WD Gold 10TB
The WD Gold follows the helium-filled design of the WD Red. Capacity is printed in bold text on the left the model, with the cache and interface to the right.
The backside of the drive houses a green PCB, with several Torx screws holding it in place.
The SATA power and data interface is lined up perfectly for hot-swap backplanes and drive trays.
A closer look at the PCB reveals the Avago controller in the center and Nanya DRAM above, to the right the Smooth branded motor driver.
WD has changed up the connectivity between the PCB and drive itself, moving from a pin system on the drive to an LGA type array.
