A new company called DDRdrive claims that its DDRdrive X1 can hit 300,000 IOPS, the highest performance. The DDRdrive X1 is a PCIe Gen 1-based hybrid SSD, combining 4 GB of DDR memory and 4 GB of NAND flash memory. Christopher George of DDRdrive said that the drive was designed with a maximum IOPS performance in mind. A single drive can hit 300,000 IOPS (512B and read; 200,000 IOPS write; 50,000 IOPS in 4K read and 35,000 IOPS in 4K write), which, if true, not only outpaces Intel’s fastest SSDs (35,000 IOPS in 4K read and 3300 IOPS in 4K write), but also Fusion IO’s enterprise drives, which are estimated at 200,000 IOPS (512B read) and consumer SSDs, which are rated at about 100,000 IOPS (512B read). And those 300,000 IOPS can be achieved with a maximum power draw of 9.91 watts, reports TG Daily.
