Just a quick note, I must have been mistaken in my previous post. After looking again using the same search query, I failed to locate the previously mentioned HDD. It may exist, then again, it may not. I'm going to purchase a couple myself if I find it again and it is what I mentioned before. 500Gb, internal 3.5" SATA 15000Rpm HDD. But it looks like the only drives that speed are all SCSI (also came up with SAS, which as I understand is Serial Attached SCSI).

Good Luck to anybody else who wants one, I hope you find it also.

I also found an article on these speed drives. IBM actually has one available, 500Gb. Do a search for        IBM 39M4514 500Gb 15000Rpm, or just go to http://www.myshopping.com.au  they are SATA drives by the look of the description and will set you back around $700-$800. Unfortunately, for those who want a SATA drive, that's the only one I found, the rest seem to be of SCSI breed. Hope this helps.

Is WD planning to make them in a smaller capacity?

300GB is really too big for a boot drive and too small for media storage (for me, anyway)

It would be nice to update my 5-year-old Raptor with a modernized, speedier version around the same capacity.

Wow, this is really exciting I can't wait to see these things in person.

Also, the fact they're named velocaraptors is brilliant.

HDTach is a synthetic benchmark that doesn't reflect real-world performance with a drive. Granted, neither is PCMark05, technically. However, its scripts are based on real-world application traces, making it far more useful to determine a drive's actual, as-working-in-your-system performance capabilities.

Can you test 4 of these with that Adaptec Raid controller?

i wonder why they weren't going with 32mb cache?

Well this is a new hard drive. This is just a guess. They probably used the hard drive controller board off of an older hard drive. This is done all the time. No need to reinvent the wheel if you have one that works just fine.
Perhaps as the hard drive matures they will customize it more for better performance. More cache and instructions. Like they do for their other HDD's.

The last graph it labeled "Specs" and some of the bolding is wrong. Just FYI

Awsome.
I thought I saw somewhere lastnight on the net somewhere there was an Enterprise class HDD that has a 400+gig capacity and speeds along at 15000RPMs. I think it was SATA. I did'nt read the entire article but a google search should bring it up. 15000RPM's just turns me on. Really it floats my boat.

Actually I found the article and here is the URL made tiny as it's huge http://tinyurl.com/3kplgb
Here is the Headline quoted "New Hitachi High-Speed Drives Hit 450GB" And it is SCSI. Oh well.
