Notebooks will soon get 320GB HDDs

Posted on Thursday, June 28 2007 @ 01:30:32 CEST by

Japanese platter makers promise 320GB HDDs for notebooks will soon be available:
Both Fuji Electric Group and Showa Denko K.K. (SDK) this week said they had begin shipments of 334GB platters for 3.5” hard drives as well as 160GB platters for 2.5” HDDs to their customers. The 334GB platters are already utilized by Samsung’s SpinPoint F1 hard disk drives, but unfortunately it is unclear whether 160GB platters are already used by the companies’ customers.

Potentially, 160GB 2.5” platters allow creation of HDDs for notebooks with 320GB capacities, which is 70GB more compared to currently shipping drives from companies like Western Digital. Still, makers of hard drives usually do not format platters to maximum capacity due to yield reasons.
