This weeks sponsor has worked tirelessly for years to provide the best in high speed data storage solutions for both gamers and consumers alike.

History

Western Digital got its start back in the early 70's as a manufacturer of calculator chips, eventually becoming the largest independent manufacturer of the chips in the world. They would continue on to make chips and processors for a multitude of purposes until they entered the data storage market in the early 80's. It was during this time that Western Digital would set its legacy as one of the worlds leading hard drive manufacturers. Their contract with IBM at the time to produce hard drive controllers for their systems was monumental in helping Western Digital go forward as a powerful force in the data storage industry.

Western Digital would go on to make many innovations through the years, and worked hard to push data storage to the next level with each passing generation. Products such as the 10,000 RPM Raptor drive would become the go to drives for gamers looking for every advantage they could get in their system. Western Digital continues to push technology forward as they expand into solid state technology and beyond.
