The ultimate storage solution is here. OCZ RevoDrive 3 PCI-Express Solid State Drives were designed with power users and workstation users in mind where storage I/O performance is essential for maximum productivity. Eliminating the SATA bottleneck, the PCIe-based Revo3 delivers ground-breaking 1GB/s of bandwidth and 130,000 4KB random write IOPS making this an ideal SSD for intensive multithreaded workloads, multimedia design, and workstation applications.

Along with unprecedented performance, the RevoDrive 3 features OCZ’s Virtualized Controller Architecture (VCA) 2.0 which provides features including TRIM support and SMART data monitoring, something previously unheard of with PCIe solutions. In addition, the RevoDrive 3’s SuperScale storage accelerator enables scalable SSD performance and significantly reduces the host CPU burden inherent to competing PCIe storage offerings. The RevoDrive 3 series is a premium feature rich storage solution that delivers superior performance and reliability through innovative design.

  • newegg Single Highest Performing SSD in Prosumer Space The RevoDrive 3 family gets its edge by employing a PCIe x4 Gen. 2 interface and two SandForce SF-2281 controllers in RAID 0 design to maximize data access and bandwidth. The result is up to 3X faster performance than SATA 6Gb/s solutions - up to 1000MB/s read & 925 MB/s write speeds, and incredible random write up to 130,000 IOPS (4KB Aligned) under HPC or workstation workload with a single card solution. The OCZ RevoDrive 3 can take full advantage of today’s multithreaded processors and software, and delivers an easy-to-deploy, OS bootable large storage capacity solution.
  • newegg OCZ Virtualized Controller Architecture The RevoDrive 3 provides unique benefits to users by incorporating features from the VCA 2.0 flash virtualization software that allow certain direct memory access (DMA) and data management functions. Included in this feature-set are OCZ’s exclusive command queuing and queue balancing algorithms, which can be handled by the onboard processing core for higher performance and reduced burden on the host resources. VCA 2.0 is also the only virtualization layer in the industry with TRIM and SCSI unmap support to enhance sustained performance and provide greater endurance by significantly reducing the overhead associated with garbage collection. Furthermore, VCA also offers consolidated SMART support and provides system administrators with advanced features for monitoring, analyzing, and reporting device attributes.
  • newegg OCZ SuperScale Storage Accelerator The OCZ SuperScale storage controller combines processing and full DMA (direct memory access) cores, as well as internal PCIe, SATA and SAS interfaces. This controller, combined with VCA 2.0 provides unique benefits to users by allowing certain DMA and data management functions including OCZ’s unique command queuing and queue balance algorithms to be handled by the onboard processing core, resulting in higher performance and reduced burden on the host CPU.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic!

Pros: Incredibly fast. Great bang for the buck. Huge capacity. If you know how to set it up, you'll be thrilled.

Cons: Can be difficult to set up. Mine require a BIOS upgrade on a fairly recent Gigabyte motherboard before it would get recognized as a boot device.

Other Thoughts: This product had a single 1-star rating when I bought it, so I was a little worried. I shouldn't have been. This isn't for beginners, though. It takes some effort and experimentation to get set up. B ut once it is set up, it's rock solid.

5 out of 5 eggsWow! What a concept!

Pros: Bought mine in December 2011 and never looked back. Did a clean install of Windows 7 64 bit and it's been running great ever since. I run Adobe Creative Suites for a living and the applications just fly open. It does take a little longer to boot the computer up because of the inializing process, but it is well worth the time. I am running this with the 6 core Intel i7 cpu and 16 gig of ddr3 ram on the LGA 1366 motherboard.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: ran the Atto benchmarks and it delivers as promised. Way out performs the Sata 3 route

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive, a bit difficult to set up

Pros: Lightning fast. Huge.

Cons: Somewhat difficult to set up. You probably won't be able to put your existing installation on top of it; you'll need a fresh install.

Other Thoughts: Great drive, espeically when you can get one on sale. Mine's been running for over 2 months without a hiccup. Documentation is a little weak. Having a newer system with a fully updated BIOS will help.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is a very fast ssd. I hav'nt run any benchmarks but when I play my favorite games the with the settings maxed out the difference is noticable. The installation of an ssd does require some study but it is not that difficult. Win7 settings need to be addressed and bios changes need to be made. I am using this as my primary drive and wanted to copy data from my existing WDhd to this one. Take a tip from me and get Paragon Os migration to SSD software to do this. It is an excellent program,just google Paragon

Cons: Not a lot of info included with product for people who want migrate OS from older HDD to new PCIe SSD,but that is not bad enough to drop an egg.

Other Thoughts: Do some research and it works great. only have had it for a short time but love this drive. Asus M4A89TDpro USB3 motherboard,ASUS EAH5850DirectCU video card

1 out of 5 eggsCrashes Win7

Pros: This card is _fast_. We use it in a high-throughput imaging application to pull live images off of a frame-grabber at over 250 MB per second. It kicks this problems $%#. Not something I can say about any other piece of hardware.

Cons: I started getting BSOD's a couple of weeks in, trying permutations of different active/installed hardware finger the card as the culprit. This manifests as the following waring in Event Viewer: "Reset to device, \Device\RaidPort0, was issued.", followed by a hard BSOD like 5 seconds later.

Second, don't but this card to minimize your boot time, the internal configuration calculus it runs at each boot comfortably takes 30-45 seconds. . .

Other Thoughts: Kinda sucks to pay $1400 for a crashy card . . . :(

We are a startup and these kinda things hurt.
