WD logoWD and SanDisk are joining forces for new ultra-thin WD hybrid drives.

SanDisk is supplying its iSSD storage device for the 2.4" WD Black solid state hybrid drive (SSHD).

Designed primarily for ultra-thin notebooks, the WD Black 5mm SSHD offers 500 GB of capacity, while using almost 50 percent less volume than current standard (approximately 9.5mm) notebook hard drives.

The SanDisk iSSD is built on 19 nanometer (nm) process technology, which provides a very slim form factor to match WD’s drive.

WD Black 5mm SSHDs are shipping to OEMs now.
