Primarily for use in thin and light mobile PCs or portable external hard disk enclosures, the MK3233GSG is a 5400RPM drive with a 16MB memory buffer. When compared to the 250GB model of the same series, the new 320GB drive is superior in data transfer rates due to the areal density improvement and acoustic noise during seeking has also been lowered by 4dB to just 19dB. Energy consumption is also said to be around 19% more efficient than the previous generation 1.8-inch drives from Toshiba.

 

More information on the new MK3233GSG can be found within the official press release here folks.
