Yesterday Maxtor announced two new 40GB hard disks: Fireball 3 and DiamondMax Plus 8, for $80 and $100, respectively. High-end up to 160GB DiamondMax Plus 9 and DiamondMax 16 are also available.

Disks differ by RPM: Fireball 3 features 5400 RPM, DiamondMax Plus 8 — 7200 RPM. Besides, the latter utilizes a special FDB (fluid-dynamic bearing) chassis to reduce noise. Both disks are 17 mm thick and support ATA-133. In addition, cheaper 20GB and 30GB drives are also available.

DiamondMax 16 features 5400 RPM, DiamondMax Plus 9 — 7200 RPM, utilizing the same FDB. Both disks have 60, 80, 120 and 160 GB capacity and support ATA-133. Besides, the company released a cheaper DiamondMax Plus 9 without FDB chassis and Plus 9 with Serial ATA and optional 8MB buffer. Shipments of Serial ATA Maxtor disks are expected in December.

DiamondMax Plus 9 will cost $300, DiamondMax 16 — $250.
