The latest IOTA stress test shows that the IOTA Hornet Node software (v.4.0) has a speed of up to 1,250 transactions per second (TPS) which is a great indicator as per the Comnet testnet.
Last Saturday, we reported that the IOTA Comnet testnet, a community network of Hornet nodes, had achieved a throughput of up to 600 transactions per second. In the latest cryptonews, we can see that this is history and far from the maximum.
With the latest IOTA stress test conducted yesterday, the network managed to rise up to 1,250 TPS with the new Hornet node v.4.0. alone. So, it is now clear that the IOTA network can handle a throughput of up to 1,250 transactions per second (TPS).
Nice #spamtest today on #comnet. Great job @der_muXxer and #hornet team. I grabbed this screenshot as it went and missed it when it broke 1250tps. Excited for the new updates and things to get even faster with the #Chrysalis updates in the coming months! #IOTA #IOTAstrong pic.twitter.com/3zbEqX0Pno

As you may not know, the test was conducted in order to celebrate the Hornet node software version 4 release candidate (rc) 13 on GitHub. This new release removes the unnecessary code for trinary computing and converts the code to its binary version.
As we can see from the change log on GitHub, it also improves the performance. In that manner, after the release yesterday, one researcher at the IOTA Foundation named Navin Ramachandran announced the spam test via Twitter and said:
“The #IOTA #comnet stress test / spamfest will begin at 8 pm CET. Follow progress on the #comnet channel of the IOTA Discord. The HORNET devs have been working over the weekend, so we hope for an improvement in TPS and CTPS today.Reminder that CTPS is currently roughly 10 on #IOTA mainnet. It will be really interesting to see what percentage improvement we get here.”
