Samsung announces high-speed and capacious 2.5-inch Spinpoint MP2 hard drives
Samsung Electronics Announces 250GB Spinpoint MP2 Hard Disk Drives. The drives are made in a size of 2.5 inches and contain two platters, each of which fits 125 GB of information.
Good speed indicators for new products are provided by a high spindle speed – 7200 rpm and a large buffer volume – 16 MB. According to the manufacturer, Spinpoint MP2 hard drives are well suited for use in notebooks positioned as desktop substitutes, workstations, RAID arrays and blade servers.
Spinpoint MP2 features SATA II (3Gb / s) and Native Command Queuing (NCQ) support. To reduce noise, the manufacturer used proprietary developments – SilentSeek and NoiseGuard. Optionally, the installation of a free fall sensor is provided, which makes it possible to increase the safety of data if the hard drive is installed in a mobile PC. The Spinpoint MP2 range currently includes models ranging from 80GB to 250GB.
The start of deliveries through OEM channels is scheduled for the current month.
