OVERVIEW

Superior Performance for High-End Computing


For high-end computing applications like gaming, HD media playback, or creative software, look to WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSDs, with capacities available up to 2TB. Western Digital 3D NAND technology helps enable sequential read speeds up to 560 MB/s (for 500GB and 1TB1 models)2 and sequential write speeds up to 530 MB/s (for 500GB and 1TB models) for fast system boot-ups, quick application responses, and rapid transfer speeds.

An SSD is designed with no moving parts to help protect against data loss when accidentally bumped or dropped. And with 1.75M hours MTTF (mean time to failure)3, up to 500 TBW (terabytes written)4(2TB model), and several error correction technologies, WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSDs can help guard data for years to come.

Disclosures

1.

As used for storage capacity, one terabyte (TB) = one trillion bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending on operating environment.

2.

For 500GB and 1TB capacity. As used for transfer rate, megabyte per second (MB/s) = one million bytes per second. Performance will vary depending on your hardware and software components and configurations.

3.

MTTF = Mean Time To Failure based on internal testing using Telcordia stress part testing.

4.

TBW (terabytes written) values calculated using JEDEC client workload (JESD219) and vary by product capacity.

5.

Active power draws are up to 25% lower during sequential reads than previous generations of WD Blue™ SSD at the 500GB capacity point.
