We have in our labs the OCZ Revodrive, a high performance PCIe Solid State Drive (SSD) for consumer applications in desktops and workstation PCs. Moving beyond the bottleneck of SATA II, the RevoDrive features a PCI-E interface and promises to deliver...-

Ever the SSD innovator, OCZ's PCIe-based RevoDrive is a bit of corker. While the SATA 3Gbps and SATA 6Gbps interfaces are still along way off causing major bandwidth problems for mechanical hard drives, the same cannot be said for SSDs. And for...90

The 80 GB OCZ Revodrive performed very well in all tests and performs about as well as two individual drives connected through an Intel Southbridge. Write speeds are slightly diminished, however, compared to two individual 40 GB drives in RAID0,...-

The OCZ RevoDrive 120GB is easily the fastest SSD we've tested and was particularly dominant in our file copy and application tests. However, as it is essentially composed of a pair of SandForce-based SSDs running in RAID 0, we were expecting more...-

The performance of the RevoDrive is excellent. There is no doubt that the RevoDrive will get the job done faster. The RevoDrive is priced slightly higher than SSDs at similar capacity, yet performs faster than those drives due to the RAID 0...90

The OCZ RevoDrive is one hell of a drive. We have yet to test anything like it, or even as fast for that matter. With maximum Read speeds of 513MB/s and Write speeds of 434MB/s, according to our ATTO test, the Revo definitely performed as advertised....-
