Seagate 3TB HDD to land this year

The rumor mill is working today and churning out new fodder about Seagate. According to the rumor, the storage firm has a new 3TB HDD on its roadmap for this year. Seagate already has 2TB drives like the Constellation ES that we talked about in February.

The new 3TB drive is going to be part of that same Constellation ES family and will have a 6Gbit/s SAS interface and replace the Barracuda ES. The 3TB drive will be for the enterprise class and presumably spin at 7200 rpm.

I would expect that we would see a consumer version of the drive pushing 3TB as well. Yet another Seagate rumor has the firm readying a new 2.5-inch Savvio drive with as much as 750GB of 10000rpm goodness.
