Hitachi Deskstar 7K3000 does 3TB of storage space

Hitachi’s Deskstar 7K3000 is the first 3.5-inch 7200RPM hard drive that will sport 3TB of storage space, not to mention being Hitachi’s first drive that will carry a 6Gbps SATA interface. Apart from that, this diminutive five-platter storage monstrosity will cram in a 64MB cache buffer, sipping 6.8W of power when idle while coming in an eco-friendly, halogen-free design. While we do not know how much it will cost nor when will it be released, it should retail for somewhere around $320 – not too shabby at $100 per TB, eh?
