According to our online source (via chilehardware), Seagate is prepping its 1Tb Barracuda for release.

Seagate would not confirm or deny the expectation of a new 7200.11 series this morning. Seagate representatives responded to our inquiries stating, "We already stated earlier this year that we would have the 1TB drive before the second half of this year."

Spanish-language site Chilehardware countered Seagate's announcement with specifications of the 11th generation Seagate Barracuda drive, which it listed as follows :

* 1 Terabyte capacity
* 7200RPM
* SATA 3.0Gbps interface
* Perpendicular recording
* 16MB of buffer
* 4 platters
* 8 heads

Hitachi Global Storage and Seagate both released 1TB hard drive promises within hours of each other last January. It'll certainly be interesting to see who delivers on their word first.
