Seagate Savvio at 15K RPM

Seagate today unveiled a new version of its Savvio hard drive that it says is the world's fastest hard drive. Though it spins at the same 15,000RPM speed as the fastest desktop hard drives, the Savvio 15K is even quicker to access information due to its smaller, 2.5-inch frame: data can be found in as little as 2.9ms, Seagate claims. Though not immediately intended for notebooks, the updated Savvio's similar characteristics also make it more power-efficent than its larger counterparts and consumes only 5.8 watts at idle versus the 8.4 or more seen on the desktop. HP says it has already begun shipping ProLiant servers with the drive in 36GB or 73GB models, and Seagate has also updated its more modest 10K RPM drives with the 146GB Savvio 10K.2.
