    Sounds interesting, as I'm all for increasing HDD capacities, but would there be a significant cost difference to use the graphene?

    the death throes of the HDD merket are interesting but SSDs are already rapidly surpassing them even in higher capacities. What other purposes can these surfaces be put to?

    An 8TB Sata SSD using QLC is a little more expensive than an 18TB Ironwolf Pro (£630 vs £560).

    That and QLC has worrying performance and longevity characteristics. If you want a sata ssd with speed and longevity, you're looking at only 4TB for £640.

    Sure you get speed and raw throughput with an SSD but SSDs still have a very long way to go to beat HDDs for large scale storage operations.

    When the article focuses on COCS that are harder and better suited for use with lubricant for reduced friction, you may want to rethink your question!

    Did Bernard Manning have a hand in writing this <strike>filth</strike> article?

    If I was thinking of building a media server, I'd use higher capacity HDDs instead of SSDs. Mainly because it's simply cheaper for the capacities involved. Graphene seems to be useful in many different areas, it certainly doesn't surprise me it copes well with heat.

    This and use something like zfs for data security if you need it
    Old puter - still good enuff till I save some pennies!
