After seeing the performance skyrocket in our synthetic benchmarks, it goes without saying that significant firmware improvements were had between the pre-production sample and the retail version of the RevoDrive 3 X2. Compared to our first go around with the pre-production RevoDrive 3 X2, we saw significant gains in synthetic benchmarks, but scores either holding or dropping in our real-world traces. And some capabilities the Revodrive has, if OCZ’s performance claims are accurate. It is still a problem though, especially in the context of some solid state drives.

Together, the two boards form a single drop-in PCI-e board in four-lane format. That drive can then be used as secondary storage or configured as a boot device.

Exactly what impact this will have on SSD survival rates remains unclear. TechRadar pro IT insights for business.

Have a peek before we dive into the architecture behind the RevoDrive 3 X2, and then put the pedal to the metal. Together these features help keep SSDs fast and fit.

In other words, if the RevoDrive 3 doesn’t deliver on its theoretical capabilities, it won’t be able to point the finger at the SATA port. OCZ has cooked up a software layer that promises several benefits and has given the RAID hardware an overhaul to 2x. Origin PC Chronos Review: Not all areas saw improvements though, as we found some scores to drop in our HTPC and Productivity real-world traces, both of which have a heavy mix of read and write activity.

The RevoDrive 3 is a Storport device, which is Microsoft’s recommended interface revodrlve “high-performance buses, such as fibre channel buses, and RAID adapters.

The bad news is that issues on the OS side remain.

If you’ve been reading the pages of HotHardware for any length of time, you’ve probably noticed that we have an affinity for just about anything SSD related.

First the regular SSDs, then addressing the corporate market, we then noticed a couple of company takeovers like with more recently Indilix and yeah, this year at Computex we noticed that OCZ is aggressively adapting into many markets and channels with a diversity of products.

After seeing the performance skyrocket in our synthetic benchmarks, it goes without saying that significant firmware improvements were had between the pre-production sample and the retail version of the RevoDrive 3 X2. Ridiculously Fast External Xx2. A lot of the PCIe-based SSDs on the market are multi-thousand-dollar offerings designed explicitly for enterprise applications; they’re a devodrive outside the realm of what’s reasonable for even an expensive desktop.
