One terabyte? Pshaw. That’s so last week. Samsung just perfected a method for putting over 1TB on a single platter, allowing for 4TB hard drives at considerably lower cost. These drives could actually lead to 10TB drives for laptops and desktops, a fairly amazing proposition.
The new drives will run at 5400RPM and include about 32MB of cache. Thus far drives have been stuck at 2TB for various reasons, but this new drive technology should arrive soon and will completely change storage.
