Building off the award-winning RevoDrive, the OCZ RevoDrive X2 takes performance to new heights while doubling the storage capacity for the ultimate PC experience. With a proprietary four-way RAID 0 design, the RevoDrive X2 enhances data access and maximizes bandwidth with superior data rates up to 740MB/s and up to 120,000 IOPS, nearly triple the throughput of other consumer SSDs. Unlike competing PCIe solutions, the RevoDrive X2 is bootable ensuring quicker boot-ups in addition to snappier application loading and file management. The RevoDrive X2 can accommodate a wide range of computing environments such as video-editing and other multi-media creation and management, all while providing the superior durability and reliability of SSDs.

  • newegg SSD Storage Technology Unlike traditional hard disk drives, SSDs have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly reliable storage solution that also offers faster application loading and system responsiveness. And for laptops and netbooks, the lower power needs of SSDs translate to extended battery life. Higher performance with more durability means you can be truly mobile with confidence.
  • newegg Incredibly Fast Performance The RevoDrive X2 family gets its edge by employing a PCIe x4 interface (1GB/s bandwidth as opposed to 3Gb/s of SATA II) and four SandForce-1200 controllers in RAID 0 design to maximize data access and bandwidth. Therefore the RevoDrive X2 SSDs (100GB-160GB) feature up to 740 MB/s read & 690 MB/s write speeds, up to 550 MB/s sustained write speed, and incredible random write up to 100,000 IOPS (4KB Aligned).
  • newegg Bootable The RevoDrive X2 is powered by the PCI-Express bus and OS bootable allowing for use as the primary boot drive and super-fast system startup. (Motherboard supporting boot over PCI-E is required.)

4 out of 5 eggsComplicated but worth it

Pros: Blazing fast with everything I do. Installed the games to it in Windows, put the database/webserver files in Linux. TrueCrypt dual cascade AES-Twofish is only limited by the CPU load on my 2600K keeping it to ~300MB/s read / 170MB/s write.

Cons: Not sure why but using LZMA2, Gzip or Bzip on large quantities of files on this drive is strangely slower than on my 3TB and velociraptor. Might just be a limitation of the board link speeds or I'm doing something horribly wrong.

Also very difficult for motherboard to recognize at first but once it does (think after I updated BIOS), is quite usable. But like everyone else mentioned here, using it as your OS drive is downright annoying. Which is why I dont.

Other Thoughts: Coming up on a year of use but as with every SSD, I'm more worried about the lifespan of the drive than the speed. Stopped playing games a few months ago when I started using it for the server but with so much R/W action it's making me try to SAVE it and use my other drives.

I'm also OCD. So yeah.

Oh and if you're new or just starting out in the enthusiast arena - this is a great way to get you started with troubleshooting MB/HDD/Operating System combinations.

1 out of 5 eggsAVOID

Pros: Not for me.

Cons: This drive is highly prone to failure. Even with the provided drivers on OCZ's site, the drive will not take windows 7; the OS it is supposed to work best with. The RAID configuration is flaky at best.

As others have said before, OCZ is NOT a terribly honest company.

I'm ready to eat my $300 because I just will not subject myself to their return department.

I will regret buying this drive and will stop purchasing from them in the exact way I will not purchase Creative products after the Daniel_K incident. I've had enough.

Other Thoughts: It will NOT work on Mac OS X although I DID NOT EXPECT it to. Nowhere did they say it would. Will not fault them there.

However, Linux support even with the recommended kernel is just as spotty as Win 7.

HIGHLY Disappointed.

3 out of 5 eggsPretty good, but...

Pros: Yes, this is fast. If you are coming from an SATA II ssd or a hard drive. If you do your homework first, installation is simple and straightforward. Leaves SATA ports open.

Cons: Great for large file reads. Fares much less well with small reads. On a fresh install, the boot time from login to google is well over 5 minutes. After almost a year and a very clean system (I7 2600K, EVGA 580sc, little software running), it takes close to 10 minutes to boot. Once you have everything up and running, and have already opened a program once since booting, they will open extremely fast and run very smoothly for the most part. Fine if you leave your system on 24/7.

