Seagate has announced the Momentus XT, a 2.5-inch laptop-use solid state hybrid drive which combines solid state memory with traditional hard disk.
The Momentus XT has a 7,200rpm spin speed, 4GB of solid state memory, and Seagate’s Adaptive Memory technology to deliver “world’s fastest” hard drive performance. According to the manufacturer, it boots the operating system “up to 100% faster” than standard 5,400rpm notebook HDDs and “sets new benchmarks for real-world system performance for notebooks and gaming systems”.
