Optimised for hardcore gamers looking for unparalleled performance, the WD_BLACK SN850X NVMe SSD is a powerful internal PCIe® Gen4 SSD 1 that delivers breakneck read speeds of up to 7,300 MB/s 2. With minimised latency, predictive loading and adaptive thermals management, gamers can expect an incredible gaming experience with fast load-times, rich visual experience and uncompromising thermal performance. The downloadable WD_BLACK Dashboard with its new Game Mode 2.0 (Windows® only) unlocks PC performance-boosting features so gamers can play, stream, record, and dominate at the top of their game. An optional heatsink (1TB and 2TB models) is available to help maintain peak performance and includes RGB lighting to complement any gaming rig.

The WD_BLACK SN850X NVMe SSD is now available at leading resellers in Australia, starting from $290 for the non-Heatsink model and $329 for the Heatsink model.