Other Thoughts: Honestly, the new Vertex 3's are going to be much faster (real world, though not in benchmarks) and simpler. Having two in RAID0 with another small one for virtual memory would scream past this for about the same money. Tax return time, that's what I'm doing! This one will just be for games and photoshop and whatnot.

2 out of 5 eggsnot quite above board

Pros: none. there is absolutely nothing special about this piece of hardware, and in all honesty i expect one would be better off purchasing a software RAID card if one lacks SATA ports. see other thoughts.

Cons: speed, speed, speed. this device is *nowhere* near as fast as claimed, certainly not after six months. i'm only using it for a database that has _very_ few writes, and its much slower than my disk-based RAID.

and yes, i spent much time on your forums, reading about sector alignment, etc. there is only one partition. there is not a lot of activity. and yet this is barely faster than two raptors in RAID0...

PCI-E, are you sure? i doesn't look that way to me.

04:00.0 PCI bridge: Pericom Semiconductor PCI Express to PCI-XPI7C9X130 PCI-X Bridge (rev 04)
05:00.0 RAID bus controller: Silicon Image, Inc. SiI 3124 PCI-X Serial ATA Controller (rev 02)

this is a PCI-X device mated to a PCI-X -> PCI-E bridge. OCZ isn't a terribly honest vendor.

Other Thoughts: ~300MB/sec (298.14 MB/sec), thats what this device is good for. i have some 40GB SSDs i use for boot disks, they cost less than $100 and get 150MB/sec (147.78 MB/sec - purchased at the same time, so wear is the same for both). a silicon image controller that offers 2 ports costs $10; in other words i can get the same performance for half the price that i paid. real performance is the 500MB/sec i get from an areca card, using 8x5.4k laptop drives in RAID6. granted this has faster random access.

here's the funny thing; i'm actually going to buy a 3rd generation version of this card. its like the patriot gear i put in computers that i inevitably give to others because there's no way on earth it gets to stay in my boxen. i will give you a second chance OCZ, one more chance to prove that your company is more than marketing and hot air, but in case its not you should perhaps tell me now.

get one of these N82E16816117158 and fill it with SSDs if you want to use PCI-E for something usefu

5 out of 5 eggsLegen... wait for it.... dary!

Pros: PCIe interface for blazing speed, already configured in RAID setup, no need for a first-time RAIDer to worry about any of that, literally plugged it in, loaded the RAID drivers onto a USB jump drive, installed Windows 7 x64 and when it prompted me I told it to load these drivers for this RAID. Not a single hint of a problem since then.

Blazing fast speed. After a POST it usually takes me 17-18 seconds to get to a full Win7 desktop and actually being able to click and run things (not sitting there loading like on older systems, where you can't use the mouse for 2 minutes).

VERY fast. This is good. It's the reason I got a Revo X2 instead of a standard SSD. The X2 line is RAIDed on the board. The standard REVO line is just a drive. It's the difference between nice and awesome.

Cons: It's PCIe. This is a pro and a con. It's a con because I can't just stick in another. I can't add to the RAID and reformat for more storage.

It also only has 100GB storage give or take. While this is enough to run windows, a few key programs, one or two high-priority games I have, the rest of my stuff goes on a standard platter HDD (1TB Samsung) that handles most of my stuff.

100GB is good, but not great. If you want 1 primary drive and no backup, if you don't want to separate your windows paths to point your temp directories, swap files, etc all to your SATA HDD, then you may want to save up and pay for the higher storage versions that have come out since the time I bought mine.

Major cons: PRICE! SUPER HIGH PRICE!! In a couple years this may be dirt cheap. Now on the upslope of SSD technology, you have to pay for your performance.

Other Thoughts: When I first installed Win7 x64 and was putting programs onto the system I did some video editing in my usual software package. I literally freaked out for a minute. The response of the shuttle was instant, no hesitating, no skipping, no micropauses or delays... I was literally thinking "what the frak!?" until I realized all my temp folders, swap files, render files, and cache files were on the SSD by default at this point.

