Save more for less with this Western Digital SN850 SSD

The world of PC parts can be very confusing, especially with so many different options popping up almost daily. New technology here, there and everywhere. Sometimes it can be too overwhelming to find out which parts are good for a fast computer, but don’t worry – we’re here to help.

WD – or, Western Digital – has been on a crusade to compete with Samsung’s computer bits for a while now, and may have finally achieved that with this SSD. In layman’s terms, it will kick your computer to super speed, run games and operating system super fast and fast as. This particular SSD supports the PCle 4.0 standard, allowing for much faster read and write speeds than the older 3.0 interface. As Katharine found in her review of the WD SN850, this drive is also both faster and cheaper than its big PCIe 4.0 rival, the Samsung 980 Pro.

This performance comes at a price that you have probably noticed, it’s Black Friday week – and the SN850 is for sale. There is no better time to download this speed booster to your pc, and this particular deal even includes a heatsink, to help prevent thermal throttling.

Keep in mind that to use this bit of technology, you need a motherboard and a CPU that are both PCIe 4.0 compatible. Intel 11th Gen and 12th Gen chips will both work fine, as will AMD’s Ryzen 5000 chips. Our guide to matching your CPU to your motherboard will help you make sure your rig is ready to go for this newly affordable SSD.
