OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 480GB PCI-E SSD Review

 

OCZ's solid state drives release schedule is progressing at a breakneck pace and even we've had a hard time keeping up with them. Be it consumer or

Extremely good read, write and real world performance ; Good price for its class ; Does not require a free SATA port ; Bootable ; Four high performance SF2281 Controllers ; Potential for TRIM support in the future ; SMART reporting ; OCZ Toolbox works...

VCA 2.0 requires a ton of processing power ; Increased ESD risk as there is no protective case or covering ; Requires deep queue depths to achieve best performance ; Only available driver is made for Windows 7 ; TRIM support will require 3rd party...

OCZ has been trying for years to break into the professional market in a meaningful way and though the original RevoDrive was indeed

OCZ RevoDrive 3 x2 480GB Review

 

While many people have yet to upgrade to a regular Solid State Storage drive, there are professional users who demand even more performance. For this high end audience, OCZ have specially crafted the RevoDrive 3 x2, which is said to be the fastest...

Performance in a class of its own ; Installation and drive configuration is bullet proof ; Its bootable with a compatible motherboard ; Available in capacities from 240GB to 960 GB

The OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 Preview: Second-Gen SandForce Goes PCIe

 

Solid-state tech marches on, and we're already approaching SATA's 6 Gb/s ceiling. OCZ is once again stepping in with a PCIe-based solution with ...

But if you're a price-conscious storage nut, you're also probably painfully aware that the fastest devices are the most expensive. And if a Vertex 3 SSD is pricey, the equivalent of multiple Vertex 3s on a PCI Express card are naturally even more so....

OCZ RevoDrive3 X2 Review

 

OCZ just keeps pushing the envelope on its PCI Express SSDs. The first RevoDrive contained two 60GB SF-1200-powered SSDs in RAID 0, with a Silicon Image PCI-to-SATA controller. The RevoDrive X2 kept the same architecture, but added a second PCB with...

Absurdly fast, especially in 4KB random reads and writes; great real-world results

Absurdly expensive; half again the price of Vertex 3s in RAID

Earlier RevoDrives were marketed to enthusiasts, but you’ll find the RevoDrive3 X2 under the “Workstation” category on OCZ’s website—with good reason: SandForce drives are already optimized for frequent small-file random reads and writes at high queue...

OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 (480GB) Preview: 200K IOPS & 1.5GB/s for $1699?

 

Although consumer SSDs are far from a mature technology, PCIe SSDs are even further behind on the growth curve. The upside is huge. As SandForce has already demonstrated with the right dataset a single SSD can nearly saturate the 6Gbps SATA bus. Rather...

I believe there's a very specific niche that is interested in something like the RevoDrive 3. A customer that needs the performance and is too resource limited to go after the more expensive solutions on the market. I believe it's a lot like what we...

OCZ Revo 3 X2 240GB

 

Truly remarkable speed with this PCI-E SSD.

As we've said before and we'll continue to hammer any chance we can get, the single biggest bottleneck in modern systems is the traditional plattered hard drive, and using an SSD in your system will make such a massive difference that you'll want to...

OCZ RevoDrive 3 240GB PCIe SSD Review

 

The OCZ RevoDrive series continues to demonstrate the growth of technologies and innovation in the SSD market.

While the RevoDrive 3 series is not going to fit into everyone's budget, it is simply one of the best storage options on the market, consumer or otherwise.

DIAMOND AWARD!

OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 - 480GB PCIe SSD Review

 

Today we have the higher specification RevoDrive model, the X2 attached to our test system and will be putting it through a selection of real world and synthetic tests to find out if OCZ can meet their claims of 1500MB/s speed and 230k IOPS.

Crazy fast, completely stable, feature packed and unbeatable.
