Seagate Expands Desktop Hard Drive Series With 750GB Monster
Seagate Technology finally unveiled its first 750GB hard drive of which we wrote some time ago. The monster drive is part of the new Barracuda 7200.10 family built on perpendicular recording technology and is designed for desktop computers and low-end servers.
The perpendicular recording technology stands data bits vertically onto the disc media, rather than horizontal to the surface as with traditional longitudinal recording. The new data orientation also increases drive throughput without increasing spin speed by allowing more data bits to pass under the drive head in the same amount of time.
Barracuda 7200.10 also features cache sizes from 8MB to 16MB and 1.5Gb/s and 3.0Gb/s Serial ATA data transfer rates with Native Command Queuing. NCQ enhances reliability in heavy workloads by reducing head movement and streamlining the delivery of queued commands to the drive.
The novelty also offers:
- Adaptive Fly Height - Maximizes the consistency of read/write performance across the entire disc by adjusting the fly height (distance between the disc head and platter) according to changes in environmental operating conditions.
- Clean Sweep - Helps maintain media integrity and drive reliability by passing the drive head over the entire platter during power-on to smooth out any irregularities in the disc surface.
The new Barracuda 7200.10 family is now shipping to the worldwide distribution channel.
