Last week Seagate  quietly launched some new 4TB hard drives and they’ve already begun popping up on Newegg and Amazon. While we’ve had 4TB drives for a while, these are composed of four 1TB platters and rotated at 7200RPM, faster than the older versions which had more platters with 750GB on each one and a 5600RPM rotational speed. Sequential writes to the drive will be as high as 146MB/s and it runs on the SATA 3 interface. Seagate quotes a price of $190 and since this is a quiet launch, I expect most regions around the world already have this available.
