Recording design alternatives are analyzed for 100 1 Gbit/in2 vertical and horizontal patterned media, written at 1 Gbit/s with one and two pole heads. Bit write fields, disturb fields, and switching speeds are calculated as part of a system analysis of the theoretical potential of patterned media to address possible physics limits for conventional “featureless” continuous film media (these include thermal decay, nonlinear transition shift and transition noise, and high writer pole Ms requirements near the limit of known materials). The patterned media “bits” are assumed oriented vertically or horizontally by crystalline anisotropy, and smaller than 100 nm to allow single-domain, 1/2 ns switching. MsHc V/kT>500, implying thermal stability including media demagnetization and write head remanent fields, are nearly an order of magnitude areal density extensibility beyond 100 Gbit/in2 with present-day head/media magnetic requirements
