Seagate Technology has unveiled an array of disk and tape drive technologies which are touted to provide enhanced data access speeds for use on applications including full-motion audio and video programs, and CD-ROM caching.
The roll-out features the Medalist Pro 9140, a 7200rpm Ultra ATA-interface hard disk drive for desktop PCs which has a capacity of 9.1Gb and runs magneto-resistive (MR) heads to provide higher densities. The product also comes equipped with 512K of cache and can transfer data at speeds of up to 33.3Mb/sec.
Seagate further enhanced the Medalist range with a series of 3.5in Ultra ATA-inter- face hard disk drives with capacities ranging from 2.1Gb to 8.6Gb. Meanwhile, Seagate announced the Cheetah 9LP low-profile disk drive and the Sidewinder 200, a tape drive autoloader. by Cameron TomesAgateTel (02) 9878 4688Fax (02) 9878 4655
