Samsung stealthy intros 1TB hard drive - Page 4

post #31 of 38
Also, keep in mind thatit is probably cheaper for Samsung to manufacture these drives because it uses less raw materials, just like how CPU fabs move to smaller processes and make more chips per wafer.

It's good to know that manufacturers are pushing the single HDD sizes...

Just wish the sizes of Solid-State Drives would increase faster than they have been. That's where it's at.

So physical drive sizes have been reduced.

Sorry I'm not bickering...honest.
One size standard reduction in 20 years isn't a trend. Especially when you consider than HDs size is the fastest growing aspect of computing. In those 20 years, HD data density has increased millions of times.


I couldn't find the exact size... but I found a dated white paper on SCSI vs IDE. It says the SCSI platters are usually smaller than desktop HDs.

Cheetahs use a 2.5" platter BUT still use a 3.5" form factor.

Perfect example of a 'supposed' 3.5" drive actually having a smller physical platter.

Thats right, all the faster spinning drives are using smaller Physical platters.

smaller physical platters also means less head travel which equals longer life.
These smaller platters are being used in machines that run 24/7 like at my work.

However, enterprise and desktop HDs are pretty much two seperate realms. SCSI drives are in an entirely seperate requirement class. It has only been recently (last 4 yrs) that there have been overlap. It's an apples-to-orange comparison. 3.5" desktop HDs platter size has not changed in the last 20 yrs. There is no trend for smaller platters... unless you can provide more data points.
