Seagate announced a 3.0TB version of its Barracuda XT high performance line of desktop hard drives.
You can check out all of the specs here.
What separates this product from the rest of the 3.0TB pack is that it is “Industry’s Easiest To Deploy” as the press release states. For the past year Seagate’s website andblogs have been talking about the issue of breaking the 2.1TB limitation:
Back in the early 1980s, no one could fathom a hard drive approaching even 1TB, so limiting the logical block address (LBA) range to 2.1TB was thought to be more than adequate. As a result, operating systems, BIOS controllers, host interface drivers and device drivers have used the same basic limitation of 2.1TB.
