Seagate has a new 3.5-inch hybrid drive

Written by Fudzilla staff

7200rpm, 8GB of SSD cache

Seagate’s got something very nice for desktop enthusiasts on a budget, the world’s first 3.5-inch hybrid drive.

 

Hybrid drives, or SSHDs, are nothing new, but so far they’ve been limited to the mobile 2.5-inch form factor. This resulted in somewhat higher prices per gigabyte and in many cases they were limited to 5400rpm.

The new ST1000DX001 is a 7200rpm unit, with 64MB of cache and 8GB of SSD cache. It is a SATA 6Gbps drive and it comes with a three year warranty.

So far we’ve only managed to find a single listing, which puts the price at 115 euro. Not cheap by any means, but we believe it should end up significantly cheaper than 2.5-inch SSHDs once it hits retail.

What’s more, it will also be available in 2TB, as the ST1000DX001. We don't have a price for the 2TB unit. At the moment there are no 2TB 2.5-inch hybrids. Seagate currently offers a single 2.5-inch SSHD in 1TB, but it’s a 5400rpm unit.
