OCZ RevoDrive3 X2 Review
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.
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?
Conclusion: IMPORTANT: Although the rating and final score mentioned in this conclusion are made to be as objective as possible, please be advised that every author perceives these factors differently at various points in time. While we each do our best to ensure that all aspects of the product are considered, there are often times unforeseen market conditions and manufacturer changes which occur after publication that could render our rating obsolete.
Excerpt: 3 Flares 3 Flares × 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 consumer drive by a considerable margin.
Summary: Das OCZ RevoDrive3 X2 erreicht Geschwindigkeiten, die bis zu dreimal schneller sein können als die von SATA-III-SSDs. Entgegen herkömmlichen SSDs ist das RevoDrive über PCI-Express angebunden und überwindet damit die Grenze von sechs GBit/s.
Summary: Il nuovo OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 racchiude in sé il meglio dell'attuale tecnologia SSD; l'unità si è rivelata molto veloce in ogni ambito d'utilizzo con prestazioni di assoluto rilievo, che attualmente la rendono uno delle soluzioni più performanti al mondo.
Scegliere un SSD non è mai un compito semplice dal momento che, anche se questo tipo di unità sono in costante evoluzione, la tecnologia relativa ai controller presenti sulle motherboard non si evolve di pari passo.
