SSD WD Black + Battlefield 2042, an interesting combination

Western Digital has announced the launch of a bundle that includes the solid state drive WD Black SN750 SE NVMe and the video game Battlefield 2042 to be distributed by Electronic Arts in October. If you plan to buy the new DICE game and at the same time you need to buy a good level SSD, this package may be of interest to you.

You already know that the benefits of SSD have allowed storage to cease to be the bottleneck of a computer equipment as it was the case with hard drives and today there is no self-respecting gaming PC that does not use this type of units, preferably connected to the PCI-Express interface.

The WD Black SN750 SE is one of the best SSD on the market over PCIe 3.0. An update to this version that we had the opportunity to analyze and that uses memory from Toshiba (today Kioxia), additional DRAM from SK Hynix and a WD own driver to offer data transfers at sequential read speeds up to 3,600 Mbytes per second. The goal is for users to have “less loading times and more time to play and stream,” they say from WD.

As for Battlefield 2042, it’s the new installment of the war action saga in the first person and as its name indicates, for the second time he abandons the historical theme to place himself in a dystopian future that takes us to the battlefields of the Third World War.

SSD WD Black + Battlefield 2042

WD_BLACK SN750 SE NVMe SSD Battlefield 2042 PC Game Code Bundle, as this bundle is called, includes:

1 Battlefield-themed WD_BLACK SN750 SE NVMe SSD. 1 code for the full Battlefield 2042 Standard Edition PC game (available for download with code starting October 22, 2021). Access to new content when pre-booking, including the game itself, by using the code for PC before the availability of the game.

The package will be available in Europe and the United States in two storage capacities and at the following prices:

500 Gbytes: 135.99 euros
1 Tbyte: 229.99 euros

Not bad considering that the price of this triple-A will be high and the high level of the SSD. Of course, beyond the collaboration agreement between WD and EA to create this limited edition, you can play Battlefield 2042 with solid state drives from any other manufacturer. And there is a lot to choose from as you can see in our SSD guide.
