The VelociRaptor features NoTouch ramp load technology and Rotary Acceleration Feed Forward, which optimizes performance. NoTouch ramp load technology limits wear and tear to the drive. The DATA drive is housed in an IcePack mounting frame with built-in heat sink that dissipates heat and keeps the drive cool. The VelociRaptor is ideal for performance systems, workstations and low-end servers.
The ultra-fast 6 Gb/s SATA interface speed yields performance fit for demanding desktop applications. It has a rotational speed of 10,000 RPM and a 32 MB cache
With a 600GB storage capacity for a 3.5" form factor drive, the WD VelociRaptor offers the highest capacity for space-hungry operating systems with plenty of room left over for photos, music, and video
NoTouch Ramp Load Technology
NoTouch keeps the recording heads off the disk surface during spin up, spin down, and when the drive is off. This ensures the recording head never touches the disk surface, resulting in improved long term reliability due to less head wear
Cool & Quiet
Keeping the drive cool enhances reliability. WD continues to develop better ways to keep drives cool while they are operating which helps protect the drive and the data stored on it
Rotary Acceleration Feed Forward
This optimizes operation and performance when the drives are used in vibration prone, multi-drive chassis
In addition to being ROHS compliant, this generation of WD VelociRaptor is also a halogen free design
