Seagate develops 2.5" SCSI drive


— 2:23 AM on February 19, 2004

Seagate has announced a new line of 2.5" Savvio SCSI hard drives. The Savvio drives are not only 70% smaller than traditional 3.5" disks, they also consume 40% less power and reportedly have 15% faster seek times. Savvio drives are expected in the second quarter of this year in 36 and 73GB capacities.

While Savvio drives were designed for high-density enterprise applications, their potentially superior performance, smaller form factor, and lower power consumption may also titillate enthusiasts. I can't help but wonder if Seagate might also be quietly working on 2.5" Serial ATA drives for small form factor consumer applications, too.

Tip: You can use the A/Z keys to walk threads.
