Application Performance

WD Caviar GP: The "Green" 1 TB Drive

Drive Surface Temperature

The dynamically adjusting rotation speed also has an impact on the drive’s heat dissipation. Despite working on four platters, the WD10EACS Caviar GP only reached 41°C (105°F) after two hours of intensive operation. Bear in mind that the only drive that stayed cooler, the WD1600AAJS, is a single-platter drive from WD, the single disc causing considerably less friction.
