Western Digital PC SN5000S NVMe SSD 2TB QLC NAND

The PC SN5000S NVMe SSD, the company's latest drive, uses slow QLC NAND memory but is 16.5% faster in reads and 15.5% faster in writes than the TLC-based SN740

The Western Digital PC SN5000S NVMe SSD is a high-performance, affordable storage option for common PCs. Its cutting-edge technology ensures reliability and performance for demanding workloads

Utilize nCache 4.0 dynamic SLC technology to transfer data seamlessly, and use a dedicated boot partition to help safeguard your most important data

To better protect your data, use the self-encrypted version made using TCG Opal 2.02. This device complies with Project Athena and offers capacities ranging from 512GB to 2TB in both the M.2 2280 and M.2 2230 form factors

The SN5000S’s advantage narrows to a still admirable 14.3% while the SN740 1TB writes a little bit quicker

Get more reliable and cost-effective QLC without having to compromise on any one of the two. In terms of performance, QLC NAND is fundamentally inferior to other forms of NAND

More performance and durability are often associated with fewer bits, with SLC storing one bit per cell, MLC storing two, and TLC using three
