Upgrade your PC/PS5 with new all-time low on WD_BLACK’s 500GB 7,000MB/s SSD at $88

New low $88

Amazon is now offering the WD_BLACK 500GB SN850 NVMe Internal Gaming SSD Solid-State Drive with Heatsink for $88.31 shipped. This model hit Amazon in spring 2021 at $200 but has more recently been selling in the $110 range across this year and is now seeing a new Amazon all-time low. For comparison sake, this same drive without the built-in heatsink is only $3 less right now. Ready to upgrade your PC gaming rig or a PlayStation 5, the SN850 features a modern M.2 2280 setup with a Gen4 PCIe interface that runs at up to 7,000MB/s – a touch slower than the now $85 heatsink CORSAIR variant. The heat management technology here is designed to minimize “thermal throttling [and] to push the boundaries of performance for top-tier gaming” alongside PS5 compatibility on Sony consoles with software version 21.02-04.00.00 or higher. Get a closer look in our launch coverage and head below for more details. 

You can save even more with the previous-generation WD_BLACK 500GB SN750 NVMe Internal Gaming SSD that boasts its own heatsink tech at $83. But it’s hard to recommend that over the much faster Gen4 solution above for $5 more, especially for PS5 owners. Otherwise, dive into the aforementioned 2022 model CORSAIR deals
