Hard drive manufacturer Maxtor has licensed IBM's magneto-resistive (MR) technology to create an 11.5Gbytes hard drive - a capacity usually made impossible by the operating system.
The device has access speed of 9ms and will hit the streets in March priced at #299.
The 3.5-inch DiamondMax 2880 drive comes in both EIDE and UltraDMA flavours and offers a 256Kbytes cache buffer, low power consumption, a three year guarantee and error correction logic.
It also includes proprietary software that allows the drive to beat the usual 8.4Gbytes limit imposed by operating systems and the system Bios.
Other hard drive manufacturers are now scrabbling t match Maxtor's drive.
The product will cost an estimated #299 in the UK, and is distributed through Karma and RK, amongst others.
