Inspired by the way people work today, Western Digital Corp. introduced the Western Digital PC SN740 NVMe SSD to help address the unique needs of the hybrid workforce and elevate the computing experience. "Hybrid and remote work environments have become the 'new normal' for businesses over the past few years and have driven tremendous growth in PC shipments," said Eric Spanneut, vice president, Client and Enterprise SSDs, Flash Business Unit, Western Digital. "As work habits and locations change, there is a tremendous opportunity to support our corporate and commercial PC OEMs with storage solutions that are thin and light, have advanced security features and pack more performance while preserving power efficiency."

Featuring a DRAM-less architecture and leveraging Western Digital's in-house SSD controller design, BiCS5 3D NAND, firmware development, and vertical integration, the new SN740 NVMe SSD underscores the company's strengths in developing innovations that allow customers to unlock the potential of data.




Qualified by and shipping to key OEM customers, the new SN740 NVMe SSD features:
  • NVMe Technology: Compute faster with incredible PCIe Gen4 performance and sequential read speeds up to 5,150 MB/s1 (1 TB - 2 TB models), 50 percent higher performance compared with the prior generation SN730 SSD.
  • Thin, Light and Low Power: Save on space with a single-sided M.2 2230 and multitask more on a single charge. The SN740 offers up to 45% more time between charges compared with SN730.
  • Advanced Security Features: Improve data security with advanced security features including optional TCG Opal 2.01, TCG Pyrite 2.0 and ATA password.
  • Built-In Support: Work with extra confidence and peace of mind as the downloadable Western Digital SSD Dashboard helps monitor the drive's health, available space, temperature and more.
  • 5-Year Limited Warranty: Equipped with advanced thermal management technology that helps maintain consistent performance, this reliable drive from a trusted brand comes backed by a 5-year limited warranty.

Great, could you please release PR without click bait bullshit Western digital.

I expected AI data analysis, assisted file finding and composing with a side of brew making with this evolution of disk drives.

"Unlocks the potential of data for today's Hybrid workforces"

Looks closer and it's JUST another nvme drive.

So no AI assist or potential help on anything then , just a drive.

Thats why they added the extra BS, so you dont look closer.

Compute faster with incredible PCIe Gen4 performance and sequential read speeds up to 5,150MB/s1 (1TB - 2TB2 models), 50 percent higher performance compared with the prior generation SN730 SSD.
I sure hope its faster than the prior gen.

It just means they have NVME to the point where they can sell to HP, Lenovo and Dell to sell APU based laptops to business IT's all year long. It is obvious we have stagnated with NVME and the greed coefficient is being fully applied.
