WD® expands its performance level to desktop hard drives to 6 TB capacity

    WD, a Western Digital (NASDAQ: WDC) company and a world leader in hard drives, today announced the expansion of its award-winning WD Black™ line of performance hard drives up to 6 TB capacity. Shipping now, the 3.5-inch, 7200 RPM drive is the perfect solution for gamers and professionals in need of high-performance desktop systems and workstations.

    WD Black hard drives combine 7200 RPM spin speed, 128 MB cache, dual stage actuator echnology,
SATA 6 gigabits per second (Gb/s) interface, and an integrated dual processor to deliver ultimate
performance in a maximum-capacity drive. The WD Black 6 TB is up to 29% faster than the previous WD Black 4 TB version in maximum data rate throughput and 10% faster in PCMark Vantage.

     “Combining maximum system performance with generous capacity, the expansion of WD Black to 6 TB allows gamers, enthusiasts and creatives to push the boundaries of personalization without
compromise,” said Cindi Grace, senior vice president of WD storage technology group. “In choosing WD Black hard drives, WD desktop customers get the best possible mix of capacity, performance and reliability to handle intense desktop computing with ease.”

WD Black 6 TB hard drives feature the following:

     Increased Reliability –StableTrac™ Technology (2 TB and larger models) secures the motorshaft inside of the hard drive to increase reliability and help reduce impact due to system-induced vibrations from other components. By stabilizing the platters inside, the WD Black drive results in more accurate tracking in a particular sector during read and write operations, optimizing  performance andreliability.

     Increased DRAM cache– The Dynamic Cache Technology improves caching algorithms in real
time to allocate and optimize cache between reads and writes. This movement of cache for read data
helps to reduce congestion and increase overall performance.

     Efficient dual processing– A dual-core processor offers twice the processing capability as a
single-core processor to maximize drive performance for faster read and write speeds.

      Industry-leading 5-year limited warranty– Compared to standard hard drives, the WD Black
drive endures more strenuous and aggressive internal testing over a longer period of time, resulting in
it being backed by an industry leading 5-year limited warranty.
