The eco-friendly Barracuda LP HDD from the Seagate stables has added an extra green to its outlook. Presented with low power storage capabilities, the new HDD comes across as top-of-the line eco-friendly 3.5-inch desktop drives.
The new hard drive has been offered incorporating Seagate’s SmartAlign technology, which in turns makes the most of the new 4K sector formatting standard. The SmartAlign solution also helps simplify installation too.
Being offered in capacities of 1TB, 1.5TB and 2TB, the new HDD has started shipping globally.
Seagate has, in fact, brought forth added levels of efficiency and enhanced performance. Features claim that the new green range of products would gain a lot due to higher aerial density and silent mode of operation that returns around 2.6 bels.
This apart, the drives also claim sustained data throughput of up to 144MB per second.
Significant about the new HDD is that more than 70 percent of the materials used in its making can be recycled. Seagate has also thrown in a SATA 6Gb/s interface and 64MB cache, so as to add to the performance levels.
