The GAX HDD family differs from the GAS series in a number of parameters. GAX drives have a higher spindle rotation speed (5,400rpm against 4,200rpm) and a larger cache-buffer. Desktop HDDs may envy its size – 16MB! The capacity of our model is 40GB. The drive uses four heads and two platters with a data density of 34.7Gbit per square inch. The drive supports ATA-5 interface and uses fluid-dynamic bearings, just like HDDs of the previous family.
As you may guess by its marking, the second drive from the GAX family has a capacity of 60GB. It is achieved by using four heads and two platters, with a data density of 49.8Gbit per square inch. Other parameters coincide with those of the previous model.
