    assuming liner density of HAMR increases, you will see somewhere close to 400MB/s sustained read/write

    It's too bad that this feat won't help much with load times since it will still have the hdd-specific access time latency.

    Yeah pretty much. Although I like the potential. Take me for example, I have a gigabit internet connection but my old hard-drive absolutely can't write at that speed. Highest I've seen is ~80 MB/s and then small files started getting downloaded and it basically grinded to a halt. I wouldn't mind a 400 MB/s hdd because it's not that feasible to get an SSD just for downloads.

    As long as the pricing is okay of course.

    true, i know the feels when i extract massive amounts of tiny files, though they may be just afew hundred MBs in size, its take a good few minutes. I really want to see a HDD with a good sized ssd attached to it, like 128GB atleast. that would be rather interesting. sequential writes are not a problem.

    We have SSD's to thank for these incredibly quick and massive storage space upgrades to HDD. HDD manufacturers have to make these increases or HDD's will just become extinct even faster. It is still going to be awhile before ssd's can totally replace hdd. I store bluray disc images on my hdd 20-50GB per image and it would be totally impractical to do that on ssd's. Media files such as audio, video, and photo is what will keep hdd's relevant.
