Active Media Ups Read Speeds with Predator GT SSDs
 
The new Predator GT series SSDs from Active MediaActive Media today crashed through the 200MB/s read speed barrier for SSDs with the launch of its Predator GT series. The two new SATA-II drives announced under the line each offer sequential read speeds of up to 220MB/s with 0.1ms access times.
 
SSDs are growing faster by the day as the technology evolves and more manufacturers take the plunge into this highly lucrative market. Manufacturers like Super Talent, OCZ and Active Media lead the pack with their high-end high-performance SSDs. Super Talent recently announced their MasterDrive SX SSD range that boasts of 200MB/s sequential read speeds to become some of the fastest SSDs around.
 
Upping the ante in the speed war today, Active Media’s Predator GT-SATA II line-up gives sustained read speeds of 220MB/s and sequential write speeds ranging from 120MB/s for the 64GB version to 200MB/s for the 128GB version. Both the drives come encased in brushed aluminium, with a bracket that allows them to be mounted in a 3.5in bay.
 
A new 8-channel controller and 128MB of SDRAM cache give the Predator GT devices a performance edge over competition. Already available at select online retailers, the 64GB drive is priced at $199.95, while the 128GB Predator GT will set you back by $369.95.

This thread seems like a very strong debate. Anyways as for me don't really know who would win?

But I do like the taliban's tactics though. They seem to come out really hard. Anyways its just my point of view.

There's scum everywhere m8, all sides - more-so during peace. Thing that boils blood are soldiers who use to sell arms.



The difference being though mate that soldiers selling guns was done on an individual basis, the stuff like racketeering etc that the IRA was doing was on an organisational basis. It was their bread and butter so to speak.

I'd ask the question as to where they got the weapons on such a large scale in order to sell them.

We're not talking about ak47s, fallen off the back of a camel, only dropped once.

U need a fair quantity, british issued, M16s - the same question, as well as czech, italian weapons - weapons from evidence rooms meant for disposal.

All dirty dealings.

Most of what the IRA was using was coming from the Communist blocs, with some from Libyia too. There were supposed to be some weapons originating from the US too, from sympathisers over there, not sure how true that is though.

On another note, the British don't use M-16's mate, they use the SA-80, and before that it was the SLR's. Moot point, I know :-)

Not gonna comment much on this, but If you read the ART OF WAR you will know what I mean. The enemy will do anything within their means to defeat you, there is no such thing as fair play, and nor should you play fairly if you wish to win.

The Geneva convention stopped a lot of what was stated above, however not all states or organisations signed up to it, which leaves some countries in a quandary.

If you find yourself interested in this whole thread search for "Hybrid Warfare". Some of the threads are QI (might only be to me )

Jungle Warfare - Vietcong
Urban Warfare - IRA
Desert/Mountain Warfare - Taliban

You're pretty much comparing apples to oranges there I'm afraid. Each 'terrorist' faction has it's unique skills and specialities.

The Vietcong were masters of jungle warfare. Knowing their own territory led to a distinct advantage despite the overwhelming firepower of the US.

The IRA were very much under armed in comparison to the other two but equally faced an armed force hampered by red tape and politics.

The Taliban are well trained (by the Britsh & US when they were fighting Russia - oh the irony of it all!) with scant disregard for human life, including their own. Well armed with russian hardware and much like the other two, they can easily blend in to the indiginous population making it hard for the armed forces to detect.

Out of the three, all pitched together, I think terrain would decide the winner.

Urban in Vietnam and Afghanistan too, just not on the tv much. Not enough movies about Afghanistan yet, seen a few low budget ones. But the Taliban have been over-running cities where the allied troops have to go in and do house to house.

I know, the M-16 was pointing out the different country variations, which I thought was obvious.

The SA-80 was only introduced during Kuwait, which is a moot point :p The "IRA" had "surrendered" (media term) or given up by then ? (can't remember)

Think the L1A1 would be more topical for the media slanted IRA coverage.

I'm not sure what you mean by the media slanted IRA coverage Rasta, and I'm not sure I want to know. It starting to sound like you have IRA sympathies, and if so I really do not want to know to be honest! I come from a military family and have had more than one close relative serve in N.I. so I think if this is where the debate is headed, I will bow out because I wouldn't trust myself not to vent a little steam over the IRA and any sympathisers.
