Learn More About SSDs

SSDs don’t rely on spinning disks or mechanical arms. Instead, they’re made up of flash memory cells, grouped together into flash memory chips, with a controller that orchestrates how data is written to and read from these chips.

Types of SSDs

Internal SSDs sit close to your CPU and use SATA or PCIe® connections to transfer data at high speeds. Try internal SSDs for:

  •  
    PC and PlayStation® gaming
