Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 Released

It seems that just recently all news is Seagate related.

Following on from our release about the Seagate 7200.11 hard disk drive range Seagate have now announced that they are shipping the drive's successor, the predictably named 7200.12. The hard disk is currently shipping to OEM providers.

The new hard drive range features the highest areal density of any consumer hard disk available, cramming 1TB of storage space onto just two platters or 500GB per disk, this equates to 329 Gb/in2.

Other features include a significantly higher sustained data rate of 160MB/second, which completely trounces the 115MB/second that the current generation 7200.11 hard drives are capable of. The drives will ship with two different sizes of cache, 16MB or 32MB and will be available in 1TB, 750GB and 500GB varieties with a SATA II 3Gbps interface speed.

As described in our earlier post, regarding the reduction in Seagate's warranty period for bare drives, the new series will only ship with a limited 3 year warranty, rather than the 5 years that Seagate have traditionally provided with such devices.

TRC Data Recovery hope to receive some of these drives soon to aid in performance benchmarking and reliability testing, we will keep you posted of anything that we discover.
