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 1GBps 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 6Gbps solutions – up to 1000MB975MBps read and 900 875 MBps write speeds, and incredible random write up to 130120,000 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.

2 out of 5 eggsRandom Access Read, ANEMIC speeds

Pros: Sequential read and write is crazy, 900mbs anyways going both ways without sweating. The problem is you start running into mobo/other limits when you get this fast. Also access times are re-dunkulous, that's the PCIe talking here.

Cons: The random read performance, which your PC does constantly to access files and most of it's operation (a bunch of 1mb-50mb executables), is THREE (3) TIMES SLOWER than the not-so-new Samsung SATA3 SSDs. My usage was for a SQL server and heavy application use computer with lots of ram and this was a total waste for it. I don't blame the product, I blame myself for not being educated enough.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you know what you need it for. 10GB file transfers? Right on this is a good gig...which makes no sense since it's only 120gb. Man just get a samsung 840, it does everything really well and costs $40 less than this refurb

5 out of 5 eggswhat a relief

Pros: when the board is happy with the PCI-e Revodrive card, it lets you know immediately, and the Revodrive3 seems as broadly compatible as the Revodrive. the x2 is another matter, in deference to all those controllers, and the havoc wreaked on mb bios memory.
a happy Revodrive3 is a speedy SSD. although claiming to be a SATAIII, the direct access actually renders a noticeably quicker venue. so, i'm happy. oh, yes, it was a breeze loading and using Windows 8 and 8.1.

Cons: well, make sure you keep your video card in the number one slot, or things will get creepy.

Other Thoughts: i'm simply glad the Revodrive 3 fits my mobos as I've had multiple headaches with the x2 product, which, it seems gobble memory, actually hog it, and will freeze the bootup sequence if permitted, as in, flash your bios and hope things are still compatible...with the x2, that is. i'm avoiding the Revodrive3 x2 for reasons similar to my terrible experience with the Revodrive x2.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent produit mais...

Pros: Vitesses Read/Write en Mb/s incroyables (2 fois plus qu'un SSD actuel selon mes benchs)
Qualité générale du produit et du fabricant
Site web du fabricant et forum

Cons: 1) La mise à jour du firmware et du bios DOIT se faire avec une connexion Internet filaire active
2) Haaaaaa l'installation... soit que tout se passe bien, soit que tout se passe mal. Je suis bon en informatique, mais de découvrir qu'après avoir «loader» le pilote du disque lors de l'installation de Windows 7, il faut cliquer sur la croix pour fermer la fenêtre d'installation, accepter de retourner au début du processus d'installation de Windows et de refaire les mêmes étapes jusqu'à la fenêtre du choix du disque... où Windows 7 trouve enfin le OCZ Revodrive 3 comme disque d'installation.
3) Quand un produit est «bien fait», mais que l'on doit avoir un forum où des centaines de personnes ont des problèmes de toutes sortes, ça signifie parfois que le produit manque de maturité...

Other Thoughts: Lisez le guide d'installation d'OCZ, mais surtout, consulter les guides et forum.
Bref, un très bon produit pour un usage et un professionnel.
