New Raptor: http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=28577

From the Inquirer, but has a link to an actual product page, so I think it's probably legit. This is what happens when there's no competition though. The old ones are still very expensive and it was 2 years or something before they released a larger one. I find it very difficult to believe that they couldn't have come out with this quite a while ago if they had needed to.

Anyway, it's a new toy. Should be interesting to see benchies.(xmassign)

10k rpm drive with a native SATA300 NCQ'ing controller board AND 150 Gigs of space. 'Bout time.

Luckily they're calling one version a "gaming" drive so they can overcharge with less support.

Hopefully Dell will carry them and run some 20% off accessories coupon without realizing they're selling them below cost in the first week.
