Later this year Seagate are aiming to launch their eye popping 3TB drive. Industry insiders say Seagate have had this 3TB drive in development for quite some time and there are unconfirmed rumours that the drive will be ‘variable speed’ that can spin between 5,900 and 7,200 rpm – this will be marketed as the ‘green model’. Afterwards the performance 7,200 ‘constant’ model will be launched for more demanding enthusiast users.
While this is going to be a great option for Windows Vista/7 and even Macintosh/Linux users, if you are still on Windows XP, there may be some compatibility issues when upgrading.
KitGuru says: With the increasing need for storage we look forward to seeing these models on the market.
