Upping the Capacity Game
Seagate’s hard disk drive division has upped their game with the new Exos X16 16TB. Capacity ramped up faster than the competition since the 8TB models came to market. The 16TB Exos X16 uses Helium technology which allows for 9 x 1.8TB (approx.) CMR (conventional magnetic recording) platters together with 18 TDMR heads to be crammed into a 3.5in format drive with a height of just 26.11mm. The drive has a spindle speed of 7,200rpm and is equipped with 256MB of cache. The official transfer rates for the Exos X16 are up to 261MB/s while the average latency is 4.16ms.
