Leak hints Western Digital is set to unveil its 2TB version Caviar Green, the WD20EADS, possibly by the end of the week. We are taking about a 3.5-inch format hdd with 500GB per platter design here, squeezing 2TB of capacity onto one single disk drive, not the raid version of My Book external drive with multi drives device.

Information of the new drive first appeared on a Czech e-retailer store listing, and was later collaborated by Fudzilla. Report also mentioned the eco-friendly Caviar will feature 32 MB of cache, a seek time of 8.9ms and will spin at either 5400RPM or 7200RPM like the current Green Caviar lineup.

The price on the new 2Tb Green Caviar is not yet known, but rumors are saying somewhere in the range of $210 - $240.
