WD reportedly shipping HDDs with 667GB platters

Posted on Friday, May 28 2010 @ 19:44:21 CEST by

BeHardware reports Western Digital started shipping a new Caviar Green 2TB HDD that uses 667GB platters.
It seems that there have been more significant changes however with various Japanese stores announcing that the drive has 667 GB platters! This is important as it means there’ll only be 3 rather than 4 platters. Without actually seeing one of the drives in the flesh as it were, it’s difficult to confirm this but on the Sisoftware site you can see a first bench with average read speeds of 89.9 MB/s compared with 83 to 84 MB/s on the previous version, which seems to confirm the new densities.
