    Seagate launches 'world's fastest' hard drive - the 2.5in Savvio 15K

    Seagate has launched what it claims is the world's fastest hard drive. The new 15,000rpm drive, the Savvio 15K, is an addition to the Savvio enterprise series.

    Savvio SAS (Serial-Attached SCSI) drives are in a 2.5in form factor - a platform that Seagate pioneered - and the Savvio 15K is available right now. Fancy an upgrade to your server? This wouldn't be a bad place to start.

    it kinda is, serially attached scsi

    SCSI drives like this are aimed at a market that demand reliability and perfomance. They also have more money than most home users. It will take a while before this sort of thing filters down to meer mortal level, i wouldn't like to guess how long it will take!

    the noise is another big factor - home market has been sitting on 7,200 rpm for a decade now, dispite server market having 10k and up the whole time. i doubt it'll ever make its way down..

    By the time this kinda performance filters down (if ever) I'm guessing solid state will rule. At first you'll get a machine with flash memory for OS and whatnot, and a traditional hard drive for conventional storage.
