Researchers from York University were part of an international team that found it could record information using only heat instead of a magnetic medium, something previously thought impossible that could also make computers more energy efficient.

‘This revolutionary method allows the recording of terabytes — thousands of gigabytes — of information per second, hundreds of times faster than present hard-drive technology. As there is no need for a magnetic field, there is also less energy consumption.’

The multinational team of scientists included researchers from Spain, Switzerland, Ukraine, Russia, Japan and the Netherlands. Its work is published in the February edition of Nature Communications.


SSDs eat your heart out....

As a comparison the fastest SSDs available right now can "only" write around 600MBs/second.

There are 1,048,576 Megabytes in a Terabyte...

That is what?... 1,747 times faster than the fastest SSDs on the market right now? (early morning math sucks...)

In other words, you could perform 1,747 tasks in the time it takes you to do one per second now...

Look at it this way...

If you have a 500GB hard drive... you could copy the whole thing in the time it takes you to click your mouse button.

Now, if internet speeds were in the same ballpark we would be in business!

They can be, though it requires changes to a countries infrastructure.

Can you correct that link, please? I would love to read the article. Thanks.

Done. The URL button seems to be acting up for me tonight, sorry.

hi op

amazing isnt it
i found it amazing how normal hard drives work wen i done a course
magnetic field reversals to code 1/0 (flux reversals)
and now the field has been iliminated
the potential is endless

By using heat?

Better be a super cool environment, because heat is the enemy of the pc world.

*read article time*

whattha!


However, the researchers demonstrated that the positions of the magnetic poles can be inverted by an ultrashort heat pulse, harnessing the power of much stronger internal forces of magnetic media.


Man and I thought making the old c64 floppy disk controller play music was neat...

they're going to ruin out stuff guys... RUN!!

haha
yeh the old 64
we used to have arguments at school, which is best c64 or speccy
the ocean loader music is brill,its on utube
takes me back years lol

Think they also have to rebuild and adjust the motherboard , can't imagine motherboards now existing can handle that speed.?.....

And I think its even faster then the internal memory? so you could almost say this HDD is multipurpose ....

Can't imagine these will be used for consumers in short time..

im thinking that if theres no field
then theres no need for field shielding
maybe this could knock a fair bit of weight of the next spacecraft
maybe
just a wee thought

Haha no I meant the 'attack' that you play on your c64 with w cbm drive, and it'd play music by vibrating the heads to the point of killing it..


I did it once on an old cbm drive and the usic was clear as day, but the drive after that was up snickers creek


I really miss those days, the old 300 baud modem, the bbs's, the 30 mins a day, waiting till mid night to get back on..

haha

oh Im old...


LORD.. Legend of the red Dragon.. came a few years after, but had ANSII graphics of it's own style.. groovy times man.. I'd pay the ferryman to go back 30 years in an instant.. bugger youtube and twitter.. lol

Nothing like playing the old gems with pixels the size of nickles...

I still remember in the early 90's when QBasic came out and everyone thought they were the next Henry Roberts...

Sheesh, you're forgetting about LUNATIC, and Trade Wars 2002.

Shame on you


This is also amazing news. The slowest point of any computing system is always the harddrive because of the mechanical parts. Servers, for example, generally have 3, 6, 12 and 15 drive bays running in RAID so all drives are active when data is being seeked.. This distributes the I/O load across multiple drives to improve performance.

I wonder what kind of numbers we could get out of a 15 drive SAN with this technology.

Also - It looks like 2011/2012 is going to go down in technology as the year of advancement. This is pretty fantastic in addition to the 3D transistors that came out last year and are being put into new Intel processors this year.

The Future of torrent downloading! lol

Expect fast Broadband, Fast hard drives, Huge hard drives, but yet you cant copy anything onto them under ACTA laws.

lol i remember getting 'Rise of the triads' and it came on 7 3.5" floppy disks
but then i also remember when 16mb of ram was enough and a 10 Mhz cpu was cutting edge

Yes a new hard drive, coming to a store near you soon, only $5000. LOL
All joking aside, we won't be seeing these for consumer use for a while. They have to mass produce new system boards and the such that can handle this. And by that time, they'll have a hard drive that will be 2 -4 times faster I imagine.
Good find OP, love how computers are getting better (all be it scary at times). I wonder what else will get better this year.
