WD is to collaborate with SanDisk to produce its new range of SSHD devices.

The leading storage vendors have announced they will team up in order to produce the WD Black branded solid-state hybrid drives.

WD says its SSHD devices take up nearly 50 per cent less volume than traditional laptop storage devices as a result of the small size of SanDisk's iSSD, which is produced using 19-nanometer process technology.

SanDisk is set to supply the brand's own iSSD storage device for the WD Black SSHD, which will offer 32GB of iSSD storage, whilst offering a total of 500GB made up of both iSSD and platter-based storage.

The WD Black measures in at just 5mm thick and sports a standard SATA3 connection, whilst retaining the 2.5-inch traditional laptop design. In addition to the 5mm device, the Black range also offers both 7mm and 9.5mm editions.
