Especially regarding sequential throughput rates the IBIS performed excellent. Reading 256 KByte blocks ended up in a peak of 806 MByte/s. On average the sequential read and write performance was 767 MByte/s and 683 MByte/s which means that for example duplicating a 6 GByte file takes roughly ten seconds.
A closer look at the random rates shows that also at this point the IBIS is a very strong performer. Therefore we were able to measure 67'000 IOPS for 4 KByte blocks. This value as a bit more than half of what the manufacturer states on the website as well as on the devices box but never the less 67k IOPS is a massive number especially for high-end desktop users and enthusiasts. But it comes even better. If we look at the random read performance of 4 KByte blocks then we see almost 120'000 IOPS. This helps pushing the IBIS into a different league if one would like to compare it to "standard" SATA-II drives which deliver about 20'000 IOPS. Working with the IBIS really feels like somebody shifted two gears up.

In the end the IBIS is the perfect drive for demanding enthusiasts who are looking for the maximum performance available. The experience you get with this drive really searches for competition. Futhermore the IBIS is also available in sizes which make it possible to save all your impossible data on this very fast drive but sure, you need plenty of pocket money to enjoy this high-end product.

The OCZ IBIS can be bought at Brack Electronics AG to the following prices:

Es ist einfach etwas anderes mit diesem Drive zu arbeiten Für Festplatten habe ich schon lange keine Geduld mehr und auch bezüglich "älterer" SSDs spürt man mittlerweile doch schon einen deutlichen Unterschied.

ich mag den Begriff "bis zu", der kann so ziemlich alles bedeuten.
