While it tries to craft a microwave-assisted 40TB hard drive by 2025, Western Digital is releasing storage solutions for the nearer future. The company introduced the Black 3D NVMe, an SSD designed to run 4K and Ultra HD graphics quickly and seamlessly, which should suit gamers and high-end video producers.

The Black 3D NVMe comes in 250GB, 500GB and 1TB sizes, but it's at the top of the line that you'll see the fastest speeds. The upper two models offer up to 3,400 MB/s reading while the one terabyte achieves 2,800 MB/s write speed and 500,000 random-read IOPs for multi-threaded applications.

The 250GB, 500GB and 1TB models will retail for $120, $230 and $450, respectively. They will be available by late April in select Western Digital physical and online retailers and other distributors.
