From photographers to graphic designers to software developers, people are increasingly dependent on their computers to manage their workflow, and any extra lag or load times can lead to increased stress and decreased productivity. Juggling many workload demands, today’s creative professionals need technology that empowers their creativity.
Western Digital’s new WD Blue™ SN570 NVMe™ SSD internal flash drive was purpose-built for creatives and offers a powerful solution for upgrading current PCs or optimizing a custom build. This new drive helps eliminate bottlenecks by enhancing their computing system.

When dealing with huge amounts of data — in running heavy workload programs, organizing, transferring and editing a large set of high-resolution photos and videos, for example — it is important to use storage solutions that are both fast and reliable in order to have an efficient workflow, as well as peace of mind.
After all, who wants their creativity in “the zone” interrupted by slow storage speeds or lost files?
That’s where the WD Blue SN570 NVME SSD comes in, and shines — it’s a powerful internal drive that boasts up to 5 times the speed of Western Digital’s top SATA SSDs. It’s the perfect solution for both upgrading your current PC or achieving optimal performance in a new custom build.
“Complex workloads require high performance and reliability, and the right type of storage can help streamline workflows and increase productivity,” says Eric Spanneut, vice president of Client and Enterprise SSDs for Western Digital’s Flash Business unit. “Our new WD Blue SN570 NVMe SSD is built with creators in mind, providing fast speeds, data protection options, and endurance to support their creative vision.”
Let’s take a closer look at the WD Blue SN570 drive’s features and specifications.
NVMe technology allows the WD Blue SN570 to offer fast speed while consuming low amounts of power. It can reach read speeds of up to 3,500MB/s (in the 500GB and 1TB models)*.
The slim form factor of the SSD — it’s a single-sided M.2 2280 PCIe® Gen3x4 NVMe SSD — allows you to save on space and use the WD Blue SN570 in both desktops and laptops.
