OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 PCIe SSD Performance Preview

19 thumbs up
The following PCMark Vantage HDD tests are more write intensive and in some cases stress the Achilles' Heel of the average storage subsystem, that being random write performance.

Here again we see mostly decisive victories for OCZ's RevoDrive 3 X2, with only one marginal shortfall in the Application loading test, where Fusion-io's ioDrive squeaks out the top spot.  Other than that, we see a sizable lead for the RevoDrive 3 in Windows Media Center and Movie Maker with a virtual draw versus the LSI WarpDrive in the Windows Media Player test.

That thing is a beast!

It would take 3 Vertex 3s to match the speeds of this 1 drive. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me!

My question is... is there a way to RAID these things yet? lol

That is some crazy fast performance on the RevoDrive 3. I'm fairly impressed but like was mentioned they need to work out the 64-bit performance issues; I will certainly consider getting my first SSD from OCZ, definitely one of the lesser priced options though.  Thanks for the review Dave.

I know what I'm upgrading my desktop to now. Well, I'll make sure they have the 64-bit drivers fixed so I can boot fine.

OCZ IMO is a leader in the SSD space.

The Hard Drive is the biggest bottleneck in today's machines.

I would love to have a simple SSD I could only imagine this bad boy!

Freaking amazing... Agreed on the 64-bit issue though, that is going to make it a tough sell for servers since just about all of them now at 64-bit and even home machines are going that route.

The 64-bit driver issue is temporary and I'm hearing revised final product will be shipping in the next week or two.

Amazing. Can't wait for these technologies to drop price.

"I honestly thought that we would have to wait at least Q2-Q3 2012 for a PCI Express SSD of this caliber to be priced so affordable (240GB) yet so fast, amazing . I see that it still has the power stand by bug, but OCZ will worked that out, which is why this article is still tagged as a Preview."

"Off course, the suggested retail price is $699, but knowing OCZ and Newegg, I expect $649 (240GB) when it debuts, and maybe $500 to $549 around the holidays."
