Toshiba Corp. on Monday introduced the industry’s highest-performing hard disk drive in 2.5”/7mm form-factor. The new Toshiba MQ01ACF drives offer up to 500GB capacity and boast with 7200rpm spindle speed.

The MQ01ACF series is Toshiba’s first 7278rpm, 2.5” product with a 7mm height. The series offers two models: the MQ01ACF050 with a recording capacity of 500GB and the 320GB MQ01ACF032. A maximum internal transfer rate of 1850Mb/s is realized by improvement to linear recording density and the 7278rpm rotational speed. Implementation of the Serial ATA-6Gb/s interface also boosts data transfer rates over those of current models.

The slim Toshiba MQ01ACF series is suitable for laptops and ultra-thin notebooks that require relatively high performance, but which should remain cost-efficient and thus cannot take advantage of solid-state drives.

Toshiba did not reveal when the new hard disk drives will actually become available and what PCs will be first to take advantage of them.
