Seagate's Mach.2 Technology Doubles HDD Performance

Seagate’s multi-actuator technology (Mach.2) is a simple concept that doubles the performance of a hard drive by using two actuators. In fact, the company has already developed drives with multiple actuators in the past, but they weren’t economically viable due to higher component costs. Now the company has perfected the method of manufacturing and devices are in the wild.
