Western Digital announced last week that their fastest 10,000 RPM SATA HD, VelociRaptor is now available in 600GB and is already out in the market. It is the only 10,000 RPM SATA HD on the market today and is a favorite among enthusiasts and enterprise groups. The new WD VelociRaptor hard drive is designed for blade servers, high-performance PCs, Mac® computers, professional workstations, as well as 1U and 2U rack servers that require a balance of high performance and capacity. It is also important to note that this new generation has a 15% performance increase than previous ones.
You can still choose to use it with the IcePack mounting frame which is a backplane-ready 3.5-inch enterprise-class enclosure with a built-in heat sink that keeps this powerful little drive extra cool when installed in high-performance desktop chassis.
The WD VelociRaptor is now available in 600GB (WD6000HLHX) and 450GB (WD4500HLHX) capacities. These drives already come with the IcePack. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for the WD VelociRaptor 450 GB is Php13,754.00 and the 600 GB is Php 15,134.00.
