A German-based retail site recently posted up a listing for a WD Blue SSD with a whopping 4TB capacity. It’s a surprising discovery, considering that WD itself has yet to officially acknowledge the existence of the new SSD and its heaping capacity.
For context, the current WD Blue SSD lineup only lists a maximum storage configuration of 2TB, while the lowest configuration is capped at 250GB. The lineup uses a TLC 3D NAND flash, along with a Marvell 88SS1074 controller. Speed-wise, you’re looking at a sequential read and write speed of up to 560MB/s and 532MB/s, respectively.
As you would expect, owning an SSD with a 4TB storage capacity isn’t going to be cheap. The German site – known as Geizhals – lists down the component’s retail price between US$614 (~RM2568) and US$644 (~RM2663).
At the time of writing, it is unknown when WD Malaysia will be bringing in the 4TB WD Blue SSD, or even if it has any intention to do so.
