IBM ships Deskstar 60GXP


"...IBM today announced the Deskstar 60GXP. This new drive handles a wide range of advanced desktop and audio/video applications. The 60GXP features enhancements such as low acoustics, reduced power and tagged command queuing. The Deskstar 60GXP stores 20-gigabytes (GB) of data per disk, a 33 percent increase per disk over the previous generation. A single drive can now store the equivalent of 50,000 paperback novels (about 10 million pages) or 3,000 hours of CD-quality music. The drive offers a maximum media data rate of 494 megabits per second (Mb/s) and 8.5 milliseconds (ms) average seek time.

IBM's ongoing improvements to its Deskstar products have produced the lowest acoustics of any 3-disk, 7200 RPM drive, 3.1 Bels. A unique 3-layer top cover and ceramic spindle motor bearings enable this leading low acoustic level. The Deskstar 60GXP's lower power dissipation leads the industry with 6.7 watts idle power. Lower power means less cooling, extended system life and greater reliability. The Deskstar also provides the highest non-operational shocktolerance, 400 G for two disks, minimizing the impact of mishandling. This is accomplished, in part, by IBM's unique load/unload mechanism that moves the heads off of the media surface during power-off protecting the user's data. IBM's unique TrueTrack* servo insulates the drive from system vibrations, ensuring accurate write and read operations.

The Deskstar 60GXP will be shipping in volume in December 2000. The estimated retail price of the 60 GB model is expected to be $355.

Specifications: Three capacities: 60/40/20 GB 3 to 1 glass disks 15.3 billion bits aerial density 8.5 ms average seek time 494 Mb/s maximum media data rate Up to 100 MB/s host data rate Up to 40 MB/s sustained data rate 2 MB buffer 3.1 Bels idle acoustics (3 disks) 400 G (1 and 2 disks), 350 G nonoperating shock (3 disks).."
