[S.Daily] Accelerate Data Storage by Several Orders of Magnitude? - Page 3

post #21 of 23
A mechanical hard drive is only mechanical in the sense that it moves the reading/writing head over the platters, this tech is for the platers not for the mechanical head, and sure it will make the head require so much less time over an "cell" to magnetize it or demagnetize

But the bottleneck is not how long it takes to write to a cell but the fact that the reading writing mechanism is mechanical slow and prone to imperfections, in a SSD you can instantly read a cell just by adressing it theres no mechanical arm that needs to move over a spinning plater and find the right track with the information you seek

In order to make HDD 1000 times faster they wold have to spin 1000 times faster and the mechanical arm move 1000 times faster and be PRECISE about it ... imagine a hdd with a platter spinning at 7.200.000 rpm, at that speed there is NO material that can withstand the forces involved let alone one made up as a disk AND with magnetic properties AND the same properties that make it 1000 times faster than what we have today.

I do believe the moment we have some magnetic material spinning at a few million rpm we will have anti gravity propulsion

What the new head would do is put more information in a smaller place. The disk doesn't have to move faster at all. Let's say you're storing 9 billion bytes in one inch of movement. Improve the head enough so that it can read and right smaller magnetic coding, and now it can store 20 billion bytes in an inch of movement. The head doesn't have to move faster to read more data.

of course they have to make a proffit ... but you made it sound like its a huge markup ....



i doubt its that huge ... they do have to make licensing deals with the companys making the logic to control the chips onto those pcb's ... buy the memory chips + make their own R&D on top of that .... of course they will charge for it ... they want their money back ... so add up all of those cost and check out their sales at the end of the year and if you could have every other numbers in that picture you could tell us how much markup there is and if its huge or not ... but anyway .. its a good thing for mechanical drives ...


i for one dont want ssd's yet ... and this is a welcome news

exactly ... and i cant imagine how fast the 15k rpm scsi drives would be with this tech


something to rival high end ssd's at price and longevity
