Twice the processing power to maximize performance
WD's dynamic caching algorithm improves performance in real time by optimizing cache allocation between reads and writes. For example, if there is an overwhelming percentage of read traffic as opposed to write traffic, the drive automatically allocates more cache for read data, which reduces congestion and improves overall drive performance.
Available SATA 6 Gb/s Interface
The SATA 6 Gb/s interface provides backwards compatibility to legacy systems with SATA 3 Gb/s requirements.
NoTouch Ramp Load Technology
The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.
Tested for Compatibility
Tests are performed on hundreds of systems and platforms in the FIT Lab to check that this drive will work in any system.
