Seagate Announces Momentus XT Solid State Drive

Seagate today announced it is now shipping its Momentus XT, touting it as the world’s fastest 2.5-inch laptop PC hard drive to distribution channels, VARs and system builders, in India. Combining SSD-like performance with the massive capacity and much lower cost of HDDs, the Momentus XT drive features Adaptive Memory – a new technology from Seagate that learns and optimizes the drive’s performance to each user by moving frequently used information into the flash memory for faster access. The Momentus XT solid state hybrid drive boots up to 100 percent faster than traditional 5400RPM drives, the mainstream spin speed for laptop PCs. Adaptive Memory technology uses algorithms designed to learn and anticipate the users’ needs.

In India, the Momentus XT drive is now shipping in capacities of 250GB, 320GB and 500GB at MSRPs of Rs 6,800, Rs 7,400 and Rs 8,100 respectively.
