Default Hitachi Ships Industry’s First 2TB 7200RPM HDD

Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (Hitachi GST) on Thursday said that it had begun shipments of the world’s first 2TB hard disk drive (HDD) with 7200 rounds per minute spindle speed. The new HDD is the world’s highest performance hard drive with the industry’s highest capacity, however, despite of expectations, the novelty does not utilize the leading-edge 500GB platters.
“The new Deskstar 7K2000 reflects our ongoing commitment to provide customers, channel partners and OEMs with proven, reliable solutions for enabling desktop computers, gaming systems, workstations and desktop RAID arrays,” said Brendan Collins, vice president of marketing at Hitachi GST.
Hitachi Deskstar 7K2000 hard drive with 2TB capacity is based on five 400GB platters with 36.5GB areal density (per square inch), features 32MB data buffer, 7200rpm spindle speed, Serial ATA-300 interface. Hitachi declares 8.2ms typical read seek time for the novelty. The company claims that the 7K2000 consumes just about 7.5W. The Deskstar 7K2000 features 3.5” form-factor and is aimed at desktops and workstations.
