REPORT SUMMARY AND FINAL THOUGHTS
Transfer speeds are everything when it comes to storage…no…actually transfer speeds rule your digital world whether you have ever thought about it or not. Transfer speeds have created our online instant world in every aspect. Very soon we will have USB4 being released at 20Gbps and then doubling to 40Gbps sometime in the future. 20Gbps is what we get from the WD_Black P40 on our bench right now and 40Gbps is what Thunderbolt 3/4 brings you. Everything has to do with speed!
The WD_Black P40 Game Drive Portable SSD is a great drive for gaming, given exception that we cannot do complete PS5 game streaming from portable storage just yet. It’s aluminum build is beyond reproach, transfer speeds up there at 2GB/s…remembering of course your system has to be compatible, and it has a great price tied into its 5-year warranty. Nice work WD!
