Anyone have any kind of comment on this new plug? It is supposed to outlast/outperform Iridium.

I'm waiting for the Vibranium spark plugs, now that Wakanda have opened up access to their mines.

Sorry, couln't help myself!
Iridium plugs are great, so if these Ruthenium ones (that I have never heard of before) are better, they are surely good. But be aware. There are tons of counterfeit spark plugs out there. In fact, it's quite hard to get the real deal, unless you buy from a super reliable source and pay the price to match. I have bought several sets of Iridium plugs from various sources (E-bay, Amazon, forum sales guys), and all of those have been fake.

I have a 8 cylinder Nissan NV with a set of NGK Ruthenium HX plugs installed. So far they are performing great after 35k miles. To say they will go the full 100k miles is yet to be seen. I do recommend them based on price and I trust the brand.
I do not recommend NGK IX. Some are being sold these at a high price at their local parts store to replace NGK Laser Iridium. These may be good for only 40-50k.

The NGK IX iridium plugs do not have an iridium tip on the ground electrode and will not last as long as the OEM spec Lazer iridium plugs which do. From what I have seen, the Ruthenium plugs are similar to the IX iridiums and also just have a nickel plated ground electrode.
