Western Digital has announced a new high-capacity hard drive that slots into its existing Black series lineup.

The drive is a 3.5-inch form factor and spins at a speedy 7200 RPM, and is designed for desktop computers. It has a 64 MB cache and uses the SATA 6Gb/s interface.
Western Digital also fits the drive with a bunch of technology to help reduce power consumption and extend its usable life. It offers dual processors for twice the processing power, dual actuator technology, and NoTouch ramp technology to extend the life of the drive. Western Digital also covers the drive with a five-year limited warranty.
