TDK announced it's developing a magnetic head for thermal-assisted magnetic recording (TAMR) capable of enabling hard disks with a storage density of 1.5Tb/inch², double as much as today's disks. The company says the technology will start shipping in 2014, enabling HDD makers to create 2.5" disks with up to 2TB of storage capacity and 3.5" disks with 8TB to 10TB of storage capacity.
The new technology will enable 1TB platters for 2.5" hard disk drives as well as 2TB platters for 3.5" hard drives, which will let companies like Seagate, Toshiba and Western Digital to produce 2.5" HDDs with up to 2TB capacities and boost capacities of 3.5" drives to 8TB - 10TB. In addition, the new tech will enable new capacity-points for ultra-thin 5mm and 7mm hard drives.

TDK did not reveal many details about its new development, but said it used medium from Showa Denko K.K., a leading maker of magnetic media for hard disk drives.
