Seagate FireCuda 530 drives

Seagate’s FireCuda 530 drives come with a three-year Rescue Data Recovery Service plan and a five-year limited warranty. This would give gamers a peace of mind knowing their data is secure. The new Seagate FireCuda 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.

Seagate FireCuda 530 Heatsink Option

NVMe PCIe Gen4 extreme speeds generate extra heat. That’s why Seagate partnered with EKWB — a leader in heat management — to develop FireCuda 530’s custom heatsink. Built from a high-grade aluminium block with a finely textured anodized finish to help maximise cooling efficiency, this built-in heatsink helps minimise thermal throttling while maximising 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 makes for an easy drop-in expansion solution with no additional parts needed.
