OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid 1TB Review

 

Taking hybrid storage to the next level.

Performance as good as regular SSD, Transfer speeds are incredibly high, High storage capacity

High entry price, If something goes wrong, both SSD & HDD will be unusable

Ideally you’ll be using the RevoDrive Hybrid as a bootable drive, because after installing Windows 7, you’ll need to download the Dataplex software from OCZ’s website as well. Dataplex, however, can only be downloaded once you enter the CDkey that...

I don't think we are very far away from a time when all new personal computers ship with some form of cache system installed at the factory. Just a few days ago I saw a Youtube video of a motherboard still in the 3D modeling stages with a SandForce...

OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid PCI Express SSD Review

 

VCA (Virtualized Controller Architecture) 2.0. The first product to arrive was the RevoDrive 3 X2, which is a high-end, PCI Express SSD targeted at ultra-enthusiasts and workstation customers. Then came the extreme OCZ Z-Drive R4 PCIe SSD, which caters...

Super Fast Under Ideal Conditions ; Tiny and no power connectors required ; Cache algo works very quickly

Somewhat pricey ; Slow HD speeds with uncached data ; Must be installed as the boot volume (currently)

The OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid's performance is difficult to characterize. On some levels, the RevoDrive Hybrid offers exceptional performance, as we saw in the ATTO benchmark. Although not part of any specific benchmark, the RevoDrive Hybrid also performed...

OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid 1TB PCI-E SSD Review

 

What happens when you take the screamingly fast, PCI-E based OCZ RevoDrive and physically pair it with a 1TB hard drive? You get the best of both storage worlds with both high speed and high capacity. But can the RevoDrive Hybrid compare favorably to a...

OCZ's RevoDrive Hybrid, their latest twist on the PCI-E SSD genre, is something that users without SATA III supporting hardware may give serious consideration to, but those that have more modern boards have more compelling options to choose from.

OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid PCIe (100GB SSD / 1TB HDD) Review

 

Today's review product see's OCZ attempt to find a middle ground between the capacity of a mechanical drive and the speed of an SSD. That product is the RevoDrive Hybrid a PCIe based model which is part flash memory and part 1TB 2.5" hard drive.

An ideal solution for those who want the benefits of a high capacity SSD without the costs normally associated with 1TB of NAND Flash storage.
