Performance for High-End Computing
For high-end computing applications such as gaming, HD media playback, or creative software, WD Blue solid-state drives have 545 MB/s read and 525 MB/s write speeds you need for the performance you want. Tiered caching technology utilizes SLC (single-level cell) and TLC (triple-level cell) flash technology to enable these impressive sequential read and write speeds, allowing for fast system boot up, quick application response, and rapid transfer of data.
With no moving parts, a solid-state drive is designed to help protect against data loss if a drive is accidentally bumped or dropped. With 1.75M hours of MTTF (mean time to failure) and an endurance rating of up to 400 TBW (terabytes written), WD Blue SSDs can help guard data for years to come. WD Blue solid-state drives also use several leading error-correction technologies to help prevent data loss and provide lasting reliability.
WD Blue SSDs are optimized for multitasking and can easily run several resource-heavy applications simultaneously. This feature lets you run a background virus scan, play a 4K video, and check an email message.
