OCZ SSD RevoDrive X2 240GB MLC PCIe
The OCZ SSD RevoDrive X2 claims read and write throughput of 740MB/s and 720MB/s. The RevoDrive X2 can use PCIe x4 courtesy of the Pericom PCI-X to PCIe bridge chip, which converts the parallel PCI-X signaling into serial PCIe. The advantage to using PCIe x4 opposed to the SATA interface is that it provides far more bandwidth. The Serial ATA 3Gb/s bus is only capable of connecting devices at transfer speeds of about 300MB/s. The RevoDrive X2 uses the PCI Express 4x bus which allows speeds of up to 1GB/s.
Incredible read and write performance.
Competitively priced when compared to 4 high performance drives to be used in RAID 0.
Easier to install than a 2.5" drive.
Available in capacities up to 960GB.
Delivers approximately 120,000 4K IOPS in Iometer.
Best IOPS performance available to consumers.
DuraWrite technology extends NAND lifetime.
Price is high when compared to more conventional 100GB SSDs.
Have to have a free x4 (or greater) PCI Express slot available.
No TRIM support.
SiI3124 RAID controller lacks NCQ, SMART, and TRIM pass through.

OCZ Technology has another winner on its hands with the RevoDrive X2 100GB PCI Express SSD! It is hard not to be impressed by an SSD that offers read speeds of up to 740MB/s and write speeds of up to 690MB/s. Top speeds like that are obviously...-

The OCZ RevoDrive X2 is one of the fastest storage options available and isn't much more expensive than a standard SSD of the same capacity. However a lack of TRIM support, lower IOPS with tiny files and its limitation to desktop PCs means...80

Just as with the original RevoDrive, the X2 version lives up to its reputation and delivers a massive boost of speed as a unique PCI Express hard drive platform. While the drive did have some issues with small file sizes, the overall transfer speeds...-
