While SSDs are becoming more and more popular, high capacity businesses are still eager to opt for standard HDDs. Western Digital has just announced two new models of WD Black 5 and 6 TB drives designed for high-performance desktops and workstations.
The new drives run at 7200 RPM, feature SATA 6 Gb / s interface, 128 MB cache memory, as well as a two-level servo drive. For maximum performance, the manufacturer also installed integrated dual processors that provide significantly more computing power, thus speeding up read and write operations. The WD Black 6 TB drive is 29% faster than the previous version of the WD Black 4 TB, and the maximum data throughput is 10 percent higher.
New disks thanks to its high capacity and performance are suitable for gamers, graphic designers, and workstations.
