Seagate has officially launched their new FireCuda line of SSHDs

 

Seagate has officially launched their new FireCuda line of SSHDs combining Solid state storage with SMR mechanical hard drives for enhanced performance and higher capacities. 

This new line of SSDs will offer capacities of 500GB, 1TB and 2TB 2.5" drives and 1TB and 2TB 3.5" drives. The 2.5" drives will come with a drive thickness of 7mm, making this HDD suitable for almost any mobile system.  

The FireCuda line used SMR, Shingled Magnetic Recording, technology in order to increase storage capacity by up to 25% by slightly overlapping newly written magnetic tracks. SMR technology will increase drive capacity but reduce the drives write speeds, though Seagate does say that these shortcomings are more than offset by this drive's use of a 128MB DRAM Cache buffer and 8GB of MLC NAND as a Cache.

These new FireCuda drives will come in at around $100 for the 2TB model, with a 5-year warranty. This warranty is a huge upgrade over Seagate's 2-year warranty for their Barracuda consumer HDDs.

Doubtful - CUDA is an acronym whereas FireCuda is a play on their established Barracuda name (dont' get bitten by one btw)

If they were that litigious then we wouldn't have so many names like Fury (AMD GPUs, Kingston memory and storage etc) or other names that seem to come on trend for a while.

They're not competing in the same space either.Quote
