NVMe solutions, which were once at the top level, have become more affordable with the passage of time. Western Digital’s new entry-level SSDs are NVMe based.
Solid state drives we once installed only for Windows are now being used for storage purposes. With advances in the primary use drive segment, NVMe has dropped to entry level today.
WD Green SN350
The new WD Green drives announced by Western Digital offer a significant improvement over previous SSDs. The new WD Green SN350 family, which is based on M.2 NVMe instead of M.2 SATA, has achieved high sequential reading performance as well as promising IOPS values in terms of its segment. While the models are designed in M.2 2280 format, they will communicate with the system through the PCIe 3.0 x4 interface.
The Green SN350 family, which comes with 240, 480 and 960 GB capacity options, can achieve sequential read / write performance of 2400/1900 MB / s, respectively, in the 960 GB capacity option, while 340K / 380K values can be seen in random operations, respectively.
This seems to be the weakness of the new Green NVMe SSDs, which will exhibit 40, 60 and 80 TBW for 240/480/960 GB capacities. SSDs that will be sold under a 3-year warranty can be said to be assertive with their price. The price is set at $ 240 / $ 43.99, 480GB / $ 54.99 and $ 99.99 for the 960 GB capacity model.
