Samsung has announced its one Terabyte internal hard disk drive, Spinpoint M8 for use in mobile computing applications such as notebook PCs. The Spinpoint M8, which consists of two 500 gigabyte platters, provides users with one terabyte storage space. It measures 9.5mm in height which can comfortably fit in mobile computing applications.
The high density was achieved by utilizing advanced format technology (AFT), which raises the data storage density per unit area, enabling efficient and convenient data storage. A reduced number of components such as disks and heads also contribute to approximately seven percent increase in operation speeds and eight percent decline in power demand.
The dual-platter Spinpoint M8 operates on a high-performance 3 gigabits per second SATA interface, provides an eight megabyte buffer memory and incorporates EcoSeek and NoiseGuard features for minimal noise levels. A redesign of the overall structure ensures enhanced shock resistance to protect the disk from physical fracture and data loss. The 1TB Samsung Spinpoint M8 is available worldwide at an MSRP of US$129.
