New Storage Tech From TDK Doubles Hard Drive Space

X

Japanese company TDK Corp has developed new technology that more than doubles the recording density of hard disk drives.
The magnetic-head technology used is expected to bring new, high-storage hard drives to the market by 2012, according to the Nikkei Business Daily.

This recording density refers to how many bits of data can be stored along a given length on the hard disk platter. By increasing this recording density, more information can be stored on the same sized drive.

While the paper did not specify the new recording densities, the new drives to come from this updated technology will come in sizes over 1 terabyte, recording up to 1,600 hours of HD digital video.

The end result of updated hard drive technologies are higher capacities across sizes, with 3.5 inch home PC hard drives ramping up capacities as well as 2.5 inchers for notebooks.

Researchers in Singapore have also been pushing the boundaries of hard drive storage, pushing up recording densities over a Terabit per inch-squared last month.
