OCZ's RevoDrive 3 X2 240GB solid-state drive

techreport.com
26 March 2012
  • Summary: There's something very cool about the fact that OCZ's SuperScale chip and Virtualized Controller Architecture can, without resorting to RAID, make a quartet of SandForce SSDs appear to Windows as a single SCSI drive. The RevoDrive 3 X2 becomes even more intriguing when one considers the peak throughput that arrangement provides. However, the on the 240GB model quickly puts things into perspective.

OCZ RevoDrive3 X2 Review

maximum pc
17 November 2011
  • Excerpt: 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 two additional controllers and two more 60GB sets of NAND. OCZ’s RevoDrive3 X2 updates the platform to second-generation SandForce, but the new SSD controller isn’t the only change.
  • Pros: Absurdly fast, especially in 4KB random reads and writes; great real-world results.
  • Cons: Absurdly expensive; half again the price of Vertex 3s in RAID.

OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 480GB

Legion Hardware
26 September 2011
  • Summary: The OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 480GB is an interesting product that delivers strong performance, though not nearly as strong as we had hoped to see. For example, in our file copy tests the RevoDrive 3 X2 delivered the strongest performance of any product tested. However at best it was just 80% faster than a single Vertex 3 SSD, delivering less than 2x the performance.

  • Excerpt: Several years ago I reviewed motherboards and video cards. At the time NVIDIA was still a major player in the motherboard market and with each new release they stressed the number of PCI Express lanes their latest and greatest chipset had available. They made it very clear that the future of computing would ride the PCI Express highway. If NVIDIA wouldn't have been pushed out of the chipset business, how many PCIe lanes would we be up to today?

OCZ RevoDrive 3 x2 480 GB PCIe SSD Review – ATTO, Crystal and AS SSD Tests

thessdreview.com
28 June 2011
  • Excerpt: ATTO Disk Benchmark is perhaps one of the oldest benchmarks going and is definitely the main staple for manufacturer performance specifications.  For our testing, we use a set length of 256mb and test both the read and write performance of various transfer sizes ranging from 0.5 to 8192kb.  Manufacturers prefer this method of testing as it deals with raw data rather than random or mixed which, although more realistic, result with lower performance results.

OCZ RevoDrive 3 x2 480 GB PCIe SSD Review – HDTune Pro Benchmarks

thessdreview.com
28 June 2011
  • Excerpt: HDTune is a great software program which covers all areas of our testing and does a great job of showing how capable this drive truly is. HDTune Pro seems to bring out the best in the OCZ RevoDrive 3 x2 PCIe SSD as we see three random tests with transfer speeds in excess of 1GB/s.  Also noteworthy is the disk access time of 0.037ms which is the fastest we have seen to date.

OCZ RevoDrive 3 x2 480 GB PCIe SSD Review – IOMeter Benchmark Testing

thessdreview.com
28 June 2011
  • Excerpt: All SSDs are not created equal and many new SSD enthusiasts realize that when they test their new drive to confirm specifications and ensure all is in order. SandForce controlled SSDs, as in the RevoDrive 3 x2 480GB PCIe SSD we are testing today, use compression techniques in storage whereas many others do not. This creates a bit of confusion when enthusiasts test the drive with random data through benchmarking programs such as AS SSD and Crystal Diskmark.
