Seagate keeps up focus on hybrid drives

Written by Fudzilla staff



Third generation 7mm drives coming this year


Although hard drive shipments are expected to slow down, Seagate still thinks there is money to be made in hybrid drives.

Seagate entered the hybrid drive market with the Momentus XT back in 2010 and although it was hailed as an excellent solution, combining the best of both worlds, high prices and form factor limitations prevented the Momentus XT from going mainstream.

Now the situation is slowly changing. SSD prices are tumbling and demand for hybrid drives could soar thanks to cheap ultrabooks and ultrathins, provided AMD ever gets around to launching Trinity ULV parts.

Seagate CEO Stephen Luczo announced that the company will introduce third generation hybrid drives by the end of the year and this time they will be 7mm thin, making them perfectly suited for thin and light notebooks.

Luczo also said that Gary Gentry will be rejoining Seagate as senior VP of the company’s SSD business. Gentry managed Micron’s enterprise SSD business and Seagate hopes it can deliver samples of competitive “Tier 0” products by the end of the quarter.
