Coming in Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, and Darth Vader EKWB RGB heatsinks

Seagate has announced its new special-edition Star Wars FireCuda NVMe SSDs, coming in 1TB and 2TB capacities. These are special-edition versions of Seagate's FireCuda 530 NVMe PCIe 4 SSDs. The lightsaber-themed heatsink comes from EK Water Blocks and looks pretty cool.

Specification-wise, the FireCuda 530 NVMe PCIe 4 SSds are the fastest drives in Seagate's offer, with sequential performance peaking at 7,300MB/s for read and 6,900MB/s for write, and random 4K performance hitting 1,000,000 IOPS for both read and write (800k IOPS read for 1TB version). They have endurance ratings of 2550 and 1275 TBW or MTBF of 1,800,000 hours, as well as 5 years limited warranty.

Seagate teamed up with EK Water Blocks (EKWB or just EK) for the heatsink on new Star Wars FireCuda SSDs, and with a low-profile heatsink made from high-grade aluminum with an anodized matte finish, and RGB-illuminated lightsaber in the middle, these looks pretty impressive.

Seagate already had a few Star Wars-themed products, including HDDs, Beskar Ingot FireCuda SSDs,

Interestingly, there were a couple of Star Wars-themed custom builds and these would go great with one of those. Unfortunately, the last Star Wars-themed Jedi Order and Galactic Empire Nvidia graphics cards were Pascal-based Titan Xp, which looked pretty cool as well back in the day.

Seagate's Star Wars FireCuda NVMe SSDs will be available in 1TB and 2TB versions and both versions were already listed at for $184.99 and $289.99, respectively.
