Default Western Digital Working On a 20.000 RPM Drive

The new drive will be very similar to the recently-released VelociRaptor, in that itíll be a 2.5in drive with a custom 3.5in housing built around it. Details are incredibly light at this stage, given that the product is still in development, and we donít even have a release timeframe at the moment.

However, our sources said that the drive will be Ďsilentí Ė thatís the last thing I would have expected from a drive with platters spinning at 20,000 RPM. Western Digital is apparently working on silencing the beast by improving the housing technology, which will now not just act as a heatsink, but also as a noise cancelling device. Weíd also hope that the drive enclosure has some vibration dampening technology as well, because thatís also likely to be a problem given the high spindle speeds.

It makes me think about the Intel in it's P4 era ... continuously increasing the frequency to increase the performance ... so I am waiting for a 50k rpm drive
