OCZ RevoDrive X2 240GB PCI Express SSD Review

 

How can you improve on OCZ Technology's original RevoDrive (reviewed November 2010), which binds two SandForce SF-1200 SSDs to a PCI-E card? You add another two SSDs for a quad-drive SSD. That's what OCZ did for the RevoDrive X2.

Incredible speeds in high-load and real-world tests; no SATA cables required; bootable

Finicky with some motherboards; pricey; no Trim support

With capacities that range from 100GB to 960GB, the RevoDrive X2 makes a disk-less PC seem almost feasible—if you don’t mind dropping a bundle of money. The 960GB version is a cool $3,300, while the 240GB model we tested goes for $600. It’s a tempting...

A Quick Look at OCZ's RevoDrive x2: IBIS Performance without HSDL

 

A week after I previewed OCZ's IBIS and the HSDL interface , SandForce revealed the specs of its next-generation enterprise SSD controller . The specs for the SF-2000 series call for up to 500MB/s sequential reads and writes, nearly saturating the...

SSD RevoDrive X2 de OCZ no decepciona en los análisis

 

muy rápido. De hecho, los chicos de Hot Hardware no han dudado en catalogarla como "una de las soluciones SSD PCI Express más rápidas" que han probado, ofreciendo resultados similares a los del ioXtreme de Fusion-io con un precio más bajo. En Tweak...

OCZ RevoDrive X2 160GB PCIe SSD

 

Solid State Drives have come a long way over the past few years and OCZ has actually been one of the companies that have constantly pushed the boundaries of "standard" SSDs into sometime different. They don't settle for technology that has limitations...

Very fast performance ; On-board RAID 0 array ; Available up to 960GB

Expensive ; Motherboard compatibility is limited

OCZ has pushed the boundaries on performance with their RevoDrive units, but they certainly aren't for everyone. The performance potential of these units is incredible, but you have to remember that you'll need an extra PCIe 4x slot available....

OCZ RevoDrive X2 100GB PCI-E Solid State Drive Review

 

OCZ is no stranger to creating some of the fastest solid state drives available. We know this from our reviews of the original RevoDrive and the Vertex 3 drive.

– The fastest Solid State Drive we have tested! ; – Bootable ; – Available in capacities up to 960GB ; – Onboard RAID

– No TRIM support

There is no doubt that the RevoDrive X2 is one of the fastest solid state drive solutions available today, even with SATA 6GB/s solid state drives coming out they still cannot beat the RevoDrive X2! When I originally reviewed the first RevoDrive I was...

OCZ RevoDrive X2 PCI-E Solid State Drive

 

Short of an enterprise drive like the Z-Drive R3, the RevoDrive X2 is currently the fastest consumer level solid state drive that OCZ offers. There are other names that produce PCIe SSDs, such as Fusion-io, but as of writing all of their product...

OCZ RevoDrive x2 240GB PCIe SSD - bigger and faster!

 

Today Allyn looks at the next iteration of the OCZ RevoDrive - the x2! This new card opens up two more channels of throughput over the RevoDrive, demonstrating how well the SI RAID solution can scale with quad-Sandforce units behind it.
