Designed for desktop, PC computing, gaming and storage applications, where performance, capacity and reliability are critical, these drives support 7,200rpm operation and each feature a 6Gb SATA interface.
Key to the elevated performance delivered by the P300 HDD is the SMR technology. Here overlapped tracks enable higher data density, so only the required magnetic surface is needed for correct reading. This is advantageous compared to CMR, where each track has to be separated by a small distance. Consequently, the SMR approach allows higher capacities to be attained within the same magnetic area as a CMR drive, leading to a lower TCO. The cache-architecture means that random re-writing issues can be mitigated.
The 2TB P300 high spin model incorporates a 256MB buffer, so that a sustained transfer rate up to 210MB/s  can be provided, which is a 19% increase in data transfer speed compared to the company’s conventional P300 desktop PC HDD series. These figures make the P300 drives a choice for addressing growing desktop computing demands, as well as web applications, gaming and data archiving work.
The P300 2TB HDD will be available in 3Q22.
 3.5-inch means the form factor of HDDs. It does not indicate a drive’s physical size.
 Definition of capacity: 1TB = 1 trillion bytes, but storage capacity actually available may vary depending on operating environment and formatting. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.
 1MB is calculated as 1,048,576 bytes (2 to the 20th power), and 1GB is calculated as 1,073,741,824 bytes (2 to the 30th power).
