When Samsung produced the 200 & 250GB P120s with increased areal density, and therefore better performance, did they release updated versions of the lower capacity drives to reflect this performance on all models?

Looking at the model names doesn't give much away.

CPU & HS: i5 2500K | Noctua Noctua NH-U12 - fanless
Case & PSU: Antec P180 | Seasonic 460W Fanless
Components:16GB Corsair Vengeance PC3-15000 | Gigabyte Z68 | Sapphire Ultimate HD7750 | Samsung 840 250GB
Cooling: Nexus RS 120mm top controlled by mobo (very low RPM)
External Storage: HP MediaSmart EX495 WHS2011 - 2x1TB WD Red

I don't think so. When the drives were first presented in the Samsung HDD catalog (here's a link to a version of it), a 120 GB one platter model was also present. So far, there is nothing on Samsung's site about this model. It has been removed from this version of the .pdf, but not entirely: the model SP1212N is still present in the list in page two.

I can only imagine how hard it is to manufacture 125 GB platters at the moment; thus there's no point in "wasting" the platters in 120 GB drives, when they are needed in the 250 GB models, and 120 GB can be reached with 80 GB platters.

Also, the platters in the 200 GB model are only 100 GB, AFAIK.
