After a recapitulation of the technologies related to hard drives and especially by showing how the use of storage has changed after the consolidation of the cloud, Western Digital announced its new linear through a digital presentation that took place at noon on May 9, 2022.
More capacity in the cloud and faster SSD’s
To meet the demands of data consumption in the cloud, the Californian brand presented its disks Ultrastar DC HC560 with 20TB capacity, the Ultrastar DC HC570 22TB and the DC HC670 of 26TB. All of these integrate technologies that considerably improve the flow of data for the new demands of the market.
On the side of solid-state drives, they presented the Ultrastar DC ZN540 and the Ultrastar DC SN650 2.5-inch PCIe 4.0, the latter with a capacity of up to 16 TB.

This SSD will have a predictive load that seeks to reduce loading times in games, this is thanks to an included artificial intelligence that predicts and anticipates what is coming in the game.
It will also include an algorithm that allows you to manage temperatures for more stable and consistent gaming sessions. Another addition is the reengineering of its firmware that will reduce the latency of the game.
Game Mode 2.0
These SSDs can be customized through specialized software that allows monitoring temperature, capacity, performance, among others.
Soon the brand will announce the prices and availability of these units.
