Hitachi readies high-speed 300GB hard drive

15,000rpm 300GB hard drive

Continuing its streak of hard drive announcements for 2007, begun with the world's first 1TB desktop model, Hitachi has revealed a new 300GB, Ultra-320 SCSI product called the Ultrastar 15K300. What the drive is really notable for, however, is being perhaps the only one at its capacity rated at 15,000rpm. It has a maximum transfer rate of 1.441Gbps, a seek speed of 3.6ms, and an average latency of 2ms; a 16MB cache smooths out performance. The main use of the 15K300 is expected to be in enterprise storage, but it should by no means be limited to that arena. The drive will begin shipping in June. [via Impress Watch]
