Barracudas with Fricken Lazer Beams

Sat Feb 08, 2020 7:32 am

Well guys, it looks like we're almost there: https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2020/02 ... 020/?amp=1

Seagates with HAMR laser technology coming to retail this year.

All I keep thinking is this:

Well, not sharks or even angry seabass, but perhaps some Barracudas with lasers attached to their heads. :lol:

If it's true, it's better to change our profession before one of these laser-guided drives starts failing ... :lol: :lol:

Maybe, maybe not. At least it means that HDDs might be able to stick around another 7-8 years before SSDs are cheaper per Tb. And, it's another new way that Seagates can fail in mass numbers. I'd bet one of the first generations of Seagate HAMR drives will be the new Grenada cash cow.
