Default Western Digital Releases Thunderbolt-Equipped VelociRaptor Duo

WD’s VelociRaptor Duo packs two 1 TB 10,000 RPM drives (with RAID 0/Raid 1), and offers two Thunderbolt connectors allowing, according to WD, 400mb/s “SSD-like speeds”.

These “SSD-like speeds” are certainly impressive: WD says the VelociRaptor Duo can transfer 22 GB full-length HD movies in less than 65 seconds, 2000 5 MB pictures in less than 33 seconds and over 500 5 MB songs in less than 8 seconds
