If there was only some meaningful point to it all, beyond burning up resources. <runs away hiding behind his new, bigger, better, faster, more, Sunday SSD purchase>
Kinda true though.
I'm waiting for some of this new tech to make its way into 2.5" external hard drives. They've been stuck at 4TB (or 5TB if you want SMR drives) for years. I use 2.5" externals for backup and 4TB isn't enough any more.
i doubt you'll see that in laptop hdds - it's a speed solution, not a capacity solution. And at those capacities, SSD is definately a ballpark cost equivalent with much better performance, reliability and heat/power consumption. Since the high performance 2.5" market is captured by enterprise and not laptops, you're unlikely to see big moves in the spinner category - hp and netapps performance range is all flash now, not hdd for example and it'll take a different technology alltogether to make them go back to performance spinners, so not much incentive for seagate/wd to develop that class. External backups in usb boxes will never be high on the list for performance hdd development - the preponderance of sales will be cost or capacity over speed, and i doubt many people are interested in the complexity and reliability danger of a striped backup disk operating off an easily removable plug.
Come on, this is a bargain for 8TB.
I'd say the 2.5 spinner category isnt going to see any investment until (if) hamr tech makes it to market. even then it's a dead category
endurance isnt much tho right ?
not sure. I've read the same rumours for years.
the virus must be screwing with the delivery plans though ......
maybe we'll see more platters (again) as the only way forward for a while longer ?? the whole multi head arms thing has me interested though. if they do go to 12 platter stacks then the gap between platters will be an issue (i assume) so having staggered arms helps on two fronts ??
we need IBM to create pixie dust 2.0 to sprinkle on the platters
talking about the QVO drive you linked ..........
I doubt i've linked a QVO drive in this thread ?? or do you mean the 8TB blinky linked ?
and HAMR and MAMR are reportedly suffering there too so its kinda on point
the new QVO drives out last the older model EVO's in therory
sammy are saying
thats not bad for a home PC. I'd love one in my torrent box
Watch this space. I will put money on it that it will.
Netflix and the others beat you to it
crypto will touch our nbn context dear
If anyone was going to do a Proof of Bandwidth it would be the BitTorrent creator.
well with the new plotter , you might find the chia guys wont want as many NVME, but I be damned if i can find any large drives in stock with out paying thru the nose.
I reckon he is the creator of Bitcoin too. He keeps talking up the beauty of the math. Also, the timing of his creation ascendency fits perfect.
Given the lack of large capacity drives at reasonable prices, I was quite surprised to see Mwave selling 10TB red pro for $475 ($6 more than 8TB red pro) so I grabbed 5 for my server + offsite backup.
I see that they've gone back to $549 today
WD 12 TB My Book
Just Shuck i Guess if you happen to need the Drives !
So glad i got 7 * 14TB Drives before all this chia crap, $299 delivered each.
