IBM Releases New HDD : Claiming that it's the fastest in the world

Posted on Thursday, October 03 2002 @ 13:54:11 CEST by

IBM, who is going to sell its HDD subsidiary to Hitachi, announced today the 180GXP hard disk drive, which is claimed to be the fastest IDE drive in the world, according to the company. The novelty should offer up to 25% higher performance compared to the predecessors thanks to a new technology called «Tag'n'seek» (Tagged Command Queuing).

The 180GXP is a 7200 RPM drive that features a fourfold increase in cache size - up to 8MB - for increased data throughput and user productivity. It has a maximum capacity of 180GB and offers customers a broad range of options at 30, 40, 60, 80, 120 and 180GB. The 60GB model of the drive will retail for $144, while the 180GB version costing $360. All the HDD utilise fluid dynamic bearing spindle motors, thus, minimising noise.

IBM also said that its new hard disk drives consume less power and dissipate less heat, as a result, such devices will be pretty useful for RAID storages and other applications of such kind. Of course, personal computer vendors and end-users will be glad to use such fast HDD as well.
