WD has some new drives. How are they cramming more data per platter diks in there? It's not clear if they use the WHAMR or something.
?? The actual NAME of the product contains the recording technology ??It's not clear if they use the WHAMR or something.
You just listed it in your previous post. HAMR, MAMR are types of energy assisted recording. Heat (energy) Assisted Magnetic Recording; Microwave (energy) Assisted Magnetic Recording.What has happened to the momentum? Here we are in 2023 and still at only 22TB. Where is the HAMR, MAMR, etc.?
My guess is all the tricks to increase density cost so much to implement that we end up with the same cost per TB. All most end users care about is cost per TB.Why don't we have drives in the streets though? HAMR has been discussed for ages.
I feel that if I buy a bunch of drives to replace all the old ones they will suddenly announce much bigger drives.
