I found this review from March 2012 of Z-Drive R4 PCIe card on storage review. It's old, but worth reading. For those of you who think OCZ is not competitive in the PCIe space, think again. This review show Z-Drive blowing the doors off FIOs and everyone else. Imagine how much better the new version will be! OCZ has a complete line of industry leading SSD products and in the right hands, this team and product line would be worth billions.
My favorite line
"For the right workloads the Z-Drive R4 is nearly impossible to beat in performance, price or flexibility."
Incredibly fast, more than twice in some scenarios than the competition
Priced very competitively at $7/GB, with many configuration options
Bootable, with Windows and Linux driver support
Needs higher levels of multi-threaded traffic to fully utilize eight SandForce controllers
The OCZ Z-Drive R4 offers a configuration for everyone, and delivers great IOPS/$ out of their standard MLC NAND offering. For the right workloads the Z-Drive R4 is nearly impossible to beat in performance, price or flexibility.
rqtect.. lightyear and year are the same unit measurement of time. The difference is lightyear describes the distance light travels in a year. So whether something is two lightyears or two years ahead of competitors, it is still the same measurement of both time and distance in either statement. In other words, light will still have traveled two lightyears in two years, and two years will still have taken place for light to travel two lightyears.
