Toshiba has introduced a pair of new hard drives for professionals working in rugged environments with extreme temperatures and need 24/7-operation from their computers.

The 80GB PATA interface MK8050GACY and the 100GB SATA interface MK1060GSCX boast "the widest temperature range for 24/7 power-on operation in the HDD market," with a range of -15 to +70 degrees Celsius (5 to 158 Fahrenheit). Interface speeds, however, have been tested to be 100MB/s and 1.5 Gb/s respectively.

Pricing hasn't been announced yet, but production on these tough HDDs will begin in December.
