Seagate this week announced a brand new lineup of solid state drives for 2018. The hard drive juggernaut hasn’t really been doing much in the SSD space for the last few years. They announced the Seagate 600 series family back in 2014, after just finishing off an acquisition of LSI for their Sandforce controller IP. The 600 series was a tough, but fast drive for professional use. The new Barracuda lineup is intended to compete directly with Western Digital Green, Kingston A400, and Mushkin Source drive families.
