Seagate to launch 750GB desktop hard drive?
Every month we seem to get another landmark for hard drives, wheetehr that’s smaller in size or bigger in capacity. For April it’s looking like capacity, with Seagate believed to be on the verge of announcing a 3.5-inch 750GB desktop drive.
The drive hasn’t officially been annonced yet – but it is beginning to appear on the company’s marketing material.The drive runs at 7,200rpm and contains 16MB of cache memory. Seagate will offer the HDD with a choice of Ultra ATA 100, 1.5Gbps SATA or 3Gbps SATA interfaces. The Serial ATA versions both support Native Command Queuing (NCQ).
The drive’s capacity is believed to be a result of Seagate’s perpendicular recording technology. It’s likely to be offered with a five-year warranty, but the price as yet, remains unknown. Watch this space.
