Default Western Digital 6Gbps Caviar Black 1TB Drive Spotted

A 1TB Western Digital hard drive with a 6Gbps Serial ATA interface has found its way into a Japanese store, and the folks at Akiba PC Hotline! were on the scene with a camera at the ready. According to their photos, the new Caviar Black drive (model number WD1002FAEX) was selling for 10,580, or just shy of $118. The retailer mentioned some specs, but we can have a more complete overview by hitting WD's Caviar Black page, where the new 6Gbps 1TB offering is already listed. The new drive has a 7,200-RPM spindle speed and 64MB of cache, twice as much as the 3Gbps SATA model.

Why? Why equip HDDs with 6Gbps interface if they don't even manage to hit 3Gbps speeds
