Looks Like Seagate is Learning from Samsung Already

Not only will Seagate be holding 40% of the HDD market, but the acquisition of the hard drive business from Samsung allowed them to turn their 1TB/platter prototypes into reality. The new Seagate drives have an areal-density of about 78GB per square inch, thus allowing the 1TB platters but they won’t be going as far as Samsung would have intended by packing four of those into a single drive. Instead Seagate will be introducing this tech in a 3TB external GoFlex drive, however there are no word on what specs these units will bear. For reference, the Samsung’s prototypes were 5,400rpm, had a 32MB cache, and was SATA 6Gbps compliant.
