Western Digital has announced a new addition to its enterprise hard drive family. The Caviar RE2 spins at 7,200 RPM, packs 16MB of cache, and is available in 400GB capacities. Interestingly, the drive supports Native Command Queuing (NCQ), but not 300MB/sec host transfer rates. That's the opposite of Western Digital's latest desktop drive, which supports 300MB/sec host transfer rates, but lacks NCQ.
Caviar RE2 drives will ship in volume next month, and are expected to sell for $289 once they hit the street. Like the venerable Raptor, the Caviar RE2 will be covered by a five-year warranty.
