Seagate launches advanced mobile consumer drives

Over the last decade, the mobile revolution has transformed productivity, creativity and gaming. With this transformation comes the ability to store everything in the cloud. Whilst the benefits of the cloud are undeniable, technology enthusiasts, gamers and creative professionals still want – and sometimes need – to take their digitally stored content with them on the go.

Seagate, therefore, announce the availability of the 2TB FireCuda and 5TB BarraCuda mobile drives. 2TB FireCuda: Seagate claims the 2TB FireCuda represents the fastest, thinnest and lightest 2TB hard drive on the market today, using 8GB of flash to enable rapid boot times and game load speeds. Not only does it offer unmatched performance and capacity at a great price, it includes new firmware and highly sophisticated caching algorithms that continuously analyze how a system is being used. These algorithms then get to work tweaking every aspect of FireCuda’s operations so that the drive is perfectly synchronous with the unique way each user works and plays. It is called Multi-Tier Caching and would be like owning a smart car that continuously tunes itself up as it is driven – always performing at peak efficiency to suit both the driver and the task at hand.

5TB BarraCuda: The BarraCuda offers versatility, performance and trusted reliability for nearly every mobile PC compute need and application. The drive will be available in a super thin 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. Both products are based on Seagate’s breakthrough 2.5 inch 1TB introduced in January.
