WD Caviar 320GB HDD now available

Posted on Wednesday, January 23 2008 @ 00:10:16 CET by

Western Digital announced today that it is now shipping in volume its WD Caviar family of 3.5-inch hard drives based on 320 GB-per-platter technology, the same industry-leading storage areal density that the company has been shipping in its 160 GB-per-platter (320 GB capacity) 2.5-inch WD Scorpio drives since October 2007.

"Our technology investments and product roadmap execution have resulted in WD shipping the industry's highest areal densities in the industry's two highest volume markets," said Hossein Moghadam, chief technology officer of WD. "Our 250 gigabits-per-square-inch technology already has been reliably serving our 2.5-inch customers, and now it will benefit customers in the 3.5 inch desktop and other product areas."

An initial WD Caviar capacity point of 320 GB is available immediately. The 320 GB-per-platter technology will be deployed across WD's desktop, enterprise, CE and external hard drive product lines, including additional capacity points, throughout this calendar year.

The WD Caviar family of 3.5-inch desktop hard drives delivers high performance with 300 MB/s transfer rate, cache sizes up to 16 MB, Native Command Queuing (NCQ), and cool operating temperatures and quiet operation, enabling customers to integrate WD products in the most demanding desktop and external storage environments.

Dead WD

We need a 320gb Raptor please. And when you can spare a few months, could you bring us laptop drives @ 7200rpm as well?

Thank you :)
