Western Digital VelociRaptor 600GB SATA 6GB 10000rpm 2.5in. Internal Hard Drive
WD VelociRaptor hard drive delivers maximum speed and reliability for performance enthusiast systems, workstations, and low-end servers. With a superbly engineered combination of 10,000RPM spin speed, SATA 6Gbps interface and a 32MB cache, this drive is truly an evolution in performance.
Designed around a 10,000RPM spin speed, these SATA 6Gbps drives include a 64MB cache and deliver the ultimate performance for photo and video editing.
State-of-the-art technology delivers a balance of high performance and high capacity perfect for data-intensive workloads that require large amounts of storage such as video editing, 3D rendering and scientific modeling.
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.
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.
In addition to being RoHS compliant, this generation of WD VelociRaptor also provides a halogen-free design.
High-performance computing, 3D rendering, digital content creation and editing, scientific computing and image management.
