Seagate working on 10,000RPM HDD for desktop PCs

Posted on Monday, Apr 02 2007 @ 13:01 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Our friends from Chile Hardware had a chat with an engineer from Seagate last week.

One of the interesting things they've learned is that later this month we can expect 1TB HDDs from Seagate.

Another interesting snippet is that the Seagate engineer talked about 10k RPM hard drives for consumers. This will be a new lineup from Seagate that should compete with the Raptor HDDs from Western Digital. CHW heard demand for this kind of HDDs is big enough and that the cost of producing them is low enough.

300gb Perpendicular recording at a sweet 10k rpm with a 32mb buffer...

Now that would be SWEET!
