For reasons I cannot fathom and that are probably lost to the bowels of their marketing department, Western Digital have decided their high-performance Black line of NVMe SSDs were in need of a face lift for 2019, because apparently gum stick-sized storage drives don't look 'gamer-y' enough already. The result of their somewhat baffling nip and tuck is the Black SN750, which I think you'll agree looks exactly the same as last year's Black NVMe SSD albeit with a slightly different sticker on the front.
Or at least that's true of the regular version of the Black SN750, as there's also going to be a special heatsink edition available sometime next month. That one does look a bit more upmarket and 'gamer-y', if such a thing is possible, but that's not the one I've been sent for review. Instead, you'll have to make do with wot I think of the normal Black SN750 for now. Can it beat our best gaming SSD champion, the Samsung 970 Evo? Let's take a look.
