Western Digital prepping new VelociRaptor HDDs

Posted on Friday, April 02 2010 @ 22:32:04 CEST by

A leaked datasheet reveals Western Digital is working on a new line of VelociRaptor hard drives for enterprises. These 2.5" disks offer up to 200GB per platter and will be available in capacities of 150GB, 300GB, 450GB or 600GB. The VelociRaptors can be shipped in an optional 3.5" enclosure, but because these 10,000RPM disks have a bigger height than regular 2.5" HDDs you can't use them in laptops.

The new VelociRaptor VR200M promises sustained read speeds of 145MB/s, average read seek times of 3.6ms and average write seek time of 4.2ms. Power consumption ranges from 0.7W in sleep/standby to 4.3W in idle and up to 6.8W during sequential read/write operations.

Performance seems to be about 15 percent higher over previous generation VelociRaptor drives.

It will be interesting to see what the price of the 150GB and 300GB drives will be- vs. a 128GB or 256GB SSD.

Also be very curious to see how they fare against the new SATA3 2TB HDs with 64MB of cache...
