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 & 900 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.

1 out of 5 eggsdo not purchase

Pros: none, fast does not matter if it does not work

Cons: crashes,blue screens,total data loss,unstable,corrupt

Other Thoughts: had revo x2 that i had to rma because of failure , was sent replacement revo 3 x2 same problems now after months of trying to get this to work properly OCZ says now that the warranty is now expired by 5 months and there is nothing they can do.I have worked with Asus,Evga and they have always stood behind there products especially high end flagship models like this 650.00 ssd. Please Check reviews and forums as many consumers are having big problems with this product. I was a loyal customer to ocz and have purchased many products but after this experience will no longer purchase or recommend OCZ Terrible customer service!

5 out of 5 eggsVery Fast

Pros: Fastest SSD. Faster than any sata SSD drive out there. Reliable.

Cons: Uses up a PCI-E slot, which means you really need a x79 series motherboard and an LGA 2011 processor otherwise you won't have enough PCI-E lanes to support a 16x gpu and this card. You will have to run them at 8x and 8x. Which is ok, but not ideal.

5 out of 5 eggsNice and Cool

Pros: Easy to install. Using with an Asus Maximus VI Extreme and it still screams after months of use fast and smooth. I am running Windows 7 OS and they seem to enjoy running together. It's a fun drive to run with.

Cons: I have not had any issues running this drive or others I've purchased from OCZ in the past. Sometimes I wonder if people actually understand what their doing when installing SSD's manufactured by OCZ (and other hardware). Do some research prior to purchasing devices for your systems.

Other Thoughts: I would purchase a drive from OCZ anytime of the week. I know they were bought out recently -- I hope to see some good things coming out soon for us all. Hang in there and have some fun....

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Its fast. That may be a simplified answer, but its no less true for that. Applications don't load, they just open. Word, excel, photoshop, premier, programs that on lesser drives have to load simply open with this drive.
Pci-x interface leaves your SATA ports open for more drives. (can one really ever have enough HDD's?)

Cons: It is not inexpensive. (you do however get what you pay for)

Other Thoughts: When i built my current desktop I emailed my "wish list" that i built it from to a friend. He just submitted it as his order as well. Neither of us have had a problem with our Revo SSD's.
I likely wont use an HDD as my C:\ drive ever again, and i likely wont use a SATA SSD either. This drive is now my standard for building my PC's

4 out of 5 eggsMy Revodrive 3

Pros: Supper Fast!! Windows startup is Incredible.

Cons: Make sure your Sata config is in Ahci, Will not run in IDE. OCZ is great but support is lacking. They figure if your putting this in for the first time you should know what your doing???

Other Thoughts: Once I got it running proper! Its incredible.

5 out of 5 eggslate update to previous review

Pros: This review is for OCZ customer service and not the drive itself. great customer service by OCZ. Received replacement drive with very fast return service. The drive has not been put in a PC yet so don't know how it performs.

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: I just happened to be browsing the reviews , because i'm looking at new pci drives, and saw my previous review. I wanted to update and say that I had no problems with RMA and received a quick replacement drive for the one that failed from OCZ. I don't know how it performs because it is still unopened and I haven't used it in a PC yet. Hopefully it will work when I build a new trading PC for my niece.
