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 three times faster performance than SATA 6Gb/s solutions - up to 1000MB/s read and 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.

5 out of 5 eggsCrossing my fingers on longevity...

Pros: This thing is fast. Really fast.
Also, I had no issue at all not only installing it, but cloning my old SSD to it on my OptiPlex 9010. Unplug old SSD, and good to go.

Cons: It's refurbished. I have really no idea the wear cycles on it. I'll be interested to know if it has any longevity in it.

Other Thoughts: Did I mention it's fast. Because it is.

4 out of 5 eggsBlazing quick

Pros: Solid performer with exceptional speed.

Cons: Needs some heavy tech knowledge to get windows installed, up and running.

Other Thoughts: I buy reverts all the time. Always have good luck. If a factory produces 1000 of these cards they inspect 100. Typically. A revert is fully inspected and war rented. Why WOULDN'T I get a recert.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after a week

Pros: Worked Great for a week

Cons: Died after a week of operation. Filled out an RMA with OCZ and see how they handle this. Drive shows on system for about 4 minutes and then just drop off and no longer can be found.

5 out of 5 eggsFeedback Update

Pros: I gave the one-egg review and feel that I need to update.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: When I bought this, I wrongly assumed that it would be a simple install as pulling my old OCZ PCIe SSD out and installing this one. It wasn't. I did several things such as reset the BIOS and hours of changing values to see if something else would work without results. I boxed it up with my RMA number taped to the outside ready to give up, that's when I decided to tear back into the box and try one last thing.

I moved my video card from one slot to an open one and installed this drive in the slot that the video card once was. It worked! And, it's been working as advertised since. Obviously there are some compatibility issues with my 5 year old motherboard. :) We'll see how it does, but if it's anything like the last OCZ PCIe SSD that it's replacing, I think I'll be good to go for a long while.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA...That's what I get for buying a refurb

Pros: 240G is much more space than the 46G OCZ PCIe SSD that I was replacing. I imagine that the PCIe 2.0x4 would be fast.

PDQ shipping from Newegg. Hassle free RMA thus far.

Cons: As soon as I received this on my doorstep, I anxiously downloaded the drivers to a thumbdrive, removed my old PCIe SSD from the slot and installed this one. When I powered up my PC, I got a blank screen, not even a bios screen. I powered down the PC and removed the drive (which had gotten fairly warm (after 4-5 minutes) and powered up the PC with no drives. The bios screen came up. I installed my old PCIe SSD and it started right up. I re-installed the new one just to check it one more time and still got nothing.

Other Thoughts: I guess that's what I get for buying refurbished. I'm a bit disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsReal nice drive

Pros: Real fast and enough space for OS + a few games

Cons: Need drivers to install windows. Not really compatible with latest Linux.

Other Thoughts: Overall a pretty good drive with enough speed for almost anything you throw at it. The drive is detected as 2x120Gb drives so you need RAID drivers before you can install Windows on it and Linux doesn't really have updated drivers that work with it.
