| Posted: Jan 5, 2009 8:44 pm

Seagate has put themselves back in the forefront of magnetic storage today with the announcement of a 1TB drive consisting of only two disks.

 

The disks are capable of holding 500GB of data each. The new drives dubbed the Barracuda 7200.12 will maintain the SATA 3.0GB protocol and should be available shortly.

 

I am certain this is just the intro to the first 2TB drives.
