Liqid Element LQD4500 is based on multiple cluster PS5016-E16 master control, which uses PCIe 4.0 × 4 interface, equipped with custom firmware, up to support 32TB 3D TLC NAND flash memory. This oneSSDNVMe RAID, should be on the card similar to the PCIe 3.0 × 16 SD card we have seen in recent years. Because for data centers and enterprises, Element LQD4500 supports power outage data protection, as well as a number of Liqid exclusive technologies, including active telemetry monitoring, advanced error recovery, active temperature control and so on.
Liqid Element's fastest model will provide up to 24GB/s continuous reading and writing speed, 4M IOPS read and write speed, continuous random writing speed of 600K IOPS. The read latency is about 80 mus and the write latency is about 20 mus. The hard disk adopts a full-height and full-length one-card design with passive heat dissipation fins. Because of its super performance, its maximum power consumption can reach 65 watts, so it is suitable for large-scale systems, which need to provide at least 400 LFM air volume to heat.
According to customer requirements, Liqid Element can customize different capacity, speed and read and write life. The data center has three capacities of 7.68TB, 15.36TB, and 30.72TB, and has three capacities of 6.40TB, 12.8TB, and 25.60TB for enterprise applications. The DRAM cache capacity is unknown. The write life is up to 61.53PB and provides a three-year warranty.
The group will demonstrate this SSD at the Flash Summit next week. The price and release time are still unclear, but due to its capacity and performance, it is definitely a high price, and consumer users can only watch it.