It WILL make a big difference in every day computing. I transfered my editing defaults to the secondary drive to extend longevity of the SSD, but I read a study/test that suggested leaving windows' swap file on the SSD won't hurt it any more than standard use, as with Windows the swap file was usually written to with small amounts and the end opinion was this is where it's worth using an SSD.

EVGA EFF-TEE-W (filter thinks it's naughty backwards) LGA775 motherboard had absolutely NO problem with this card, as mounted on the lower (outer-most) PCIe slot

1 out of 5 eggsShocked

Pros: Installed easily. Cool led. Nicely packaged. Booted with no problems ... the first time

Cons: After that just straight problem, installed drivers as required per instructions afterwards system required reboot. On the post screen it read only 3x23gb out of the 4x23gb it should have, tried several forums for assistance and all the troubleshooting steps I could find and all lead to rma.

Other Thoughts: Spend 360 on a 69gb PCI ssd, it seems to work just fine no compatability issues was able to install windows on it. I was going to say "oh well" and not wait the extra month to send and receive a new one or one that work. But I realized this is unacceptable. It may only be 23gb but I did pay for those 23gb.

1 out of 5 eggsJUST PROBLEMS!

Pros: Any!!!

Cons: My problems started when installing windows XP. With a simple SSD the installation is super fast with the Revodrive took a LOT of time. In the windows everything seems slow, to open a program, to open a data. There is a lot of freeze problems at OCZ website, go there before you buy revodrive. To make this drive work I did everything possible, change pcie slots, take out all sata cables, put the windows in performance mode, checked the BIOS and Firmware version(latest), changed to AHCI and RAID options. Went to diskdrive polices (Win XP is different from Win 7) and took all the boxes with different combinations. TIRED of trying to make the Revodrive run as advertised. Just to mention that in Crystaldisk bench the write speeds do not pass 160Mb/s.

Other Thoughts: Bought this drive for performance and received a time-consuming hardware that instead of give me performance, gave me PROBLEMS to solve.

3 out of 5 eggsFast but low compatibility

Pros: Read 280 megabits/second on each of the 4 partitions on the card. Hardly any configuration necessary.

Cons: You probably want to consult the motherboard compatibility chart on the OCZ website before ordering this. The drive worked well with FreeBSD 9.0-beta, but wasn't recognized by either Ubuntu 10.10 or Fedora 13 when used in a Gigabyte GA-H67MA-USB3-B3 motherboard (not on the list). I eventually found it worked with Ubuntu 11.04 and Fedora 15 but I had to move the drive to slot PCIEX4 from PCIE1. I don't know why that should make a difference but it is suggested on the OCZ website for several other motherboards.

Other Thoughts: This is first I have heard or seen of a SATA controller that wasn't broadly compatible across OSs and motherboards and it seems odd that moving the card away from the cpu would help it to work. There are quite a few postings on the web from people who got this drive to work with Ubuntu, but had trouble getting Ubuntu to boot from this drive. I expect they had another motherboard, and the process of booting Ubuntu off this card seems to be a bit complex. I haven't tried it.

Manufacturer Response:

We are very sorry for the difficulties. Linux distributions historically have some issues when it comes to hardware support. The fact that this product works well with other distributions and Windows, would point to driver/coding issues. We make suggestions based on our testing, and want every customer to have a good experience with our products. If we can answer any questions, please visit our support forums at the link below. Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsFast.

Pros: It is what it says, fast.

Using for gaming and have 1 to 2 sec load screens.

Cons: Wish I went with the higher GB model... was originally going to have OS + a few games on this, but after a week of having my OS on this (at blazzing fast speeds that I wish i still had) it was evident that i wouldn't have enough room and the trouble of keeping it perfectly clean was a hassle... reinstalled my os on a hdd while keeping this just for gaming now.

Other Thoughts: If you want your OS on this it is recommended to go with the higher GB model.
