One big step in hybrid hard drives: Seagate Momentus XT shipments break millions

One big step in hybrid hard drives: Seagate Momentus XT shipments break millions Seagate announced today that cumulative shipments of Momentus XT, a new hybrid hard drive designed for notebooks, have exceeded 1 million units since it was released more than a year ago.

The Momentus XT hybrid hard disk was launched in the spring of 2010. It has 4GB NAND flash memory on the basis of the traditional 2.5-inch 7200-rpm mechanical hard disk and incorporates Seagate’s own Adaptive Memory technology. In addition, there are 32MB large-capacity caches and dual hard disks like HDD+SSD. In a combined manner, the hard disk is responsible for the large-volume data that is not frequently accessed, and the flash memory is responsible for the small-capacity data that is frequently accessed, thereby realizing acceleration.

Seagate claims that this design is up to 50% faster than a traditional 5400-rpm 2.5-inch hard drive.

IDC research director John Rydning said that shipments of more than one million units to Seagate’s Momentus XT is just the beginning of hybrid hard drives. It is estimated that approximately 25% of new computers worldwide will be equipped with such hybrid hard disks by 2015.

The notebooks currently equipped with Seagate Momentus XT hybrid hard drives include:

- ASUS Player Kingdom G73JH
- Toshiba Satellite E305-S1990X

The brand machine has:
- Dell Alienware M17X/M18X Gaming Notebook - Dell Optiplex 990 Workstation Online Retailer has:
