General Features

For Creative Professionals
When it comes to storing your creativity and digital portfolio, WD Black drives can be used to store large multimedia files that contain photos, videos, games, or applications and programs. With a WD Black drive, you get a combination of speed, capacity, and large cache sizes.
For Gamers
WD Black drives are also well-suited for gaming machines by offering large capacities to store a game's downloadable content (DLC) and large cache sizes, as well as helping to further maximize system performance when paired with an SSD. WD Black drives also include StableTrac technology for more accurate data tracking and to help reduce any impact due to vibrations for additional gaming hardware.
Increased Reliability
This WD Black drive is equipped with StableTrack technology by securing the motor shaft inside to increase stability and help reduce impact due to system-induced vibrations from other components. By stabilizing the platters inside, the drive is more accurate in tracking particular sectors during read and write operations, optimizing performance and reliability.
Increased DRAM Cache
This WD Black drive delivers high transfer speeds and read rates of your files with a 64MB DRAM cache. WD's Dynamic Cache technology improves caching algorithms in real time to allocate and optimize the cache between reads and writes. This movement of cache for read data helps to reduce congestion and increase overall performance.
Dual Processing
When it comes to processing power, more is always better, especially for loading games and large multimedia files. This WD Black drive features a dual-core processor that offers increased processing capabilities as compared to a single-core processor, helping to maximize drive performance for faster read and write speeds.
