Western Digital ships hybrid drive sporting SanDisk memory

Western Digital has released new information about its first hybrid drive, revealing that it is using NAND flash technology from SanDisk. The drive is now shipping.

WD originally announced the solid-state hybrid drive (SSHD)—the WD Black SSHD—last month along with its thinnest hard disk drive to date, the WD Blue.

Hybrid drives use a small amount of NAND flash memory to accelerate performance in combination with a traditional hard disk drive for added storage.

In the partnership, SanDisk will supply its iSSD NAND flash and WD will offer up its WD Black hard drive to create the SSHD. The drive uses a 6Gbps SATA interface.
