WD BLUE SSDs: High capacity, enhanced reliability and blazing speed

All of the PCs used in the WD SPEED RUN CUP 2017 will be equipped with WD Blue™ 3D NAND SATA SSDs. Here’s why.


High capacity with enhanced reliability

A WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD uses 3D NAND technology not only for higher capacities (up to 2TB1) than the previous generation WD Blue SSDs, but also to help reduce cell-to-cell interference for enhanced reliability. 


Enhanced power efficiency

Offering improved endurance, a WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD features an active power draw up to 25% lower2 than previous generations of WD Blue SSDs. And with less power used, you’re able to work longer before recharging your laptop. 


Superior performance for high-end computing

For high-end computing applications like gaming, HD media playback or creative software, look to WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSDs. 3D NAND technology helps:

  • Enable sequential read speeds up to 560MB/s and
  • Sequential write speeds up to 530MB/s for fast system boot-ups
  • Quick application responses, and rapid transfer speeds3.

WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSDs are available in 250GB, 500GB, 1TB and 2TB capacities in both a traditional 2.5-inch/7mm cased drive as well as a single-sided M.2 2280 form factor. Like all WD SSDs, the WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD includes WD F.I.T Lab certification for compatibility with many leading platforms.
