For Gamers - The WD Black drive is the perfect storage solution for your gaming machine by offering large capacities to store your game's downloadable content (DLC), larger cache sizes, and is the perfect compliment for maximum system performance when combined with an SSD. The WD Black drive also includes StableTracTM Technology (2 TB and larger models) for more accurate data tracking due to vibrations from additional gaming hardware. The WD Black drive also offers a 5-year limited warranty to match or beat your other gaming hardware warranties.
Increased Reliability - The WD Black drive is equipped with StableTrac Technology (2 TB and larger models) by securing the motor shaft inside to increase reliability and help reduce impact due to system-induced vibrations from other components. By stabilizing the platters inside, the WD Black drive results in more accurate tracking in a particular sector during read and write operations, optimizing performance and reliability.
Increased DRAM cache - The WD Black drive delivers high-speed transfer and read rates of your files with impressive cache sizes of up to 128 MB of DRAM on our high capacity models. WD's Dynamic Cache Technology improves caching algorithms in real time to allocate and optimize cache between reads and writes. This movement of cache for read data helps to reduce congestion and increase overall performance.
Efficient dual processing - When it comes to processing power, more is always better especially for loading games or large multimedia files. The WD Black drive features a dual-core processor that offers twice the processing capability as a single-core processor to maximize drive performance for faster read and write speeds.
Industry-leading 5-year limited warranty - Compared to standard hard drives such as WD BlueTM, our WD Black hard drives pass more strenuous and aggressive internal testing over a longer period of time which is why the WD Black drive is backed by an industry leading 5-year warranty.
