JAPANESE COMPUTER MAKER Toshiba has released two 5,400RPM hard disk drives in a line of 2.5-inch HDDs that it says have the highest areal density and largest capacities yet at 750GB and 1TB.
Sample shipments of the MK7559GSXP HDD will start from April. They will have an areal density of 839.1Mb/mm2, making them ideal for mobile applications.
According to Toshiba, "this HDD is well-suited for devices that value high capacity in a smaller footprint with improved acoustic performance and lower power operation compared to larger form factor HDDs. Those applications include all-in-one desktops, televisions and set top boxes."
The MK7559GSXP drive's energy consumption is about 14 per cent less than the previous generation.
Toshiba also introduced a three-platter 12.5-millimeter-high disk drive, the MK1059GSM with 1TB of storage.
While there is no word on prices, Toshiba tells us that the hard disk drives are made of environmentally friendly products that agreed to be used in the devices. µ
