One to have for those new gaming handhelds
Western Digital has unveiled its new WD_BLACK SN770M NVMe SSD, an M.2 2230 form-factor SSD aimed at new handheld consoles like the Valve Steam deck, ASUS ROG Ally, and others.
With and without heatsink
Samsung has announced the release of a 4TB version of the SSD 990 Pro series NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD. Based on Samsung's latest eight-generation V-NAND technology and enhanced controller, the 4TB SSD 990 Pro hits peak performance of up to 7,450MB/s for read and 6,900MB/s for write, all at $344.99.
Around 12GB/s sequential read and write speed
Gigabyte has unveiled a direct successor of its Aorus Gen5 10000 SSD, the Aours Gen5 12000 SSD, which peaks at up to 12,400 MB/s read and up to 11.8GB/s of sequential write performance.
Both available now
Crucial, or to be precise Micron, has chosen Computex 2023 to officially launch its latest Crucial T700 Gen 5 SSD and the Crucial Pro series DRAM lineup.
And there does not seem to be a fix
Some SanDisk Extreme SSDs are wiping people's data and there does not appear to be a fix yet.
Perfect for those Steam Decks, Surfaces, and upcoming Asus ROG Ally
Sabrent has launched its newest Rocket Q NVMe Gen 4 SSDs that will come in M.2 2230 form-factor, and in capacities of up to 2TB, making them perfect for upgrading the Steam Deck, Microsoft Surface, upcoming ASUS ROG Ally handheld console, or any other device that is limited to M.2 2230 SSD form-factor.
Power will set the tone
A Pure Storage exec is predicting that no more hard disk drives will be sold after 2028 because of electricity costs and availability and NAND $/TB declines.
Coming in Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, and Darth Vader EKWB RGB heatsinks
Seagate has announced its new special-edition Star Wars FireCuda NVMe SSDs, coming in 1TB and 2TB capacities. These are special-edition versions of Seagate's FireCuda 530 NVMe PCIe 4 SSDs. The lightsaber-themed heatsink comes from EK Water Blocks and looks pretty cool.
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch
The three year old Samsung 980 Pro PCIe 4.0 drive is becoming the knock off of choice with some rather good forgeries suddenly appearing.
