Computex is still going strong, and we have an interesting bit of news from that convention. It seems that OCZ has just set a new world record with one of its solid state drives. The world record consists of 1 million 4K random write IOPS and 1.5 million read IOPS with a Z-Drive R4-equipped 3U Colfax International server that is based on a Supermicro platform. It features 7.2TB of MLC-based storage, so this setup is perfectly suited to large companies. The impressive thing though, is the score that OCZ was able to achieve. This shows that OCZ is more than capable of delivering impressive numbers with its PCIe SSDs for any type of client, be it a huge corporation or an average user looking to speed up their system. The Z-Drive R4 is ideal for enterprise clients dealing with the 4K file size, and Colfax International will be taking pre-orders on the configuration used and others like it during Computex. It is expected to ship a few weeks after Computex wraps.
