OWC Mercury Extreme Pro Re SSD & The SSD Review Team Set Overlocking World Record

SEOUL, Korea (AVING) — <Visual News> Sets HWBot Overclocking World Record with PCMark Vantage Score of 34311

“OWC SSDs capable of ‘mind blowing’ 3.6GB/s speeds…fast enough to transfer a full Blu-ray movie in less than seven seconds,” – The SSD Review

Other World Computing (OWC, http://www.macsales.com), a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, announced that the OWC Mercury Extreme Pro RE Solid State Drive (SSD) and The SSD Review Overclocking Team have set the HWBot Overclocking World Record for a Quad Core System. The SSD Review Team, headed by Paul Alcorn (a storage specialist and overclocker specializing in RAID/SSD performance benchmarking), set the new world record with a PCMark Vantage first submission high score of 34311 marks, beating out the former world record of 33271 points.

OWC SSDs Go Beyond Performance Expectations
Approximately 30,452 overclockers competed for Overclocker World Records over a wide range of benchmarks in the Overclockers League maintained by HWBot.org http://www.hwbot.org/article/news/info. Millions of benchmarks have been run utilizing PCMark Vantage, the gold standard for benchmark testing by reviewers and storage enthusiasts.

PCMark Vantage uses real-world testing scenarios based on normal, common user activity. Testing by PCMark Vantage revealed that OWC Mercury Extreme Pro SSD drives exceed everyday usage patterns which make them especially suitable for use in demanding RAID configurations. The PCMark Vantage World Record benchmarks were submitted to Futuremark databases, a central verification system. Once the results were verified by Futuremark, they were submitted to HWBot.org to post the results.

OWC SSDs Offer “Mind-Blowing” Speeds & Highest Reliability with All “Grade A” Parts Guaranteed
The SSD Review Overclocker Team chose OWC Solid State Drives for their world record attempt because of OWC’s SSD superior speed and reliability. OWC SSDs use all “Grade A” parts that exceed expectations in consistent reliability and speed. In a recent review by The SSD Review, eight OWC SSDs in a RAID 0 array delivered what site founder Les Tokar called “mind-blowing” 3.2GB/s read and 3.6GB/s write speeds with PCMark Vantage results of over 229304 points. With speeds that high, a full Blu-ray movie (25GB average movie size) can be transferred in less than seven seconds.

“We chose the OWC Mercury Extreme Pro RE SSD for our world record attempt because its 28% over provisioning ensures much better performance over many runs,” said Paul Alcorn, captain of The SSD Review Overclocking Team. “With the superior performance of OWC SSDs and the fact that the RE model is specifically tailored for RAID environments, OWC was an obvious partner choice for our record setting test rig.” For information on OWC’s SSD line, visit: http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/SSD/OWC/.

“I would like to thank Other World Computing for providing the Solid State Drives that enabled our team to set the world record,” said Les Tokar, founder and CEO of The SSD Review. “OWC SSDs have been proven to achieve greater performance than rated, thus making them extremely reliable for everyday use.”

“We’re extremely pleased our SSD was used to achieve a benchmarking world record,” said Larry O’Connor, Founder and CEO, Other World Computing. “Equally satisfying is that these independent test results continue to confirm that our SSDs deliver exceptional results for everyday users while being fully capable of handling the most demanding performance scenarios without any reliability compromise.”
