A Closer Look
What It Holds
||upto 19 hours |
Ultra-cool operation - Consumes less idle power and uses similar active power as the previous generation WD VelociRaptor, while offering higher capacity and performance.
Advanced Format (AF) - Technology adopted by WD and other drive manufacturers as one of multiple ways to continue growing hard drive capacities. AF is a more efficient media format that enables increased areal densities.
Rotary Acceleration Feed Forward (RAFF) - Optimizes operation and performance when the drives are used in vibration-prone, multi-drive chassis.
IcePack mounting frame - The 2.5-inch hard drive is enclosed in a backplane-ready 3.5-inch mounting frame with a built-in heat sink that keeps this powerful little drive extra cool when installed in high-performance desktop chassis.
NoTouch ramp load technology - The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.
Pre-emptive Wear Leveling (PWL) - Ensures reliability for applications that perform a high incidence of read/write operations at the same physical location on the disk.
Environmentally conscious - In addition to being RoHS compliant, this generation of WD VelociRaptor also provides a halogen-free design.
Ideal for - High-performance computing, 3D rendering, digital content creation and editing, scientific computing and image management.
