Fujitsu announced it has started mass production of 2.5" Serial ATA drives for notebooks. The hard disk drive features Native Command Queuing (NCQ), an important feature that intelligently and simultaneously coordinates up to 32 instructions to be queued and reordered by the hard disk controller, contributing to a significant improvement in overall performance.
The Fujitsu 2.5" SATA hard disk drive is among the world's smallest,
fastest and most efficient hard disk drives. The interface boasts data
transfer rates of 150 Mbytes per second with dedicated throughput. Over the
past year, leading OEMs have adopted and implemented SATA hard disk drive
technology in mobile computers and consumer electronics due to its speed and
quick response. Broad distribution of the hard disk drive series will enable
additional growth of the technology in those applications as well as in
enterprise storage systems and desktop computing environments.
