Seagate has announced the launch of its newest PC gaming SSD, the FireCuda 530. This SSD delivers high speed and delivers the fastest performance from Seagate’s PC gaming storage portfolio.
The Seagate FireCuda 530 offers the latest PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSD technology which delivers sequential read speeds of up to 7300 MB/s, and transfer rates up to two times faster than the PCIe Gen3 SSDs and 12 times faster than SATA-based SSDs. This is a commendable feat of the device. Additionally, the drive is built with a Seagate-validated E18 controller along with the latest 3D TLC NAND to deliver high speed and durability for PC gaming loads. The minimalistic heatsink option, which is specially designed by EKWB, utilises a high-grade aluminium block with a finely textured finish, instead of cooling fins, in order to maximise cooling.
The FireCuda 530 can write and delete 70% of the drive’s storage capacity ‘every day for 5 years’ through its 1.8M MTBF and offering up to 5100 TBW. The FireCuda 530 also comes with a 3-year Rescue Data Recovery Service plan ad a 5-year limited warranty. It also comes bundled with Seagate’s SeaTools and DiscWizard which makes it easy for gamers and PC builders to add new drives to their computer and oversee the health and performance of each drive.
“This is Seagate’s fastest and most powerful gaming SSD and we’re showcasing it at our first-ever virtual gaming event to put a stake in the ground,” said Jeff Fochtman, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Seagate Technology. “From the FireCuda 530, to our lineup of partners and guests at SG21, we’re here to take it all to the next level.”
Seagate’s FireCuda 530 is now available in India through authorised reseller partners and will be put up for sale on Amazon, too. The FireCuda 530 is priced at INR10,999 for 500GB, INR 18,999 for 1TB, and INR 38,499 for 2TB. FireCuda 530 with the heatsink will be offered by end of September on all authorized reseller partners and Amazon for INR 12,999 (500GGB), INR 20,999 (1TB), and INR 39,999 (2TB).
