all i could find:

Quote:
37 GB Platters - the aggregate areal density of the new Raptor will remain the same as the first. Linear density, however, has been increased, to achieve:
  • <LI I3lnS="0" SCBIH="0">72 MB/sec outer-zone transfer rates - though STR remains non-consequential in the large majority of uses, some folks were disappointed with the 55 MB/sec that the first Raptor delivered. WD is confident enough with new yields to spec a transfer rate that rivals the best available from today's disks.
  • 4.5 millisecond seek time - the Raptor WD360GD specs at 5.2 milliseconds.
