In a message posted on its own web site US hard drive maker Western Digital has announced the availability of the company’s first 4 TB Caviar Black hard drives.

The new 4 TB Black drives arrive in the usual 3.5-inch form factor and as before are best suited for gamers, enthusiasts and users who seek the best hard drive performance out there. The new product offers a rotational speed of 7200 rpm and 64 MB of cache and uses SATA 3.0 interface. In addition the spacious hard drives offer two internal processors for increased performance.
