Seagate boasts that the 2TB FireCuda represents the fastest, thinnest and lightest 2TB hard drive on the market today, using 8GB of flash to enable rapid boot times and game load speeds.

It includes new firmware and sophisticated caching algorithms that continuously analyse how a system is being used.

These algorithms then get to work tweaking every aspect of FireCuda’s operations so that the drive is always synchronous with the unique way each user works and plays.

It is called Multi-Tier Caching and would be like owning a smart car that continuously tunes itself up as it is driven – always performing at peak efficiency to suit both the driver and the task at hand.

With the 5TB BarraCuda, Seagate aims to offer best-in-class versatility, performance and trusted reliability for nearly every mobile PC compute need and application.

The drive will be available in a super thin 7mm mobile or laptop upgrade design and a 15mm design for external solutions, perfect for both enthusiast builders and those that want to just plug in and get going.
