Western Digital releases their first SATA Solid State Drives
The initial launch of Western Digital branded SSDs will be limited and the company will be offering these SSDs in two version. The Western Digital Blue SSDs are high performance drives (upto 545MB/s read and 525MB/s write speeds) that goes up to 1TB in size while the Western Digital Green is the low powered option (upto 540MB/s read and 405MB/s write speeds) with capacities of up to 240GB.
Both variants are just normal SATA based SSDs and they both come in the form of a 2.5mm enclosure and a M.2 form factor. The WD Blue SSDs will begin at US$79 (~MYR 330) and the price for the WD Green SSDs will be revealed when it gets launched later this year.
