Seagate begins selling 8 TB HDD


    Just a few years ago, the memory capacity of 8 TB in an ordinary PC seemed almost fantastic. Now it’s not surprising anyone, however, such amounts of available memory are created by installing several HDDs.

    Now, Seagate has announced the start of sales of an 8TB model of hard drive, according to company representatives, this is the first HDD in the world of such capacity. In addition to capacity, the model is characterized by high energy efficiency and performance.

    These hard drives became known in July, when the company first spoke about them. A little later, an 8 TB HDD was sent out to corporate customers for testing. Actually, the devices are intended, first of all, for enterprise-class server systems where there is a need to work with large amounts of data.

    The company’s press release, the other day, says that the new HDD uses the SATA 6 Gb / s interface. The form factor of the model is 3.5 inches.

    Unfortunately, nothing more is known about the new discs; there is no information even about their possible price. However, it can be assumed that the price will be around $ 350-400, as earlier 6 TB models sold about $ 300 in retail.
