is HDD capacity related to read rate ?

I ask because I am aware that larger HDDs have multiple platters and I always presumed multiple r/w heads.

It would make sense therefore to use the heads concurrently in a similar way to the RAID effect to increase the overall throughput of data.

So a 60gb disc with 3 platters should be able to produce 3x the data bandwidth of a 20Gb - shouldnt it ?
