Default cluster size for NTFS, FAT, and exFAT
All file systems that are used by Windows organize your hard disk based on cluster size (also known as allocation unit size). Cluster size represents the smallest amount of disk space that can be used to hold a file. When file sizes do not come out to an even multiple of the cluster size, additional space must be used to hold the file (up to the next multiple of the cluster size). On the typical hard disk partition, the average amount of space that is lost in this manner can be calculated by using the equation (cluster size)/2 * (number of files).

If no cluster size is specified when you format a partition, defaults are selected based on the size of the partition. These defaults are selected to reduce the space that is lost and to reduce the fragmentation that occurs on the partition.

Multi Actuator Technology: A New Performance Breakthrough | Seagate Blog
MACH.2 HDD's uses single pivot dual actuator setups so only one head per platter, but half the heads are independent from the other half. As opposed to those old Conner Chinook drives with twin actuators and dual heads. Dual heads would get more reads, but apparently the heads weren't stiff enough, causing vibration issues and early death.
