Wonders of WD Green

MANILA, Philippines—WD, the world’s leading provider of excellent computer storage solutions, hosted its first ever gaming tournament for the Philippine tech press on March 6 at Imperium e-Sports Bar and Video Game Lounge in Metrowalk Commercial Complex, Pasig City.

Dubbed “WD Gamers Cup: WD X Imperium Media LAN Party,” the gaming event marked the exquisite collaboration of WD with Metro Manila’s most popular and chicest Internet bar, Imperium. The LAN party featured the country’s most celebrated gaming and technology bloggers and technology media members as gaming competitors, giving them interactive and first-hand experience of the overall reliability of one of WD’s top-of-the-line hard drive lines, WD Green.


“WD Gamers Cup, in collaboration with Imperium e-Sports Bar and Video Lounge, is a perfect platform to not only engage and celebrate the country’s top technology influencers in a friendly Counter Strike match, but to also inform them of the outstanding features of WD Green,” said Charlotte Koa, WD Philippines country sales manager.


Wonders of WD Green

From WD’s Power of Choice line, WD Green hard drive takes pride in its eco-friendly and power-saving attributes. Increased power consumption is being prevented with its GreenPower Technology, as it manages heat which allows the hard drive to operate cooler with increased overall reliability. This unique technology of WD Green also decreases noise and vibration levels as well as hard drive failure, allowing you to work with your computer in a more hassle-free manner. Also, its advanced 4K HDD formatting makes WD Green a stronger solution compared to its rivals in the market.

Although famous for its power-saving and eco-friendly features, WD Green also works best as a complementary drive to solid state drives (SSDs) as it solves storage limitations through the Smart Response Technology. It also delivers the ultimate experience for gamers who want a steady balance of capacity and speed.

“WD Green, once combined with SSD though the Intel rapid storage technology, can achieve the speed of SSD then take advantage of the additional capacity from HDD. It’s like hybrid drives,” explained by Albert Chung, senior product marketing manager for WD APAC. “WD Green as a second drive can be alternative for the WD Black, which is popular for its system performance. SSD can provide the needed speed of the gamers, yet with WD Green Drive, the capacity of the desktop storage can increase.”

WD Green, an ecofriendly, high performance storage device that is highly recommended for primary use in desktop and all-in-one PCs, can also be a supplementary storage for backing up files and archiving.

With best-in-class power management, reduced heat output and next-generation technologies such as IntelliSeek, WD Green offers a perfect balance of performance and power.


Perfect collaboration

The gamers cup organized by WD, with the collaborating efforts of Imperium Internet bar, has hyped up the local tech and gaming scene. WD awarded 5 WD Green hard drive units to the winning team and held a cool party for the tech press. Although the event is primarily aimed at WD’s brand awareness, it has also inevitably changed the e-gaming landscape in the Philippines, according to Raphael Gancayco, president of Imperium e-Sports Bar and Video Game Lounge.
