Seagate to release a 3TB 3.5-inch hard drive and a 1TB 2.5-inchthis year

Whoa there, Seagate. A 3TB hard drive? That’s nearly enough to hold all of John’s adult materials.

The Constellation ES 3TB hard drive is said to come later this year and bring along a 6Gbit/s interface. The enterprise drive will replace the Barracuda ES, which currently maxes out at a measly 2TB. Plus the company is working on a a 1TB 2.5-inch drive that will be the largest in its class when it launches. That is of course if Western Digital or Toshiba doesn’t out one before Seagate . Of course there’s no word on the pricing just yet, but chances are when these drives drop, the older 2TB drives should decrease nicely in price.
