Seagate works on 24 TB HAMR based HDD and on HDDs with higher transfer rates


Originally published at:

By 2020, Seagate plans to introduce the first HDDs with 3 TB platters based on HAMR technology. This should be a model with a total capacity of 24 TB. Another HDD the company is hoping to launch has two actuators and therefore should be able to achieve a sequential throughput of up to 500 MB/s.


Seagate has plenty of SMR drives, introduced with their Archival HDDs years ago?
