Hard drive sizes have continued to grow over the years, but recently that seems to have slowed down a bit. I mean, we have 1TB drives, but there hasn't seemed to be too much more than that lately.
Now comes word that TDK has discovered a way to massively increase the storage size of hard drives.
Without getting too technical the company has discovered a way to increase the density of hard drives by roughly 50%. Currently the limit is 1TB/inch of hard disk but now the density can be 1.5 TB/inch.
Basically that means 3.5 inch hard drives (which are the size used in desktop computers) will have available sizes of 2TB, 4TB, and 6 TB.
The smaller 2.5 inch drives (used in laptops) will have 1 TB, 2 TB, and 3TB capacities.
It seems Moore's Law just keeps on rolling. Imagine a laptop with 3TB...
