WD Expands Performance-Level Desktop Hard Drives to 6TB Capacity

Shipping now, the 3.5-inch, 7200 RPM drives target gamers and professionals in need of high-performance desktop systems and workstations.

Hard disk drive manufacturer WD has expanded its WD Black line of performance hard drives up to 6TB capacity.

WD Black 3.5-inch hard drives combine 7200 RPM spin speed, 128 MB cache, dual stage actuator technology, SATA 6 gigabits per second (Gb/s) interface, and an integrated dual processor to offer ultimate performance in a maximum-capacity drive. The WD Black 6TB is up to 29 percent faster than the previous WD Black 4TB version in maximum data rate throughput and 10 percent faster in PCMark Vantage.

“Combining maximum system performance with generous capacity, the expansion of WD Black to 6 TB allows gamers, enthusiasts, and creatives to push the boundaries of personalization without compromise,” says Cindi Grace, senior vice president of WD storage technology group. “In choosing WD Black hard drives, WD desktop customers get the best possible mix of capacity, performance and reliability to handle intense desktop computing with ease.”

WD Black 6TB hard drives feature:

  • Increased Reliability – StableTrac Technology (2TB and larger models) secures the motor shaft inside of the hard drive to increase reliability and help reduce impact due to system-induced vibrations from other components.
  • Increased DRAM cache – The Dynamic Cache Technology improves caching algorithms in real time to allocate and optimize cache between reads and writes.
  • Efficient dual processing – A dual-core processor offers twice the processing capability as a single-core processor to maximize drive performance for faster read and write speeds.

Available now through select distributors and resellers, WD Black drives are covered by a five-year limited warranty. MSRP for the WD Black 5TB drive (model # WD5001FZWX) is $264.00 and the WD Black 6TB drive (model # WD6001FZWX) is $294.00.
