Maxtor heeft een press release losgelaten over z'n nieuwe 7200rpm DiamondMax Plus 5120 drive:
According to Bill Roach, Maxtor's senior vice president of worldwide sales and marketing, these new 7,200 RPM DiamondMax Plus drives continue the leadership Maxtor has demonstrated over the past 18 months in the desktop hard disk drive marketplace. "With both our 5,400 RPM and 7,200 RPM products, we have consistently led the industry in shipping new generations of products in volume, while delivering the superior quality required by demanding OEM and distribution customers," said Roach. "Our new 7,200 RPM DiamondMax Plus 5120 drive sets a new standard for the high performance desktop market, delivering superior performance and quality along with our leadership technology."
The DiamondMax Plus 5120 offers capacities up to 20.4 GB (5,120 megabytes per disk), UltraDMA compatibility and an average seek time of 9.0 ms. This new family shares a number of features with its predecessor, the DiamondMax Plus 2500, including a digital signal processor (DSP)-based electronics architecture and partial response maximum likelihood (PRML) read channel technology. Combined, these technologies result in a higher-capacity, higher-performance drive.
