Savvio

In the race to manufacture higher capacity hard drives and increase storage space for the PC, the most important element if often left out. Speed. Seeing has a hard drive is known to be one of, if not, the biggest bottleneck in the average PC, especially in laptops, it is a great idea to increase disk speed of the 2.5" hard drives. Seagate has done just that, they've created the first 15,000 RPM hard drive in 2.5" form factor which is claimed to run faster than the 3.5" 15k RPM alternative.

The new Savvio 15K is not only the world's first 2.5" hard drive with platters spinning at 15,000 RPM, Seagate also says it's 10% faster than 3.5" 15K-RPM drives, making it the world's fastest hard drive. That's a bold claim to make, but the drive's 2.5" form factor could actually help it on this front. Even with perpendicular recording, Seagate can only squeeze 36GB onto the Savvio 15K's platters. That results in fewer gigabytes per drive actuator, but it's the actuator speed that often limits performance in enterprise server environments. The fact that the Savvio 15K has less data per actuator than a 3.5" drive can actually make it faster, at least in applications that emphasize random access times rather than sequential transfer rates.

The Savvio is expected to be integrated into HP laptops by first quarter this year n 36GB and 73GB capacities. The 2.5" form factor will yield higher performance, lower power usage, and a greater life expectancy.

Yea like, its the normal thing to say now. Sorta like OWNED. If you woulda gone back like 10 years and said owned people would look at you funny. Now, its just normal.

normal refers to a lack of significant deviation from the average


The average person doesn't say pwned

Even the average 'gamer' doesn't use the mis-spelled word.

I guess you must care as you've taken the time to write so much on the subject :confused: :rolleyes:

:p :o

It's not really "the same as owned" either as it isn't even a word and has no definition. (which is why this thread was started)

My point (as to saying who cares) was who cares? If you dont say it then fine (type it) if so cool. To me and all my friends (and i supposed family too) owned is the same as pwned. No real deffenition, no real meaning, just something to say when somebdy gets owned. No questions asked.
