Seagate Announces Worlds Highest Density Mobile Hard Drives

Seagate Technology has announced that they have achieved an area density of 1TB per platter on 2.5" Hard Drives. This will allow for 2TB Mobile Hard Drives with a 7MM thickness.

“In an industry first, our engineers have been able to boost areal density to 1TB per platter in a 2.5-inch form factor, which will give OEMs the flexibility to design and build virtually any kind of mobile device they can envision, with plenty of storage to boot,” said Mark Re, Seagate’s chief technology officer. “Combining new mechanical firmware architectures, with state of the art heads, media and electronic design, this technology is a real game changer- providing four times more capacity than a 0.25TB SSD at a substantially lower cost.”
