Seagate unveals world's fastest hard drive for laptops

Is this Seagate's secret weapon to counter Western Digital? The market analysis shall tell on how this product and the company performs in the coming few months...

Seagate has unveiled Momentus XT, which it claims is the world's fastest 2.5in laptop PC hard drive.

The drive, it said, combines Solid State Drive-like performance with the massive capacity and much lower cost of standard hard disk drives. It has a 7,200rpm spin speed and 4GB of cache memory.

It also features Adaptive Memory - a groundbreaking new technology from Seagate that learns and optimises the drive's performance to each user by moving frequently-used information into the cache memory for faster access.

The Momentus XT solid-state hybrid drive boots up to 100% faster than traditional 5,400rpm (revolutions per minute) drives, the mainstream spin-speed for laptop PCs, said Seagate.
Therefore, it said, the new drive sets higher benchmarks for real-world system performance for laptops and gaming systems.

"For notebook PC users looking forward to faster computer performance without sacrificing storage capacity or affordability, there's now an option," said John Rydning, IDC research director for hard disk drives.
