The RAD6000 is a proven and capable chip, but compared to the chips in modern PC’s it is positively Paleolithic. It tops out at 25 mHz, yeah I said megahertz. But a new generation chip is just becoming available, the RAD750. The RAD750 is based on the PowerPC 750, the same chip that runs this Macintosh I am sitting at right now. Apple calls it the G3, and still uses the chip in some low end notebooks. While the RAD750 runs at a pokey 250 mHz, that’s still a tenfold increase in processing capability of the RAD6000. And believe me, my 300 mHz G3 is plenty fast for most everything I need. I wonder if the next NASA probe will play mp3’s?
$108M overspent in ’02 by GovGuam – “For every dollar the government collected in the form of taxes, fees and federal contributions, among other things, it spent 33 cents beyond that, the numbers show.” And it was totally at the expense of taxpayers expecting a refund – LIKE ME.
