Computer enthusiasts adore Raptor hard disk drives (HDDs) from Western Digital Technologies for unbeatable performance at relatively affordable cost. Unfortunately, the drives so far have not featured really large capacity. Nevertheless, WD may improve this in a few weeks when it released a new Raptor with 150GB capacity.

Germany-based online store is currently offering its clients to pre-order WD1500AD hard disk drive, hich is also known as Raptor 150GB. The new Raptor drives reportedly sport 16MB cache, feature average seek time of  4.5ms, 10 000rpm motor, support for native command queuing (NCQ) technology. The new drive also has Serial ATA-300 interface and promises to offer leading performance.

The new Raptor hard drive from WD will not only be an interesting purchase for gaming enthusiasts and workstation users, but will also be a valuable option for servers that require high performance.

The new hard disk drive will reportedly be available in January, 2006. The price for pre-order is approximately $380 (?319), which is inline with expectations.

Western Digital officials did not comment on the news-story.
