New Product: Samsung’s Spinpoint M8 Drive Enters Mass Production

The 500-gigabyte-per-platter, 1 TB internal hard disk drive is designed for use in mobile computing applications and offers increased operation speeds and power demand reductions.

Samsung Electronics Company’s new 500-gigabyte-per-platter, 1 TB internal hard disk drive has hit the channel.

The Spinpoint M8 drive from Samsung is for use in mobile computing applications, like notebooks. The form factor supports the 9.5mm height needed to comfortably fit in mobile computing applications.

Samsung’s Spinpoint M8 consists of two 500 gigabyte platters, providing users with 1 TB of storage space. The high density was achieved by utilizing advanced format technology (AFT), which raises the data storage density per unit area.

The dual-platter Spinpoint M8 operates on a 3-gigabits-per-second SATA interface, providing an 8 MB buffer memory. It also incorporates EcoSeek and NoiseGuard features for minimal noise levels.

According to Samsung, a reduced number of components, such as disks and heads, also contributes to an approximately seven percent increase in operation speeds and eight percent decline in power demand.

Samsung’s C.H. Lee, vice president of storage strategic marketing, says the new Spinpoint M8 line “supports the ongoing growth curve for high-density data storage densities, especially as it raises the bar to exceed terabyte density levels in the mobile computing space.”

Spinpoint M8 is currently in mass production and available worldwide with the 1TB drive at an MSRP of $129.
