Western Digital did it again with the next generation Raptor hard disk drives – the VelociRaptor, 10,000 rpm, 2.5-inch, 300 GB SATA Hard Drive that are actually about 35 percent faster and twice the capacity of the previous performance king – the 150 GB Raptor X drive.

The new WD VelociRaptor hard drives are designed specifically for PC and Mac computer enthusiasts and for use in professional workstations. The WD VelociRaptor hard drives are built with enterprise-class mechanics and pack 300 GB of storage capacity into a 2.5-inch enterprise form factor. The 2.5-inch WD VelociRaptor drives are enclosed in the IcePack, a 3.5-inch mounting frame with a built-in heat sink – a customization that fits the drive into a standard 3.5-inch system bay and keeps this powerful drive extra cool when installed in a high-performance desktop chassis.

VelociRaptor Features
Killer Speed – Built on the performance of the WD Raptor, these 10,000 RPM drives, with SATA 3 Gb/s interface, and 16 MB cache deliver mind-bending performance.
Rock-solid Reliability – WD VelociRaptor drives are designed and manufactured to business-critical, enterprise-class standards to provide enterprise reliability in high duty cycle environments. The design results in the highest available reliability rating of any SATA drive at 1.4 million hours MTBF.
IcePack Mounting Frame – The 2.5-inch WD VelociRaptor drives are enclosed in a 3.5-inch enterprise-class mounting frame with a built-in heat sink that keeps this powerful little drive extra cool when installed in high-performance desktop chassis.
Rotary Acceleration Feed Forward (RAFF) – Optimizes performance when the drives are used in vibration-prone, multi-drive chassis.
SecurePark – Parks the recording heads off the disk surface during spin up, spin down and when the drive is off. This ensures the recording head never touches the disk surface, resulting in improved long-term reliability and increased drive protection when the chassis is moved.

The 300GB WD VelociRaptor is currently available for $199 USD.
