Seagate announced the availability of the 2TB FireCuda and 5TB BarraCuda mobile consumer hard drives.
The 2TB FireCuda, which the company claims as the “fastest, thinnest and lightest 2TB hard drive on the market today” uses 8GB of flash to enable rapid boot times and game load speeds.
The drive comes with new firmware and highly sophisticated caching algorithms that continuously analyze how a system is being used. With its Multi-Tier Caching capability, the algorithms get to work tweaking every aspect of FireCuda’s operations so that the drive is always perfectly synchronous with the unique way each user works and plays.
The 5TB BarraCuda drive will be available 7mm mobile or laptop upgrade design and a 15mm design for external solutions, perfect for both enthusiast builders and those that want to just plug in and get going, Seagate said.
