Samsung Launches New 500 Gigabyte per Platter Hard Drive Line-up

Samsung announced today its new line-up of high-density hard drives for high-end computing environments, the Spinpoint F3.

The F3 operates at 7200RPM with offerings of up to 1 Terabyte (TB) data storage capacity by using two 500 Gigabyte (GB) per platter disks.

The Spinpoint F3 utilizes advanced 500GB per platter technology, so that two-platter 1TB capacity is achieved. Increased areal density per platter provides up to a 30 percent higher performance than a three-platter 1 TB in the same 3.5" form factor. A reduction in mechanical parts also contributes to enhanced reliability in terms of anti-shock and data failure.

Samsung?s new hard drive utilizes its low noise operation technology SilentSeek and NoiseGuard to achieve a quiet operation system. In addition, the new Spinpoint F3 is compliant with the (RoHS) restriction of hazardous substances directive.

The F3 incorporates a 7200RPM rotational speed, a 3.0Gbps SATA interface, Native Command Queuing features and a 16 MB/32MB buffer memory.

The Spinpoint F3 is currently available in 500GB capacities worldwide. The 1TB drive is scheduled for initial shipment in August.
