The new Western Digital Black SN750 NVMe SSD is said to be specially designed for demanding gamers. As part of the Black series, the SSD offers a new design as well as a so-called gaming mode in which latency is to be reduced even further. The technical data sounds promising, but can the WD Black SN750 also convince in our test?
The SSD only comes with an instruction manual as a physical accessory. The WD SSD Dashboard program can display, among other things, available capacity, operating temperature, and SMART attributes. The software must be downloaded from WD’s website.
The SSD can also be ordered with a heat sink to delay reaching the temperature limit. The SSD provided to us for testing, however, comes without the heat sink.
