Re: Are conventional hard drives nearing their limits?...

Of course there will be the end. The same as for CPUs and Moors law. I think for CPU 10nm is the end (and they are going to have 22nm this year) because being that small electrons will just travel sideways, I forgot what the technical term is.

Same goes for HDs, MR heads can only read and write to a certain density and after that magnetic field is going to go astray.

More likely today's technology is simply going to be replaced with something revolutionary for CPU and HD in about 10 years from now.

The only time a smaller sensor with the same pixel count is superior to a larger sensor (aka higher pixel density) is when you are focal-length limited.
