Accelerate Data Storage by Several Orders of Magnitude? Ultra-Fast Magnetic Reversal Observed


Quote:
ScienceDaily (Apr. 19, 2011) — A newly discovered magnetic phenomenon could accelerate data storage by several orders of magnitude.

With a constantly growing flood of information, we are being inundated with increasing quantities of data, which we in turn want to process faster than ever. Oddly, the physical limit to the recording speed of magnetic storage media has remained largely unresearched. In experiments performed on the particle accelerator BESSY II of Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin, Dutch researchers have now achieved ultrafast magnetic reversal and discovered a surprising phenomenon.

more...
"Translated to magnetic data storage, this would signify a read/write rate in the terahertz range. That would be around 1000 times faster than present-day commercial computers," says Radu.

Can you imagine?

nice... would be great to see faster drives out, then the recent ones would go down in price.

Holy balls, finally something faster than raptors. If this is developed, ssd's and their prices will be left in the dust.

You can say that again... However, how much do you think 1000x faster than SSD would cost us?

and people said magnetic drives couldnt get any better


LOL they were so wrong

its mechanical ... so it can be mass produced much cheaper then a bunch of silicon chips on a smaller more complicated fab process each year or so ...

I was more referring to how much they would charge us for something that is 1000x faster than what we currently have... Look at the mark up of HDD versus SSD...

ssd's are not marked up, the chips used in them cost a freaking lot, that price gets passed onto us

I should have been more clear as to what I meant by mark up... I meant it in the regards of what you pay for an SSD versus a HDD (what are the benefits etc.). Of course, its more expensive to make SSD. However, if you were a company designing this new drive that would be ~1000x faster than anything else on the market you would only sell it in terms of production costs? I don't think so...

the markup on ssd isnt only due to the speed ... but due more to the fact that they consist more on silicon circuitry ...


hdd's are a bunch of mechanical parts ... a platter ...



by that time ssd will be much faster too .. so i dont see how hdd's would be sold for more then ssd's even if theres a speed advantage and a longevity advantage

what is needed for an ssd is ...the silicon needed for the controler on the drive itself + the chips consisting of the memory aka storage of that ssd and of course the pcb on the other hand an hdd needs a controler a small pcb ... and mostly mechanical parts ... + the media ... wich is the platter ...


seems like its an easy reason as to why hdds cost less


is it easier to mass produce mechanical parts based on the same specs or create silicon based chips ???

the thing is there are heaps of advances like this constantly reported in the news, but none of it ever gets applied to the real world. Disappointing.
