Hybrid HDD necessary for Vista Premium requirement

Posted on Thursday, June 15 2006 @ 02:08:27 CEST by


Microsoft said at TechEd 2006 that a hybrid hard drive will be a requirement for mobile computer systems that carry the Vista Premium logo, beginning in June 2007.
In the Windows Logo Device Program Requirements document, version 3.01, quietly released by Microsoft last Friday, storage requirement #0005, whose description has typically read, "Hybrid disk drives or systems that implement a hybrid disk drive must meet the requirements outlined here," is now followed by this phrase: "This requirement will go into effect for premium mobile systems in June 1 2007."

As Ayres told TG Daily, hybrid hard drive manufacturers Samsung and Seagate, as well as other manufacturers which Microsoft works with, but whose names have not yet been formally announced, have been informed of the company's decision to make hybrid drive inclusion a mandatory element for mobile systems next year.
More details at TG Daily.
