WD Blue 1TB SSD ReviewPosted on 2016-10-11 17:39:56 by Thomas De Maesschalck
WD is taking another stab at the Solid-State Drive market after purchasing SanDisk earlier this year by releasing the WD Green and WD Blue SSD series. The WD Green SATA consumer SSD is aimed at the entry-level market whereas the the WD Blue SATA Consumer SSD is aimed at mainstream consumers. Both series are available in both 2.5? and M.2 form factors, so they will fit in a wide range of desktop and mobile systems. The performance on the WD Blue SSD series varies between capacities, but the sequential read peaks at 545 MB/s and the Sequential write tops out at 525 MB/s. The 4K Random performance reaches up to 100,000 IPS read and 80,000 IOPS write, which is pretty solid for the mainstream market. WD went with a Marvell 88SS1074 4-channel controller and SanDisk 15nm 3-bit per cell (TLC) NAND Flash for this series.
