Western Digital Reveals WD Blue SN580 Gen 4 NVMe SSD

Western Digital has today revealed its new WD Blue SN580 Gen 4 NVMe SSD expanding upon its award-winning SSD portfolio.

WD Blue SN580

The new WD Blue SN580 is an M.2 SSD designed for consumers, students and professionals providing a fast and reliable tool to keep their equipment running. It uses a DRAM-less design to conserve power making it a good option for laptop storage. The SN580 is capable of speeds of up to 4150MB/s read and write plus comes in capacities from 250GB to 2TB which I’m surprised to still see 250GB storage being made.

What WD Had To Say

“As creator workflows become more robust and complex with heavy applications and large multimedia assets like 4K video, it’s easy to become frustrated with long load times,” said Eric Spanneut, vice president of client and enterprise SSDs for Western Digital. “The new WD Blue SN580 NVMe SSD boosts productivity, so professionals and entrepreneurial creators can focus on bringing their imaginations to life without having to wait long for files to transfer or programs to load.”

Key Features

  • NVMe PCIe Gen 4.0: Boost productivity and multitask effortlessly between projects with large and complex workflows with increased application responsiveness and boot times with up to 4,150 MB/s read and write speeds (1 TB – 2 TB models).
  • nCache 4.0 technology: Enables blistering fast copying of large files and media assets with high burst write performance and hybrid SLC cache for an optimized creator workflow.
  • Sleek design: Up to 2 TB of storage on a slim M.2 2280 form factor for reliable storage of applications, data, and media including photos, 4K videos and music.
  • Reliability: Have peace of mind with Western Digital’s 5-year limited warranty and a rating up to 900 TBW (2 TB model).
  • Low Power requirements: Keep creating uninterrupted when you’re in the zone or on the go with DRAM-less, low-power storage to help maximize your laptop’s battery life.

Price and Availability

The WD Blue SN580 NVMe SSD is now available for purchase from the Western Digital Store and select retailers, e-tailers, resellers and system integrators, and comes with a 5-year limited warranty.* Capacities range from 250 GB up to 2 TB and start in the U.S. at $27.99 MSRP (USD).
