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 975MB/s read & 875 MB/s write speeds, and incredible random write up to 120,000 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 eggsWarranty sucks be aware

Pros: fast drive first drive easy to install

Cons: 1st drive stopped working in 4/2014
2nd drive(replacement of first drive) never worked when received(sent back)
3rd drive (replacement of 2nd drive) stopped working 9/2014...

I was told warranty starts from date of purchase, so when the 3rd drive stopped working, I GOT NOTHING... NO NEW DRIVE, NO DISCOUNT OF THE NEXT DRIVE...NOTHING...

I spoke to Customer Care, HA HA They said the same thing... So I guess they really want me to spend more money with OCZ!!

Other Thoughts: This is no way to treat a customer... Offer something to keep me as a customer... I really like the product, but I will not return to OCZ to purchase anything unless they back up their product....

5 out of 5 eggsPhenomenally fast

Pros: This drive has seen a lot from my Desktop and I have not been able to slow it down, installation times of software has been unexpectedly fast.

Once the drive initializes, the boot time is faster than I can input my password. I continuously use this as a staging area for Windows Server 2008 and 2012 machines for testing purposes and this drive has made a substantial difference when running multiple machines.

I actually upgraded from an Corsair Performance 3 Series SATA III and this blows it out of the water.

Cons: Perhaps the Size, I could have used more drive space, but that's my bad for not having bought a larger drive.

Other Thoughts: PCI Solid States have a higher chance of failing completely over time, however I have had mine for roughly 7 months now and it has ran great.

Current Build:

MSI 890FXA-GD70 AM3+ AMD 890FX
CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3

5 out of 5 eggsI have the 180GB Previous Generation

Pros: I have the RevoDrive 180GB (2x90GB RAID0)
- Flawless OS Drive
- Bypasses SATA Chipset for the bottlenecks.
- Speeds have not slowed down A SINGLE BIT and I've had this drive running for OVER a year.
- Initial boot times on windows were 8 seconds from first seeing the "Starting Windows", after 1 year the boot time is up to 9 seconds. The Windows logo doesn't even have a chance to fully form

Cons: I didn't have this problem, but for the amateurs who are buying this and are UNABLE to get it to work, please please please please make darn sure that your motherboard supports booting from the PCI-X slots.

Other Thoughts: i5-750 @ 4.0GHz - Noctua DH-D14
Biostar TPower I55
16GB @ 2000MHz RAM
RevoDrive 180GB (2x90GB RAID 0) Boot Drive
1TB Seagate
2x GTX 550TI SLI @ 1060MHz / 4600MHz
775W PSU

4 out of 5 eggsGood product

Pros: This is a good drive, and it performs well.

Cons: It performs but wasn't what I was expecting. The overall boot process takes quite awhile because the controllers have to spin up and initialize(this to me was extremely annoying). I was really looking for something that has a faster boot time and cross platform support. I have yet to get a Linux distribution to work with this drive, only Windows.

Also, I have noticed greater performance out of my Samsung SSD through SATA 3 than with this drive. I guess if you were raiding multiple cards together it would work out better but for the price its just not worth it.

This drive was also complicated for me to get Windows running on. I can't remember how I did it but I had to preload drivers while installing just for the drive to be seen to install on.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for an IDE drive specifically and understand all the circumstances then this is for you. If you just want an SSD and can do SATA then save yourself some frustration and time.

1 out of 5 eggsPCIE OCZ - Not what it should be

Pros: Fast, but not as fast as it says. Only get about 650MB/s burst write on a 10Mb file, get about 150MB/s on a 1Gb file(Mega/Gigate-Bytes) under debian, same in fedora - this is native.

Using it mapped directly to a storage pool for KVM I get near that in the guest, though if I use IOMMU pass through I get less, I suppose it is due to emulated SCSI drivers in windows not accepting it's scsi driver, can't install as a guest either in KVM for a Windows 7 VM.

Can't boot to it from Linux.

Can't boot to it from Windows as a VM.

Cant, Cant, Not -- This is the trend.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!IT IS NOT REFUNDABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cons: The advertised speeds are a just wrong. My Corsair 40GB SATAIII disk can keep up with this in terms of speed, dont waste your money

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!IT IS NOT REFUNDABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Other Thoughts: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!IT IS NOT REFUNDABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1 out of 5 eggsupdated review

Pros: I am sure this is a great product if used with the correct motherboard. Windows 7 will give a 7.9 rating for harddrive speed, BUT I THINK WINDOWS ONLY LOOKS AT HARDWARE AND NOT THE REAL PERFORMANCE. THIS SSD TESTED AT ONLY 345 NOT 975 ADVERTISED WITH MY BOARD

Cons: I installed windows on 2 harddrives then cloned one on to this one. A lot of work to boot windows off this SSD. After a few days of use blue screen every day several time a day. MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OCZ'S PRODUCT PAGE, BY THE WAY THIER SITE SUCKS WITH BROKEN LINKS AND CONFUSING MENUS, MAKE SURE YOU ASK SUPPORT FIRST IF YOUR MOTHERBOARD WILL WORK CORRECTLY!!!

5 out of 5 eggsdoes not work with motherboard raid


Cons: it will not be seen if you use your motherboard controller in Raid or AHCI mode. I had to move all my files off my raid and disable the motherboard raid.

Other Thoughts: The raid information should be stated on the box, discription, and advertisement for this product.

5 out of 5 eggsBlazing Fast and Reliable

Pros: My windows i7 system is very fast with this drive. Windows media center brings up my 200+ album covers in the blink of an eye. Finally a system that boots fast and has menus that respond as fast I can select things.
Can be configured as two drives in striped mode for extra speed.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I configured my system with this as the C drive. This allowed me to use the slower (giggle) 6gbps sata interface for two striped 1 TB drives for storing less frequently manipulated video files and photos etc.
