Benchmark Results: Streaming And 4K Reads/Writes
Our streaming reads benchmark pattern actually shows the IBIS drive pushing more than OCZ's rated 740 MB/s. This result is on par with the ioDrive and ioXtreme Pro products we've tested.
Writes fall off a bit, as expected, but not nearly to the extent of Intel's X25-M--even in RAID 0. Again, these results are close to some of the fastest PCIe-based SSDs we've tested.
Although we've seen 4k read performance similar to OCZ's from product like the ioDrive, the 4k write performance is unprecedented. We already knew Intel's X25-M would fall off precipitously here, but this is the first time we've seen 100 000+ IOPS in this benchmark pattern.
Those HDDs cost more then my entire comptuer
Read 1.4GB/s, Write 1.2GB/s
At those speeds, it's like writing to RAM, only it's your hard drive.
There were also capacities up to 1TB that cost about $4,000. There were even SLC models (which cost 4x more, approx. $15,000) which are slightly faster still.
Personally, I wouldn't mind having 1TB of "slow" RAM as my hard drive, but it's just beyond my budget.
Yup, check it out! =)
