Western Digital's HGST is using helium to tackle industry-wide challenges in scaling current areal density technologies.
HGST's Travelstar 7K1000 is the first 1000 GB notebook drive we've tested with a 7200 RPM spindle speed. Is this hard disk a performance crown winner? We run our standard suite of benchmarks on it and compare the repository to 13 competitors.
With the announcement of LSI's SAS 9300-8e and HGST's Ultrastar SSD800MM earlier this year, the world was officially introduced to 12 Gb/s SAS. Today we get our first look at how two times the interface bandwidth translates to real-world performance.
We won't be needing birthday balloons any more for our funny voices, thanks to the upcoming HGST new helium-filled hard disk drive platform.*
