On last weeks Podcast Allyn spoke briefly about a new technology for platter based drives from Western Digital that allowed the reading head to have vastly increased seek times along with anti-disks to optimize the airflow that the reading head needs.  We finally get to see it in action in the Western Digital 7200RPM 2TB Caviar Black and RE4 Green Power drives.  Check out the cutting edge speeds in his full review, plus a warning about the temperatures that such performance creates.

“Caviar Black 2TB: Western Digital is really pushing the envelope with this drive. They took the track geometry improvements seen in the RE4-GP and brought them over to their performance line. They didn’t stop at a simple spindle speed increase. The introduction of their Dual Actuator technology had a noticeable impact on seek times, resulting in a truly impressive package.”
