Liqid Element LQD4500 SSD: This is 50x faster than your PC

Last year that is in mid-2019, it was revealed by Liquid that the Liqid Element LQD4500 aka Honey Badger, a striking SSD would take advantage over PCI-Express 4.0 x16 interface.

The Next Level of Storage

The Element LQD4500 offers a Gen 4.0 x16 PCIe interface, which enables high throughput and low latency transactions and utilizes the latest NVMe protocol in order to deliver increased performance and efficiency from a single device. The LQD4500 outperforms legacy architectures by delivering up to 4 M IOPS of random performance, and over 24 GB/s of throughput, and ultra-low transactional latency of 20 us.

4 M IOPS and 24 GB/s

Proprietary architecture removes system bottlenecks. This performance lowers infrastructure cost while yielding higher performance.

NVMe SSD, up to 32 TB

Due to the density of drive you can better utilize server space. This dollar per terabyte ratio dramatically drives storage costs down.

>30,000 IOPS/Watt

Liquid’s technology is among the best in the industry related to amount of performance per watt. Typical performance for our HHHL is over 1 Million IOPS. That works out to a conservative estimate of >30,000 IOPS/W. Typical enterprise SSDs are much lower at only 5-10 K IOPS/W.

Thanks to the LINUX TECH TIPS by the grace of him we know that there are 8 X M2s on this thing (because he literally teared it up) and we can expect 28 GB’s/ Second which is right near the theoretical maximum.

Another cool thing we got to know about the SSD is that it plays a 4K video with a bitrate of 500 Mbps in a incredibly smooth way, which is same as to playing a video that has 20x times higher quality of vision compared to 4K that what is offered by Netflix streaming Service.

That’s all for now guys! Stay Home Stay Safe
