The folks over at Sharky Extreme had a chance to interview Joni Clark, Seagate's PC/Mobile Product Marketing Manager. So, will we ever see a 10K/15K RPM SATA Drive to compete with Western Digital's Raptor?
"Joni Clark: On December 21, 2005, the Boards of Seagate and Maxtor announced that they unanimously approved a definitive merger agreement under which Seagate will acquire Maxtor in an all stock transaction. The combination will build on Seagate's foundation as the premier global hard disc drive company providing enhanced operating scale and key resources to drive product innovation, maximize manufacturing efficiency, and realize significant cost synergies. Leveraging increased scale with Seagate's product platform strategy, the combined company will be well-positioned to deliver to customers a more compelling, diverse set of products quickly and at more competitive prices."
