Seagate has always tried to fight for the throne of storage devices, and always tried to solve problems before they even arise, but we haven't really seen much in the way of NVMe's from them in some time. With games getting larger and larger in size, it is no surprise that loading times are getting longer and longer. Thankfully, the Seagate FireCuda 510 2TB NVMe SSD drive solves that problem, and then some.
The FireCuda is a 64-layer TLC NAND M.2 2280 PCIe x4 NVMe drive means that it built to withstand even the harshest of bending - although we wouldn't suggest you try seeing how far it can go - and competes directly with, what has been referred to as, the king of NVMe drives; the Samsung EVO 970.
The excellent and easy to navigate software [SeaTools] allows you to format, clear up, and optimise your drive for the best possible performance.
The Seagate FireCuda 510 2TB NVMe SSD offers 3,450/3,200 MB/s sequential read/writes, and while gaming won't use nearly that much, the added read/write speed does eliminate loading screens as much they can possibly be reduced. In fact, any loading times you do face, is down to the GPU trying to load and cache data rather than your drive trying to access it.
Overall, the Seagate FireCuda 510 2TB NVMe SSD is an incredibly powerful NVMe drive, and I think we can accurately say it is officially the best performing NVMe you can currently buy for gaming. All in all, the Seagate 510 2TB NVMe SSD is well-deserving of our first ever Editor's Tech Choice.
Loves games with deep character development and a rich storyline. Also, shooty-shooties. Loathes microtransactions. Likes to use sarcasm and metaphors.
