Seagate 1TB hard drive

Earlier this year, Seagate announced its intentions to release an unprecendented 1TB hard drive by the second half of 2007; even the company's largest hard drives tend to be limited to 500 or 750GB. With only three months left before the deadline however, Seagate representatives insist that the drive is still on track, and the Spanish-language site Chilehardware claims to have acquired specifications: it is said to be a 7,200rpm model with a 3Gbps SATA interface, and use four platters, eight heads and a 16MB buffer. Should the information prove to be true, the drive will also be on sale by the end of April. The only 1TB product currently on the market is Hitachi's Deskstar 7K1000. [via DailyTech]
