Better performance than the x terra 705

Minelab is pleased to provide further information about our exciting new SDC 2300 GOLD detector scheduled for release in mid-2014.

They say the best things come in small packages! This is certainly true for the SDC 2300. It’s compact, waterproof and built to perform in the toughest conditions. Undiscovered gold patches on land and underwater won’t stand a chance when the Minelab SDC 2300 gold detector makes its debut.
The SDC 2300 is a high performance mid-range gold detector, perfect for chasing down those elusive sub-gram nuggets both on land and underwater. From Minelab, the company that knows Gold, this compact waterproof gold detector comes with easy-to-use controls and is assembly-free! Let the versatility of the SDC 2300 open up a whole new range of possibilities for finding more gold nuggets!

Looks to me like Minelab has copied the Garrett ATX. It will be interesting to see how the two compare.
Being Minelab, it would have to be good though !!
