Chances are, if you've been running heavy workloads for several years on the same PC, you've begun to feel it chug a bit. You might be running out of storage, and a dated drive inside could be holding you back. The WD Blue™ SN570 NVMe™ SSD from Western Digital® could be the solution.
The WD Blue SN570 NVMe SSD is a PCIe®-based device, giving it a ton of extra bandwidth to work with over the SATA-based drives you're likely to find in older PCs and laptops. In fact, the 500GB* and 1TB* models (with a 2TB version expected in 2022) of the WD Blue SN570 NVMe SSD can reach read speeds of up to 3,500MB/s**, so your computer can feel substantially more responsive. This is a huge leap over standard SATA SSDs, never mind traditional hard drives.
All that extra speed can be incredibly valuable for creative endeavors, as you'll be able to store and load up massive project files extra fast. Whether working on your next passion project in Adobe's creative suite or similar photo and video editing software or crunching large amounts of data, with this drive you'll get snappier speeds and more space to store your stuff.
Since you might task the WD Blue SN570 NVMe SSD with holding on to some important files, reliability is essential. This drive is one you can depend on. Not only are your files at a reduced risk because of the nature of an SSD — no moving parts — but Western Digital includes a password protection feature to help keep your files safe. The drive also has serious longevity with an endurance of 600TBW*** on the 1TB model. Western Digital even backs its drive with an industry-leading, five-year warranty.
You might think adding a bunch of fast storage into your system is going to be difficult, but it's actually easy. The WD Blue SN570 NVMe SSD is incredibly power efficient, drawing all the power it needs off of the PCIe interface, so you don't need to add any messy cables or worry about upgrading your power supply. It's also tiny. The M.2 2280 form factor is compact, making for a drive that can go into laptops and small-form-factor PCs quite easily.
If you're ready to upgrade your system with speedy storage that can help extend its life or want to build a compact system that doesn't sacrifice performance, check out the WD Blue SN570 here. Western Digital will even help you get your projects started by including a one-month Adobe Creative Cloud membership with access to Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, Premiere Pro, InDesign, and more.
