Another step has been taken in the race to have the biggest/fastest/etc machine as Hitachi announces a one-inch high hard drive with a capacity of 73.9GB.

This is twice as large as the next capacity down the list at the same size, so no doubt Hitachi is feeling very pleased. It will also use 27 per cent less power than a 1.6in 72GB hard drive.

The DK32DJ-72 hard drive will reach Hitachi's OEM in Q1 2001, and is available in both SCSI and 2 Gb FCAL interfaces. The company maintains that it will be easy to integrate without re-engineering the drive chassis or modifying the power supply. They will also have the option to increase the drive's buffer to 16MB, another "largest capacity" figure.

It has been designed for use in network applications requiring intense data processing, the company said, like SANs, network attached storage, and RAIDs. ®
