Fujitsu ha annunciato la realizzazione di una nuova linea di hard drive siglata MHZ2 BJ: si tratta di soluzioni da 2.5" e con capacità di memorizzazione variabile fino a 320Gb.
I dischi MHZ2 BJ di Fujitsu risultano essere ad oggi i primi al mondo ad esibire una velocità di rotazione pari a 7200RPM. In accordo al produttore i nuovi dischi sono finalizzati all'impiego con i notebook ad alte prestazioni oppure con i desktop compatti, anch'essi high-performance.
L'interfaccia con il mondo è implementata mediante lo standard Serial ATA 3.0 Gb/s; i primi dischi della linea MHZ2 BJ saranno disponibili sul mercato a fine Giugno.

Tokyo, March 24, 2008 — Fujitsu Limited today announced its new MHZ2 BJ series of 2.5" hard disk drives that feature a rotational speed
of 7200 RPM and capacities up to 320 GB(1)Sales of the new series will begin at the end of June 2008. The new series is designed for use in high-performance PCs, such
as high-end notebook computers and compact desktops.
The MHZ2 BJ series requires only 2.3 W of power for read and write operations, ranking it among the most power-efficient drives
in its class. The series is one of many new products announced as part of Fujitsu's Green Policy Innovation initiative, unveiled
in December 2007 to promote energy-efficient products and services as a way to help customers lower their ecological footprint.
As PCs offer an increasing number of sophisticated functions, there is an increasing need for high-capacity hard disk drives
with improved processing capabilities.
But with growing worldwide concern over global warming and other environmental problems, there is also a demand for hard disk
drives that consume less electricity.
Fujitsu has responded to these needs with hard disk drives that feature a rotational speed of 7200 RPM and capacities up to
320 GB, double the capacity of previous models. In addition, the series also supports the Serial ATA 3.0 Gb/s interface(2), which has been rapidly adopted throughout the industry, for high-speed data transfers.
As an environmentally friendly product, these hard disk drives use 2.3 W for read and write operations, ranking them among
the most power-efficient 2.5" HDDs in the industry. They are also manufactured in compliance with the EU's RoHS Directive(3), which limits the use of hazardous substances.
Capitalizing on the vast experience and reputation for reliability that Fujitsu has accumulated through over 40 years of HDD
development, the new series delivers the superior quality that customers have come to expect from Fujitsu.
