G-Technology’s new G-Drive Q is an external drive solution with four connectivity interfaces: FireWire 400, FireWire 800; USB 2.0 and eSATA. G-Drive Q integrates Hitachi’s new 7k500 SATA II Deskstar hard drives for storage capacities up to 500 GB.
The G-Drive Q comes in a stylish, all aluminum enclosure and is equipped with Oxford’s 924 bridge chip combined with high performance SATA II drives. The performance is way beyond USB 2.0.
The G-Drive Q will become available in September 2005, with list price starting at US$229. Pre-orders are now being taken by G-Tech and authorized resellers. The press release is available from the site but not much more information is available yet.
