WD VelociRaptor drives offer an unmatched combination of high performance and high reliability, perfect for workstations, high end video and photo editing, low end servers and performance enthusiasts' systems. WD VelociRaptor is designed around a 10,000 RPM spin speed, these SATA 6 Gb/s drives include a 64 MB cache and deliver the ultimate performance for photo and video editing. With 1.4 million hours MTBF, these drives have the highest available reliability rating on a high capacity SATA drive. 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. With low power operation that Consumes less active and idle power than the previous generation WD VelociRaptor, while offering 66 percent more capacity and higher performance. With 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. These 2.5-inch form factor drives are built For workstations and PCs that support smaller form factor hard drives, such as all in one workstation PCs and high density video storage systems, the WD VelociRaptor is available without its signature IcePack mounting frame. Rotary Acceleration Feed Forward (RAFF) Optimizes operation and performance when the drives are used in vibration prone, multi drive chassis. With 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. In addition to being ROHS compliant, this generation of WD VelociRaptor is also a halogen free design. Now with 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.
