6Gbps hard drives coming

Seagate working together with AMD debuted a brand new faster hard drive. Previous SATA architecture topped out at 3Gbps which up to now, had been pretty damn fast, but now it has the potential to be doubled. Blazing fast speed for data centers all over the world. No need to switch to expensive solid state drives (SSD). Perhaps this is the reason why Seagate never bothered to jump on the SSD bandwagon. The R&D department earned their paychecks and probably kept their jobs with this news. With the recent firmware issues (forced them to offer free data recovery), SSD advancement, and poor economy, this is definitely good news for the hard drive maker. Western Digital is going green, Seagate is going faster. Perhaps SSD’s will only find a niche market with netbooks and ultra portable laptops.
