1TB per Sqaure Inch?

Fujitsu have apparently broken the 1TB restriction using a curious physical trick involving at least three devices a hard drive has never had to use thus far: a very small space heater, a virtual refrigerator just as small, and an optical reading mechanism. Care to comment? Feel free to do so below...

I agree! Bring on the 20k RPM drives, w00t w00t!

SCSI drives top out at 15k if things haven't changed since the last time I looked.

Raptors would be the end-all drives right now if WD would just make a friggin' SATAII version of it. I still can't believe that they released the 150gb version as SATA 1.5, bloody idiots!

Yep, 'size matters' still comes out every now and then...

but where pc's are concerned, I'm 'Mr. Speed'! (<--old KISS song) Question is, do faster rotational speeds count as much as throughput? In any event, I recall HDD's are the slowest component in a pc so yeah, gotta make 'em faster instead of fatter.

currently rotational speed directly coincides with througput but most hd busses cant handle the extra performance gain from a faster rotational speed.

I agree that the hard drives need to get faster although I think the best way may be to put 2 head mechanisms in one drive. Also a greatly increased density should provide faster transfer speeds.

dont think this will be used in desktop pc's. think it will be used in more portable solutions.

I think the next step you will see in hard drive performance is going to be solid state. Although we could be waiting a while.
