The new DiamondMax 10 hard drive from Maxtor Corp. features native command queuing (NCQ), the company's proprietary dual-processor technology, and a new 16MB buffer to deliver "unparalleled speeds compared to traditional 7,200rpm drives in their class."

Maxtor said that this unique set of features, coupled with their latest firmware technology, allows the drive to self-balance system workloads for more efficient hard drive operations, which helps consumers run multiple applications at the same time.

Based on an integrated, single-chip native SATA solution, the new 7,200rpm drives are offered in capacities of up to 300GB and are suitable for storing high-resolution images, multimedia content and personal and business information. Target consumers include multimedia PC users, graphic artists, system integrators and white-box builders.

According to Stacey Lund, the company's executive director for marketing, "We have received positive responses from customers and channel partners around the world, which is a testament to their confidence in our ability to deliver products that blend value, innovative storage technology and reliability."

The DiamondMax 10 SATA drives are already shipping today, with DiamondMax 10 parallel ATA/133 drives scheduled to begin shipment at the end of Q3 2004.
