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 1300MB/s write speeds, and incredible random write up to 230,000 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 eggsOCZ made it right

Pros: It wasn't fast or easy, but in the end OCZ set things straight and took care of me.

Cons: It took a while and a lot of work on my part.

Other Thoughts: After having lots of problems getting the drive to work properly with my configuration, it was determined that my drive was bad and needed to be RMA'd. I sent my drive to OCZ where that ran it through their battery of tests and did not detect any problems. So they said they were going to return the drive to me. I was not convinced that their testing was sufficient, since I had done everything requested on my system and the drive didn't work. So I requested a refund, or a different drive. At first they refused either option, which is why I left the last bit of feedback that was fairly negative. But after going back and forth a few more times, they offered to refund the majority of my purchase price. After I accepted their counter offer it took a couple of weeks to get the money, but I did indeed get it back, and I will not boycott OCZ in the future. Thank you OCZ for taking care of me.

5 out of 5 eggsSimply Awesome :-)

Pros: This SSD offers jizzzzz in your pants lightning fast speed. The box also makes a nice hat.

Cons: The box got wet and I lost my hat :-(

Other Thoughts: If your using windows 7 or 8 and require unreal data transfer speeds then you probably want this drive. Setup is easier than the reviews above suggest.

1 out of 5 eggsAs feared, the RMA was a failure :-(

Pros: Fast for workstation/server use when properly configured. A very elegant & simple solution to getting a large fast drive setup.

Cons: To follow up on the comment I left below...

I completed all troubleshooting steps OCZ staff instructed me to complete. THEN THEN INSTRUCTED ME TO RMA the drive....but after completing their internal testing, they found the drive to be operating normally according to their internal testing. This means:

1) The drive is fine, but the troubleshooting procedures they instruct the user to perform are not adequate or are inaccurate.

2) The drive is faulty, but their internal testing is not adequate or is flawed.

So they are returning the same drive back to me, which we already confirmed is not working properly in my system (the Vertex 3 I've been using since the RMA has been working just fine)....they also refused my request for a refund. So I'll be selling this one off, and buying from another vendor.

Other Thoughts: Sorry OCZ, no passing grade from me on this purchase :-(

1 out of 5 eggsFirst one was a dud...hoping the 2nd will be better

Pros: Fast for workstation/server use when properly configured. A very elegant & simple solution to getting a large fast drive setup.

Cons: Too fast for desktop users or gamers to benefit. A complex R&D project that may be premature for the consumer market. This one worked OK....but would crash my system on a daily basis with a "0xF4" BSOD message. OCZ tech support is having me RMA the unit...which really sucks on such an expensive item.

Other Thoughts: I really wish this would have been successful, now I've got to deal with an RMA, and based on bad rumors of the OCZ history with RMAs, I don't have much hope...I'll let you all know how it goes.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry for the difficulties. Our support staff will see that you are taken care of properly, and that you are up and running again as soon as possible. We care about our customers and are always available to help. Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsFAAAST; Great Price

Pros: This RevoDrive3 is faster than the first generation, and requires the same amount of work to setup etc.

The utilities to update BIOS and firmware are available as a software package to run from windows, or a stand alone CD that uses Linux, simple enough.

There are no drivers for Linux, but windows 32/64 bit is fully supported.

No user settings to worry about in the RevoDrive BIOS, just update to the latest version.

Seems to use different/new (better?) heat sink design, this seems to be a newer version of the card than what was available months ago, latest firmware and BIOS.

When in Windows consider adjusting the size of the partition to a smaller size, at least 15 GB for over provisioning, will keep this thing running better.

Is this not a great price, compare to all others.

Enjoy

Cons: Need drivers to set up.
