Samsung's SpinPoint MP1 HDD

Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd has unveiled the SpinPoint MP1 series of 7200rpm premium 2.5-inch hard drives with storage density of 200Gbyte. The MP1 series is designed for enterprise applications such as workstations, RAID servers, and blade servers.

The SpinPoint MP1 Series uses perpendicular magnetic recording, a serial ATA 3Gbps interface, and feature native command queuing for high performance. To protect the disk drive from vibration and shock, a rotary vibration controller (RVC) and an optional digital free-fall sensor have been implemented. The RVC technology, first applied to the SpinPoint MP1 series, prevents the head from leaving the track under severe vibration conditions, thereby reinforcing data reliability.

Touted to have the industry's highest maximum-density-per-disk at 100Gyte in the 7200rpm class 2.5-inch drives, the SpinPoint MP1 series comes in 80-, 120- 160- and 200Gbyte capacities with a supporting 8- and 16Mbyte cache memory. Mass production is scheduled for May, directly following sample availability early that month.
