OCZ RevoDrive3 X2 Review - MaximumPC

If you absolutely need the fastest consumer-level SSD, but you’re on Sandy Bridge and don’t feel like using up both your native 6Gb/s SATA ports on a two-disk RAID; or if your motherboard doesn’t have good native 6Gb/s SATA support; or if you don’t want to spend more dough on a hardware RAID controller; or you just really hate money, the RevoDrive3 X2 could be for you.

Review: OCZ RevoDrive 350 480GB PCIe SSD | Custom PC Review

CPCR: "The OCZ RevoDrive 350 is a full height, half length PCIe SSD which will be available in capacities of 240GB, 480GB and 960GB. The drive will be powered by either 2x LSI SandForce SF-2282 controllers for the 240GB model, or 4x LSI SandForce SF-2282 controllers for the 480GB and 960GB models for maximum performance of up to 1,800MB/s reads and 1,700MB/s writes.

Since the controllers aren’t designed to interface with each other natively, they’re aggregated using OCZ’s onboard ICT-2062 SuperScale storage controller (SCSI RAID controller) along with OCZ’s VCA (Virtualized Controller Architecture) 2.0, which we’ll discuss in a bit. The new RevoDrive 350 also includes an upgraded PCIe Gen 2 x8 interface from the older PCIe Gen 2 x4 interface on the previous generation RevoDrives.

Like last generation RevoDrives, the RevoDrive 350 will be bootable via PCIe and new for this generation is Linux support, which should be a huge win for those planning to use the RevoDrive 350 in some sort of server configuration.

If that sounds pretty exciting, let’s take a closer look at the drive!"
