Hitachi increases hard drive capacity fivefold

Hitachi could potentially achieve a revolutionary breakthrough by increasing hard drive capacity by up to five times, thanks to a new technology that crams in 2.5 Terabits of data per square inch. This is made possible based on a heat-assisted magnetic recording system, which is much more potent compared to current perpendicular magnetic recording technology which achieves 1 terabits per square inch density. No idea on when Hitachi will release such hard drives equipped with this new technology, but if they do, you’ll have even more excuse not to delete older but yet unwatched downloaded videos on your computer.
