"WD shows off market-ready MAMR tech for monster hard drives"


"Western Digital showed off a a prototype hard drive with a potentially
revolutionary new energy-assisted magnetic recording technology called
microwave-assist magnetic recording (MAMR). The company says the new
tech could potentially be ready for market by the end of 2019, and it
could allow the manufacture of 40 TB hard drives by 2025. For context,
WD is now currently offering 14 TB drives to datacenter customers and 12
TB drives are just entering the general market."

Spin Torque Oscillator ?

I feel like this is an April 1st news release.
