From The Inquirer:

HARD DRIVE MANUFACTURER Western Digital has, in what some may conjecture is the final roll of the dice for traditional hard drives, launched two larger models in its Velociraptor like.

These models offer 450GB and 600GB capacities thanks to increased areal density of 200GB per platter. Because these are Velociraptor drives, those platters spin at 10,000RPM which, shockingly, after a decade still remains the highest rotational speed in ATA drives. WD decided it was time to support the 6Gbps SATA3 standard and will produce both drives with 32MB cache.
