[Amazon.ca] WD_BLACK 1TB SN750 SE NVMe SSD with Battlefield 2042 Game Code Bundle - $199.99 (temp OOS)

Decent deal if you are in the Market for BF 2042... I might cancel my game pre-order and purchase this instead.

This is a DRAMless SSD
"The new WD Black SN750 SE is not just a refresh of their existing SN750 but instead appears to be an entirely new and different drive. The SN750 SE brings PCIe Gen4 support but in other respects seems to be a downgrade compared to the SN750, and appears to have more in common with the WD Blue SN550."

"SN750 SE looks like a 4-channel DRAMless NVMe SSD"
from https://www.anandtech.com/show/16700/we ... -pcie-gen4
So while the original SN750 (a PCIe 3.0 drive) offers read speeds of 3,400MB/s and the SN850 (PCIe 4.0) can hit 7,000MB/s, the new SN750 SE (PCIe 4.0) offers a fairly mundane speed bump over the original of just 3,600MB/s. It's also available in small capacities—250GB, 500GB, and 1TB.

Western Digital is using a Phison controller for the new SN750 SE drives and they're DRAM-less too, like the Samsung 980 (non-Pro version), to try and keep prices down. They also only use one side of the PCB in order to run cooler than either the SN750 or the SN850.

This is a terrible price for a dissatisfying SSD.

Respect to OP.
Isn't too bad of a price if you factor in the $80 game.

The Price on the SSD once you factor in the BF MSRP isn't bad. The downvotes are going to come from the fact that EA treats people who pre-order like crap and will bait and switch.

The SSD is still one of the best performers for a PCI-E 3.0 Drive and the ATL was what 149.99? You're paying $50 for BF but EA has been known to screw people over.

EDIT: NVM this is the SN750-SE the SE is like a beefed up SN550 that supports PCI-E4. Sorry guys.

Hmm, so then this could arguably be better for using in hot laptop?

I decided not to order, and I will just keep my pre-order AS IS.
