Hitachi Global Storage Technologies is first to the mat with an announcement of a 1-terabyte hard disk drive. Industry analysts widely expected a 1TB drive to ship sometime in 2007; Hitachi grabbed a head start on the competition by announcing its drive today, just before the largest U.S. consumer electronics show starts next week


The winner? The customer!


According to Hitachi, the drive ships in the first quarter of 2007, and will cost $399--less than the price of two individual 500GB hard drives today. The drive, called the Deskstar 7K1000, will be shown this weekend in Las Vegas at the 2007 International CES, also known as the Consumer Electronics Show, as well as at the Storage Visions storage conference.


Now the following quote is interesting:

Hitachi notes it took the industry 35 years to reach 1GB (in 1991), 14 years more to reach 500GB (in 2005), and just two more years to reach 1TB.


TORRENTS + 1TB +

Wonder what tech will be like in 10 years?

It is scary how fast we are advancing technologically.

The average user supporting a 1TB hd, imagine the efforts to actually fill that.

The 1TB Ipod next?

This is really no surprise to me. I have been following computer tech for about.... TO LONG...

What I do find interesting is this however.

I remember back in the day playing StarCraft, a few of us talking about the PC we are going to get.

I remember the stats on 1 PC that was "Kick Ass" at the time.

PIII 500
128 megs of ram
10 gig HD
32 meg vid card

Compare those stats with todays PC that I will be building at the end of the month I consider computer tech going way way insane.

Intel 2.4 duo core
2 gigs of Memory
160 gig OS drive and 2 500 gig backup drives
640 meg video card

Comparative to only mid 90s I consider things to get insanely fast and bigger as time passes.

Which brings me to another point about HD's
I heard a few yrs back I think it was Seagate that was working on a HD that was smaller than a pack of cigarettes. Now that would be insanely cool.

This is not the first 1TB drive.

Though people will get more and more familiar with the term TB this year.

The following is a commercially available external firewire 1TB drive... and could have been bought by the public as far back as the later half 2005...





The data comms industry has been using NAS for backup storage for years and they usually come in TB arrays.

This NAS box is essencially a 1.6 TB RAID config disc array..



Anyway... Moores law is about to be broken so hold on to your hats, it's going to be one hell of a ride!!

All the best people,

NeoN HaZe.

heh my first computer was a 486 dx 33mhz... now THAT was kick-ass back in the day

I think it was well over £1200 GBP

Though now you can buy it for about £550 GBP

Froogle: - LaCie 1TB Drive

All the best,

One hour of uncompressed Ultra High Definition Video (UHDV) consumes approximately 11.5 terabytes of data.

The U.S. Library of Congress has claimed that "as of December 31, 2005, the Library has collected more than 40 terabytes of data." (2006-12-28).

uhdv?

first time i heared about it

after looking at wikipedia it seems interesting but still quite some time in the future before we will use it.

I bought my first computer back in 1998. It was a Gateway 450 MHz Pentium 3 with 64 megs of ram and a 13.6 gig hard drive. At the time I was impressed with its specs. But I still remember when the 500 megabyte hard drives came out. I thought they were huge. most programs today are larger than that. It's simply amazing just how far the tech has gone in such a short time.

UHDV! omg


i remember when i thought a 512mb hd was massive. i welcome massive storage really, id love to be able to backup my dvds onto a hd without worrying about space requirements.

for archive reasons the bigger the better
and just imagine the amount of porn you could store on a 1tb drive

Wow 1TB, it might fit all my porn in there.
Only joking, but it's great love it man, oneday we can fit the whole of the CD and film collections in without having to buy DVD and CD racks that take up the whole room.
Been waiting for this for years, all information in one hardrive, but I guess you need a USB 3 to transfer it all and 1000X write speed to actually do it quickly. Cool stuff, I did hear about this a while back on the BBC.

Dell made a pc with a 1 TB hard drive last year...

Haze, if I'm not mistaken, those LaCie NAS boxes had 2 drives in them.

What we're talking about here is 1 single disk that can hold 1TB, which, when plugged into the LaCie housing would give you a 2TB NAS box.

From the tech thats already ready (in some cases almost 2 years ready) and the stuff thats currently in R&D, I'm seeing 25 to maybe even 50TB single unit storage devices hit the market before 2010.

The biggest boost you'll see happen in the next year or 2 will be RAM size and speed simply blowing your mind.

In some cases you'll see technology developed for the RAM market being implemented as HDD technology, because you can have 128GB of RAM on a single stick with a speed rivaling on-dye cache chips.

IBM tapped out the tech for statefull MRAM almost 2 years ago, which would be absolutely perfect for both high speed and high capacity RAM and for hyperspeed and "Workdrive" size HDD storage capacity.

Other then that great advancements are being made in using optics in computer chips.

A chinees R&D firm has developed a substance that transports light a multitude (think it was around 30x) of times better then glass fibre.
A US company is developing techniques for using lab grown diamonds as conductor materials in chips.


Great thing about using diamonds as a conductor/semiconductor component in chips is that they don't only conduct electricity very well, but they also transfer heat extremely well.
Their hardness makes the products made with them extremely durably and heavy duty.

Internet connection speeds are also going to boom and would've boomed already if the US wasn't being such an arse by making the future of the Internet look so grim at every corner.
