Western Digital claims that making low-power technologies one of its fastest-growing segments and WD Caviar Green one of the most successful new products in the company’s recent history.

As well as offering up to 20 percent less power, the new units offer a 10 percent increase in performance over the previous version , claims WD, while continuing to provide the market with hard drives enabling quieter and cooler-running desktop PCs and external storage devices.

Technologies used in the new hard drives include:

  • IntelliPower – A fine-tuned balance of spin speed, transfer rate and caching algorithms designed to deliver both significant power savings and solid performance. Additionally, GreenPower drives consume less current during startup allowing lower peak loads on systems as they are booted.
  • IntelliSeek – Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise, and vibration.
  • NoTouch ramp load technology – Designed to ensure the recording head never touches the disk media, resulting in less wear to the recording head and media, as well as better drive protection in transit.
