With 78% improvement internal transfer rates than previous versions
Toshiba has unveiled new HDDs capable of delivering 200GB (MK2060GSC) and 100GB (MK1060GSC) storage capacities in a single-platter design.
All drives are compliant with RoHS regulation and halogen free. They achieve chlorine and bromine concentrations below 900ppm and a combined overall total below 1,500ppm.
According to Toshiba, the MK2060GSC, with a rotational speed of 4,200RPM and serial ATA interface, has been designed to target telematics and infotainment applications. Technical benefits include approximately 78% improvement in internal transfer rates, compared to the previous series, a faster seek time of 12 milliseconds and quiet ‘silent seek’ operation of 23dB.
The MK2060GSC has been designed to operate in an altitude range of -300 to 5,650m and at operating temperatures of -30 to +85°C, and to deliver operating shock resistance of 2,940m/s2; and a vibration resistance of 24.5m/s2 (50-200Hz). They can operate at pressure of 495hPa (5,650m), Toshiba said.
