimization features that will not only help you play but also help you stream, record, and win games.

What makes the WD_Black SN850X intriguing is its “predictive charging” that apparently uses smart technology to predict what you’re about to do and charges assets as needed. So the WD_Black SN850X is not only faster, but also smarter.

The improved thermal properties should also help with performance and there will be a version with a heatsink (as with previous models) to keep it cool under pressure.

This drive will be available at the Western Digital Store from July 2022 and will be offered in 1 TB, 2 TB and 4 TB formats. Pricing will be confirmed as the launch date approaches.
