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 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 1250MB/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 RevoDrive3 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 DRIVE

Pros: I have now built 10 high end "Solid Works" work stations with this unit and would highly recommend it to anyone needing fast load speeds. All 10 of these workstations have been in use at least a year and a few over 2 years and have all worked flawlessly.

Cons: Requires a little bit of knowledge to install properly. Newbies should not write reviews if you don't know what your doing!!!!!!

Other Thoughts: I sell these work stations for $7500 and need reliability for my customer. I used to use a dedicated raid card with 2 SSD's in raid 0 that had all kinds of problems (failed back-up batteries for raid card, foreign configurations in raid set-up, failed ssd's). The OCZ RevoDrive 3x2's are cheaper, run faster, and have worked flawlessly!!!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsPeople with new toys don't read

Pros: Never had it. I'm a gamer and I'm buying a refurbished one for $150 240gb at 740MB/s read. But you people that give it bad rep do no research. You are obviously using only 1 lane. Go to bios and set your pcie to x4. not auto and not 1. As your benchmarks show that for 1 lane you get 3xxMB/s so 1500MB/4 lanes = 375MB/s per lane. I wish I had $700 to blow...

Cons: People

Other Thoughts: I wanna see this become popular so everyone else will make the same product and I wanna see a price drop. That's why I'm helping y'all out.

5 out of 5 eggsMust Have

Pros: Speeds are Unreal. I benchmarked 1500 MB/sec write 1600-1700 MB/sec write.
for 2x the price you get 3x + the speed, you do the math :)
480 GB

Cons: Had to Download the drivers from OCZ.com, the cd drivers bluescreened my installation everytime... idk why.
Price a bit high.

Other Thoughts: Standard HDD Benchmarked 150 MB/sec Write 150-160 MB/sec read

5 out of 5 eggsPerfict Workstation Card

Pros: Extremely fast - Do not be fooled by using normal testing methods, I have used multiple different analyzers and they all come out different. I have personally noticed that when moving large amounts of data is where this drive really shines. Normal operations are mildly faster, but in the high data intensive applications like Creo Parametric loading models over 3,000 parts, this drive shines like no other.

Installation Very Easy - Many state that the installation is somewhat difficult, but the as-provided disk has the drivers if being used as an OS partition (not recommended). I would not recommend installation of the OS on any PCIe drive due in part that its not a raid. Always backup your OS and important data. I will also go to say that this drive is not used for long-term file stowage, I have a RAID 1+0 with standard drives in more reliable stowage, but using this for working copies has proven to be a dream.

Temperature - This drive runs much colder than any conventional drives I have. Thou don't be fooled, all drives will fail if not properly cooled.

Cons: No shielding nor casing over the circuit board and chipset. I would expect better quality in that area for the price. Nevertheless, this does not change its performance.

Price - This was not an issue for me, but I do not recommend this drive for any average nor personal user. This drive will not speed up internet browsing or games. It may help load them initially, but paying higher price will just cause more negative reviews as the average user will not be utilizing the drive in its optimum environment.

No ability as-to-date to set up in a RAID (hopefully soon?).

Other Thoughts: Recommend this for local "working" copies of data in high end workstations requiring large data reads (3D CAD systems with 1000+ part assemblies for example).

5 out of 5 eggsbought it - happy

Pros: very fast component. happy with it so far.

Cons: extra steps to get it installed. Not very difficult, but gotta download the latest driver, place it on a usb key, and when loading windows 8, point to the usb / driver for it to see the drive.

may need to flash/update your motherboard bios.

Other Thoughts: after a certain speed, you won't notice much of a difference anyway. Get this only if you have a solid need for speed... i.e. intensive multi tasking / multiple vm setup of some sort... or if you have money to throw around.

I like the performance for the price. Plus... its a PCI-E hard drive.. how novel is that?

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

I am sorry that you are unhappy with your product. Based on the benchmark you posted, I believe you are using Crystal Disk Mark or AS-SSD. The specifications for the drive are created with ATTO. Both CDM and AS-SSD will show lower results due to the dataset (incompressible) that they use. Real world use will be a mix of the 2 data types and will therefore fall somewhere in between.
If you still need help with the drive, create a support ticket at the link below.

1 out of 5 eggsAlways have good backups on hand when using SSDs

Pros: 400 MB/s transfers are pretty good

Cons: 400 MB/s transfers for $750? And what are the quoted specs, again? 1500 MB/s? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. So, right, cons? The company are cons!
Anyway, hey, this is the fastest I've ever had an SSD die on me. I mean, wow, 2 weeks. The technology is SO no ripe for use and the prices are just stupid and, hey, it doesn't even matter how much you spend - they're all junk. Arg.
