    A quick look in the WD store, SN570 are coming in cheaper than the slower SN550, albeit they are marked as out of stock.

    I do wonder what controller it will have and what speeds it chucks out...

    Re: WD Blue SN570 NVMe SSDs for creators launched

    Hi,
    If I'm not a creator, can I use this ssd? Is the term, 'creators' simply a marketing buzz word used to sell the exact same items that we have anyway? If I am a creator, should I go for a Samsung Pro SSD instead, which would offer me increased performance which 'might' actually assist with video editing etc?

    Re: WD Blue SN570 NVMe SSDs for creators launched

    Add me to the list of those very interested in how this compares to the likes of the SN550

    /Optimistic hat on
    Maybe 'creators' implies better sustained write speeds vs the new version of the SN550? The larger number should = better right?
    The stated sequential numbers look better than the SN550 anyway.

    Here's hoping it's the proper replacement for the much-liked original SN550?

    Edit: Some more bits of information at anandtech, notably:
    We did obtain confirmation that these drives are set to be equipped with 3D TLC over their complete lifetime, and will not move to QLC.
    Which is something. That's not necessarily a guarantee that speeds couldn't drop with, say, a switch to lower plane-count NAND, but it's more of a guarantee than we usually see.

    Or, more specifically, what controller (and flash) it uses at launch - and later what controller and flash they replace it with later to drop the cost.

    Or am I being too cynical?

    It amazes me that that needs to be added as a guarantee as if it's some kind of selling point.

    Re: WD Blue SN570 NVMe SSDs for creators launched

    As a 'creator' (I do actually create stuff for a living....) this being targetted at 'creators' is a complete load of rubbish, WD blue drives are the basic consumer drives which are fine for the generic home user but for someone who does actually create things we'd be looking a little high up the ladder. I also like to know IOPS, something that is missing from everything I've found about them so far... funny that.

    Oh how I love how the 'creative' trades are being treated....first it's expectation of free photoshop work because 'everyone' has a copy of it, now even those without it are being called creators.....

    Companies always need someone they can refer to to sell consumer stuff that isn't low end. It used to be "Ideal for CAD users", then "Power Users". I guess this is just to get people to think "If it is good enough for them, it will work for me".

    What I want is consistent write speeds over large file copies and decent TBW.

    Re: WD Blue SN570 NVMe SSDs for creators launched

    Oh alas I'm not a creator so can't use this

    I wonder what even makes that title , you caould use photoshop and make works of art and be more than happy with slow speeds, yet editing video etc you need more speed.

    I wish they would stop making idiot buz words for classes.

    Or if they are using lifestyle at least be consistant.

    They could call the SN350 "For people throwing their lives away on Candy Crush".
