Seagate unveiled the newest addition to its lineup of PC gaming storage, the FireCuda 530, which offers gamers the latest PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSD technology from the company’s range of FireCuda PC gaming storage products. The new external drive promises to bring speed, endurance, and high capacity to the peak of PC performance.
Seagate also offers a minimalistic Heatsink option for FireCuda 530, specially designed by EKWB for tighter builds and enhanced thermal management.
Now available in the Philippines, the Seagate’s FireCuda 530 drives, including the Heatsink option, come with a three-year Rescue Data Recovery Service plan and a five-year limited warranty. The drive also comes bundled with Seagate’s SeaTools and DiscWizard making it easy for gamers and PC builders to add new drives to their computer and monitor the health and performance of each drive.
Delivering sequential read speeds of up to 7300 MB/s, the FireCuda 530 catalyzes PCIe Gen4 power with transfer rates up to two times faster than PCIe Gen3 SSDs and 12 times faster than SATA-based SSDs. The drive is built with a Seagate-validated E18 controller and the latest 3D TLC NAND to provide the most advanced speed and durability for PC gaming.
NVMe PCIe Gen4 extreme speeds generate extra heat. That’s why Seagate partnered with heat management firm EKWB to develop FireCuda 530’s custom Heatsink. Built from a high-grade aluminium block with a finely textured anodized finish to help maximize cooling efficiency, this built-in Heatsink helps minimize thermal throttling while maximizing peak performance for longer periods of time.
The FireCuda 530 with Heatsink is compatible with PS5 consoles and meets PS5 specs on performance and dimensions. FireCuda’s built-in Heatsink and SSD combo make for an easy drop-in expansion solution with no additional parts needed.
Available in capacities up to 4TB, the FireCuda 530 offers long-lasting endurance of 1.8M MTBF and up to 5100 TBW — meaning gamers can write and delete 70% of the drive capacity every day for 5 years.
