Rotation speed of 10,000 rpm the "bomb" parameter so far never seen on an IDE / ATA hard disk (this is a Serial ATA type).

Western Digital seems to have succeeded, it is the first model in the series that reaches the market, will be on sale within the month.

The spread of IDE disks is already wide but with this technological breakthrough it promises to outclass the more expensive SCSI (over 30% more), with data of absolute interest: 5.2 ms of search time, 150 MB per second on interface ESATA – Enterprise Serial ATA, 8 MB cache, five years warranty and 1.2 million hours MTBS – Mean Time Between Failure.

The cut of the WD Raptor 360GD model will initially be 36.7 GB.
