OCZ unveils "affordable" PCI-Express SSD, RevoDrive

By on
OCZ took the opportunity at Computex 2010 to showcase its latest additions to its already broad solid-state drives lineup. Dubbed RevoDrive, this new product is designed to slip into a PCI Express x4 slot and employs two SandForce SF-1222 controllers in RAID mode for maximum performance -- up to 540MB/s reads and 530MB/s writes, as well as 75,000 IOPS. It's a compact version of last year's Z-Drive for high-performance gaming PCs and workstations.


OCZ calls this bootable drive "affordable", though it stops short of revealing the actual price tag (or an expected release date, for that matter). It should be available in capacities ranging from 120 to 480GB using the less expensive NAND flash memory when it finally launches. The company also showed off new 1.8-inch Vertex 2 and Onyx II SSDs aimed at ultrathin notebooks, netbooks, nettops, and tablets. These drives will be available "in a range of capacities" featuring a SATA 3Gb/s interface and Windows 7's TRIM feature. Unfortunately, again, OCZ gave no pricing or release details.
