Seagate Releases 750GB Perpendicular HDD

Seagate Technology released the first desktop hard drive to hit the 750GB capacity mark. The monster drive is part of the new Barracuda 7200.10 family built on perpendicular recording technology, which stands data bits vertically onto the disc media, rather than horizontal to the surface as with traditional longitudinal recording.

Barracuda 7200.10 also features cache sizes from 8MB to 16MB and 1.5 Gb/s and 3.0Gb/s Serial ATA (SATA) data transfer rates with Native Command Queuing. NCQ enhances reliability in heavy workloads by reducing head movement and streamlining the delivery of queued commands to the drive.
