Maxtor have announced a new range of hard drives that offer up to 300gb storage with a 16mb cache.

The new 16mb cache size should make these drives noticibly faster at loading programs and large files than other comparable hard drives.

The DiamondMax 10 series has the standard 7,200RPM speed for desktop hard drives and comes in 6 sizes: 80GB, 120GB, 160GB, and 200GB (with 8mb cache), and 250GB and 300GB (with the new 16mb cache).

The drives come in 2 versions: one with the new SATA (Serial ATA) interface (available now with the 300gb version costing around $250), and the other with the older ATA/133 interface (available by the end of September).
