World’s First Seagate 3.5″ HDD with 1TB Per Platter

Seagate today unveiled the world’s first 3.5-inch hard drive featuring 1TB of storage capacity per disk platter,
breaking the 1TB areal density barrier to help meet explosive worldwide demand for digital content storage in both the home and the office.

According to the company, the new hard drives have an areal density of 625 Gigabits per square inch,
which Seagate states is the highest density achieved in the HDD industry.

For now, the drive will only be used for the company’s GoFlex Desk line of external hard drives, which range in capacity for 1TB to 3TB and also offer USB 3.0 support to deliver improved transfer speeds.

Later down the line, in mid-2011 to be more exact, the new hard drives will also make their way in the company’s 3.5-inch Barracuda XT HDD line where they will be available in capacities of 3TB, 2TB, 1.5TB and 1TB.

Pricing has not been announced, but the 3TB version of the FreeAgent GoFlex Desk external drive is available for $230.
