Western Digital Reveals WD_BLACK SN750 SE and Battlefield 2042 squad up

Listen…you need to stop playing your games on mechanical drives.  Modern games perform SO much better coming off of a NVMe, as provide by the generational leap offered by next-gen consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.   Well, if your PC needs a similar update, I’ve got a cool little tie-in you may be interested in checking out.  Western Digital is teaming up with DICE to offer a bundle for the WD_BLACK SN750 SE NVMe with the hotly-anticipated Battlefield 2042 on PC.  This game code / hard drive bundle comes in either a 500GB ($114.99) or a 1TB ($179.99) offering, and comes with a full Standard Edition of Battlefield 2042, as well as some to-be-announced pre-order goodness.

We’ve not gotten to bench the SN750 ourselves, but back of the box calculations estimate a 3600 MB/s read, and 2000 MB/s write for the 500GB model, and a 3600 MB/s read and 2830 MB/s write for the 1TB model — something confirmed by more than a few trusted benchmarks.  Not a surprise, given the PCIe Gen4 tech powering this beast.   You can snap it up for yourself right here.

Battlefield 2042 is headed our way on October 22nd, 2021.   If you aren’t up to speed, well…we’ve got you right here:
