The race for biggest storage drives is still on, as of just last year we saw Seagate announce a 10TB hard drive, and now the company is back with an announcement of an even larger 16TB Hard Drive which is in pipeline for release in 2018, according to Geek.com.
While we’ve seen similar and even dramatically bigger SSDs like theb Seagate 60TB solid state drive, the 16TB hard drive would be the single largest magnetic disk drive ever built, if it actually makes it to market.
Seagate is noting that the 16TB behemoth would still be a regular 3.5-inch drive, meaning you’ll likely be able to use it in a regular desktop. And while it’s still a bit early to have any idea of the price, the 10TB model from last year ran for $534.99, so expect something similar at least in that range.
If you can’t wait until 2018 to get you hands on the 16TB of the behemoth storage space to get it into your computer, don’t you worry buddy there’s always Samsung’s $10,000 15.36TB SSD, which will also theoretically fit into a standard home computer.
