Fujitsu Ltd has responded to IBM’s new 3380 disk drives with its own Facom 6425G and H drives, the larger – H – model storing 7.5Gb and having an average access time of 24.3mS, while the smaller G has average access time of 20.3mS: they both transfer data at up to 3Mbytes-per second, but using a new Facom 1700A controller will be able to transfer at the new IBM rate of 4.5Mbytes-per-second; the new drives are also more compact than the current generation, requiring 25% less floor space and measuring 38 by 38.375 by 66 high; both the drives are due to ship at the end of December and are offered at a rental rate of $5,460 a month for the H, $3,233 a month for the G; no date was given for first shipments of the high-speed 1700A controller.
