Toshiba introduced the MQ01ACF, a new line of 7mm thin 2.5" HDDs that spin at 7278RPM. They're expected to be available from August 30 in 320GB and 500GB capacities.
The "MQ01ACF" series is Toshiba's first 7,278rpm, 2.5-inch product with a 7 mm height. The series offers two models: the "MQ01ACF050" with a recording capacity of 500 GB and the 320 GB "MQ01ACF032". A maximum internal transfer rate of 1,850 Mbit/s is realized by improvement to linear recording density and the 7,278 rpm rotational speed. Implementation of the 6 Gbit/s SATA interface also boosts data transfer rates over those of current models.
The slim "MQ01ACF" series is suitable for laptops and ultra-thin notebooks, especially for high-end PCs offering high speed data processing.
