OCZ's RevoDrive series has been a popular enthusiast and workstation-class storage product family for years now.  The last time we looked at an OCZ RevoDrive, the RevoDrive 3 X2 offered smoking-fast performance and bandwidth of up to 1.5GB/sec for reads and 1.25GB/sec for writes, thanks to its PCI Express-based design, which basically comprises four Sandforce-based SSDs on a single card...  Since then, OCZ was acquired by Toshiba and has been going through its product stack, revamping their SSD portfolio with fresh re-designs based on Toshiba NAND Flash memory...

OCZ has now replaced the RevoDrive 3 series with an almost completely re-designed product that we'll be looking at today.  The RevoDrive 350 is based on the same OCZ VCA 2.0 (Virtualized Controller Architecture) technology as the previous generation but is now enabled with a PCI Express X8 card interface and up to 4 LSI SandForce SD-2282 SSD processors, along with 19nm Toshiba NAND Flash.  The good news is, not only is the new RevoDrive 350 faster at 1.8GB/sec claimed bandwidth for sequential reads and 1.7GB/sec for sequential writes, but it's also significantly more affordable, at literally half the price of the previous gen RevoDrive 3.

This is a REALLY nice PCIe SSD and it's crazy fast. Nice work OCZ!

"couple of odd valleys in both read and write bandwidth at the 256MB and 1024MB marks for the RevoDrive 350"


*KB not MB.

I will try to put this as politely as possible. I am becoming aroused.

Glad to hear OCZ didn't mess around succedding the RevoDrive 3 X2; it's impressive that it's significantly cheaper than the the RevoDrive 3 X2.
