Western Digital India has officially launched a new SSD range in the country, with the WD Black SN750 being the main product, built for gamers and professionals. Having capacities from 250GB to 2TB, the SN750 offers a read speed of up to 3,470MB/s.

The WD Black SN750 runs with the NVMe standard instead of SATA, making it much faster comparatively. For gamers, how this matters is that the performance of installation, loading, and playing are all made faster with the NVMe SSDs.

The company also has introduced the WD Blue SN500 with the sequential read of 1700 and sequential write of 1400 MB/s. The WD Black SSDs come with the WD BLACK SSD Dashboard with the ability to optimize performance by enabling the gaming mode feature. This disables the low power mode function on the SSD, which keeps your drive firing on all cylinders during intense gaming sessions.

Following are the different SSDs that are now available in India.
