IBM unveils record-capacity drives

IBM has unveiled two disk drives that it claims set new records for data storage.

The 7,200 rpm Deskstar 75GXP drive for desktop computers holds 75 gigabytes of data, equal to “the data contained in a stack of documents 20 times taller than the Washington Monument,” and more than 10 times the capacity of drives found in the average home PC, the company said.

The Deskstar 40GV, which runs at 5,400 rpm, holds 40 gigabytes of data, and set a new areal density record of 14.3 billion bits per square inch.
