The ultimate storage solution is here. OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 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 RevoDrive 3 X2 delivers ground-breaking 1.5GB/s of bandwidth and 230,000 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 X2 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 X2’s Super Scale storage accelerator enables scalable SSD performance and significantly reduces the host CPU burden inherent to competing PCIe storage offerings. The RevoDrive 3 X2 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 RevoDrive3 X2 family gets its edge by employing a PCIe x4 Gen. 2 interface and four 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 1500MB/s read and 1225MB/s write speeds, and incredible random write up to 200,000 IOPS (4KB Aligned) under HPC or workstation workload with a single card solution. The RevoDrive 3 X2 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 X2 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 eggsA great buy.

Pros: It is incredibly fast and reliable. I use it for a select few games to create the pesky loading screens go away. Also if you lack the room in your computer for more SSDs and hard drives it fits smugly in a pci saving room.

Cons: A bit tricky to set up at first, but after some reading it becomes simple. It is also a bit pricey compared to doing a raid 0 with 2 SSDs with similar read and write speeds.

Other Thoughts: Due to my motherboard being a picky piece of hardware it prevents me from boosting the performance of this by x1 to x4 by making me choose between the pci slot and 2 sata3 ports.

5 out of 5 eggsRevist a year later

Pros: would not work a year ago in a modest AMD machine. I shifted it to a workstation Xeon and it was spectacular. But a pair of Intels did better. I shifted it to a more powerful AMD and it was spectacular. But 4 Intels in raid 0 did even better. I then shifted it to a mini itx paired with i7-4770R. Its performance is so spectacular I would not dream of trying raid 0 Intel pair. To be fair I had problems getting it to boot the 4770R and The fantastic help from OCZ suport overcame the problems and made it faster than before. Always been trouble free but for the 2 incidences above. Heavily worked in office environment doing lots of multitasking. Never misses a beat. No data drops and we move a lot of data around and do heavy sorting. No heat issues either.

Cons: frequently an Intel raid 0 pair or if not then an Intel Raid 0 4 ssd's give better performance. I am talking of MB raid not raid off a controller. Gets top end scores per Passmark but yes typically raid 0 4s or pairs do slightly better.

Other Thoughts: This card is using my one slot in my mini itx. I might have to kick it out to put in a video card but not in near future as it is in an office environment.

5 out of 5 eggsPricey but worth the money

Pros: Overall performance

Cons: Installation was a bit tricky at first. Price.

Other Thoughts: I've had this drive for the better part of a year now. No hickups, no issues of any kind to speak of. I've used regular ssd's in raid for years now and this revo drive has outperformed any raid pair of ssd's I've used thusfar.

5 out of 5 eggsPCIe SSD

Pros: fast card and easy to install very nice packing

Cons: Costly and has crash But " recovered fast and easy " after win patch and a few drive patches . No real down time just un-timely restarts. it was very new on market at time of purchase. But 3 times faster than most SATA lll.

Other Thoughts: NEED FASTER FOR CHEAPER! lol Free is always good!

1 out of 5 eggsDead

Pros: It's fast.

Cons: First one died after 3 months,
Second one died after a year.

Other Thoughts: This is the first and last RevoDrive for me. I've built computers for 15 years and just don't care for the hassle of fighting with a flawed system drive. i have other things to do besides troubleshoot a less than a year old hard drive. The speed was nice, but not worth the hassle.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: This thing is very fast, easy to install install, reliable, and it looks good in my case.

Cons: None, I am very satisfied.

Other Thoughts: I have the 480GB version, and have been using it on an Asus Maximus V Formula since January 2013 with no issues whatsoever. I have an Alienware m17x4 that i use for mobile gaming that is running duel 256GB vectors in raid 0 and it cannot touch the revodrive. I highly recommend this product for anyone who is looking for the best.

Mainboard: Asus Maxiumus V Formula
Ram: 16GB Corsair Dominator Platinum
Video Cards: Dual GTX 690's

5 out of 5 eggs18 months and still speeding along

Pros: Writing this review to dispel the inaccuracies of other reviews. The RevoDrive3 runs reliably on my Asus P8 mobo. The nonsense about the "long time" to initialization at boot up is ridiculous as it only takes all of 8 seconds to initialize the raid array. Then Windoze starts fast. Read reviews to appreciate its speed.

Cons: Updating firmware if needed is involved. Driver is easy update. Initial cost is to be considered but speed cost money....how fast do you want to go?

Other Thoughts: OCZ support is there and competent but they won't win any speed awards.

2 out of 5 eggs**AVOID**

Pros: PCIe SSD, crazy fast. Mine benchmarked at 900+mb/s
Loaded Battlefield3 about 1 second faster than Crusial M4 SSD (Sata)

Cons: -self destructs.
-1st one lasted 3 months
-RMA replacement lasted 2 months, even with 120mm fan over it. These run 70'c on the controller, and burn themself up.
-This SSD will not work on many motherboards. Not compatible. I had to buy all new Mobo and RAM to get this to work.
- adds 30 seconds to boot. It has to initialize

Other Thoughts: After the second burned up, OCZ did not honor their 3 year warranty for the replacement. I was told to update the BIOS on it and firmware. The PC can't find it. No way to update it. Even by bypassing windows via bootdisk.
Do you think $500+ for a few months of fast storage is worth it?
Shame on you OCZ for pushing this garbage on the public. poor quality product.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear kass,

We are very sorry to read of these difficulties. It sounds like there are multiple issues at work here as several problems you mention are very unusual. The RevoDrive 3 does not take 30 seconds to initialize - if installing in a capable motherboard it should only about 10 seconds to initialize. Also, if your ATTO Disk Benchmark results are limited to 900MB/s, your motherboard is not providing the full PCI-Express 2.0 x4 required. The drive should reach up to Up to 1500 MB/s when tested with ATTO Disk Benchmark.

OCZ will always honor the 3-year warranty when the Limited Warranty conditions are met. If you haven't already please contact our support and we will gladly assist if possible.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience!

Kind Regards,
OCZ Support
