Not a normal HDD, not yet an SSD killer.

May 26th, 2010        

Not a normal HDD, not yet an SSD killer.Seagate has just announced their latest addition to 2.5inch HDD. The hybrid Momentus XT HDD is the world fastest in 2.5inch, and cost only a fraction over USD100.

This new beast is a hybrid, as it incorporates traditional mechanical hard disks with 4GB of SSD and 32MB of DDR3 all fused together. The results are astonishing. It is 80 percent faster than conventional 7,200rpm HDD; and 100 percent faster than 5,400rpm HDD. The Momentus XT literally surpass traditional HDD in all tests run by Overclockers Club.
