The Barracuda XT has five platters with an areal density of 488Gb/inĀ², marking an improvement over the Deskstar's 411Gb/inĀ². Seagate's drive spins at 7200RPM and sports 64MB of cache as well as the SATA 6Gb/s interface -- though transfers peak at 149MB/s.

    Windows XP x64 can handle it, but who in the hell would run that on their system? :)

    I ran XPx64 for a long time, and without any hitch or issue ......until 7 came around :D

    I run XP64 with a 4gig gpt partition on no problem and I can see absolutely no reason to down grade my system to 7 at all!
