Fujitsu has launched a series of high capacity hard drives that the company says will be it quietest offering yet.

The MPG3xxxAT/H series will have up to 20.4 GB per platter capacity and will be available with spindle speed of 5,400rpm or 7,200 rpm respectively. The noise is minimised by the Fluid Dynamics Bearing motors, the company said.

The new drives have an average seek time of 8.5ms, the company said, and data transfer rates of up to 60.7MB/s. The inclusion of Ultra ATA/100 allows maximum media transfer rates of 100MB/s - an increase of 50 per cent over the previous series.

The series includes capacities of 10.2GB, 20.4GB and 40.9GB at 20.4GB per platter and of 30.7GB at 15.3GB per platter, and either a 512KB or a 2MB buffer.

The 5400rpm version and the 7200rpm version are both available now in the US for OEM evaluation. The T series (5400) will start shipping this month, while the H series (7200) is expected to ship by the end of Q4 this year. ®
