Samsung Electronics on Tuesday released the world' first 2TB hard disk drive (HDD) featuring three 667GB platters. Despite of record aerial density, the new drive belongs to EcoGreen family of hard drives that are designed to be power efficient and not fast.

Samsung EcoGreen F4EG in 3.5" desktop form-factor has 5200rpm spindle speed, 32MB buffer, 1.5TB or 2TB capacities, Serial ATA-300 interface as well as supports NCQ technology. Samsung yet has to publish exact specifications of the F4EG, but according to its own claims the new HDD offers 19% better in standby time performance and has 23% lower power consumption in standby mode than the previous four-disk model, the F3EG.

Samsung’s new hard drive utilizes its low noise operation technology SilentSeek and NoiseGuard to achieve quiet system operation.

At present 667GB are the largest 3.5" platters. Eventually they will enable hard disk drives that offer drives with capacities larger than 2GB.

The F4EG drive is available in 1.5TB and 2TB capacities in the United States and EU markets with a MSRP of $119.99. Initial shipment is scheduled for early September.
