image for Seagate Will Ship 18TB and 20TB Hard Drives in 2020

Seagate is set to increase the amount of storage it offers in a hard drive next year with not one, but two higher capacity drives.

As AnandTech reports, Seagate has confirmed it plans to ship an 18TB hard drive in the first half of 2020 followed by a 20TB drive in the second half of the year.

The 18TB drive will use the same nine-platter design seen in the existing 16TB Exos drive and uses conventional magnetic recording (CMR).

However, it's a different story for the 20TB drive.

Seagate is set to move from CMR to SMR for the 20TB drive, which stands for shingled magnetic recording.

However, some of the company's customers are receiving heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) versions of those 16TB drives, which should help Seagate perfect its manufacturing process before it inevitably also comes to 20TB drives.

Purchasing an 18TB or 20TB hard drive next year certainly won't be cheap if current pricing is anything to go by. »
