Momentus® XT Solid State Hybrid Drive Supes Up Laptops
Seagate’s Momentus® XT Solid State Hybrid Drive sets a new speed record for laptop hard drives. This 2.5 inch hybrid takes the best qualities of SSD and HDD drives to offer laptop users speed, capacity, and affordability.
The Momentus XT clocks in at 7200RPM with 4GB of solid state memory. It uses Seagate’s Adaptive Memory technology which moves the data you use the most to the embedded solid state memory. Put it altogether and you’ve got a drive that runs up to 100% faster than the average laptop hard drive.
“For notebook PC users looking forward to faster PC performance without sacrificing storage capacity or affordability, now there’s an option,€ according to John Rydning, IDC’s research director for hard disk drives. “Seagate’s new Momentus® XT drive is the first storage device for notebook PCs that raises the bar for affordable capacity and performance.
The Momentus XL family includes 250Gb, 320Gb, and 500Gb drives with a new 750Gb on the way. Expect to find the Momentus XT drives, starting at $113, coming soon.
