WD Red 6TB HDD
Here we have our first look at the WD Red 6TB. Capacity is listed at the top next to the model number and 64MB cache designation.
The drives SATA power and data connectors are lined up correctly, so there should be no issues with hot swap trays.
Here we look at the drive with the PCB removed. The WD Red 6TB uses a new design where part of the connections are housed under or inside the platter tray.
Above, we have the PCB removed from the drive where we get a look at the Marvell controller in the center, followed by 64MB of Winbond DRAM for the cache and WD Pike motor driver.
