First 3.5" Perpendicular Recording Hard Drive
XYZComputing.Com has posted up some information regarding Seagate's latest enterprise class hard drive that features new perpendicular recording technology. It's not a desktop hard drive by any means, considering it's only available in SAS, Ultra320 SCSI, and fibre channel flavors, but the tech will surely trickle down in time.
"Seagate's big news today is the announcement of an update to its flagship enterprise disk, the Cheetah 15K.4. The new model, the Cheetah 15K.5 will become Seagate's top-of-the-line 15,000 RPM disk and the industry's first 3.5" disk with perpendicular recording. The new drive will feature capacity up to 300GB and will be available in SAS, Ultra320 SCSI, and fibre channel interfaces."
