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.

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...

We've had a play with OCZ's first take on the PCIe-based SSD, the OCZ RevoDrive 120GB and you could colour us fairly impressed. A little while later and the OCZ RevoDrive X2 240GB has found itself slotted into our test bench.OCZ's first...

There is no doubt that the RevoDrive X2 is one of the fastest solid state drive solutions available today, even with SATA 6GB/s solid state drives coming out they still cannot beat the RevoDrive X2! When I originally reviewed the first RevoDrive I...

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...

Rarely do you find a product that is revolutionary in its approach to computing. We have seen many products come into our hands at Vortez which could be classed as innovative, but revolutionary? This is an entirely different thing altogether. The...

It's expensive, but this is the fastest consumer SSD out there....

By OverClock Intelligence Agency on

Short of an enterprise drive like the Z-Drive R3, the RevoDrive X2 is currently the fastest consumer level solid state drive that OCZ offers. There are other names that produce PCIe SSDs, such as Fusion-io, but as of writing all of their product...

How can you improve on OCZ Technology’s original RevoDrive (reviewed November 2010), which binds two SandForce SF-1200 SSDs to a PCI-E card? You add another two SSDs for a quad-drive SSD. That’s what OCZ did for the RevoDrive X2. The...

As we've said before and we'll continue to hammer any chance we can get, the single biggest bottleneck in modern systems is the traditional plattered hard drive. Using an SSD in your system will make such a massive difference that you'll...

If you’re a typical desktop user, OCZ’s RevoDrive X2 is like an AR-15 rifle in California. It’s cool to own, but it’s expensive and you can’t really use it the way it was designed to be used. For those of you who do know...

Especially regarding sequential throughput rates the OCZ Revo Drive X2 impressed us. When reading 128 KByte blocks there was a peak in throughput performance of an astonishing 933 MByte/s. On average sequential write and read performance are 671...

A couple of weeks ago when we reviewed OCZ's IBIS SSD, we were very much impressed to observe where technology is heading and most of all, how seriously fast SSD technology is becoming. When we tested the IBIS, we obviously also realized that...

Kitguru has reviewed a wide cross section of SSD’s since we opened earlier this year, but today we are looking at something a little different. OCZ have been at the forefront of SSD development, continually pushing the technology into new and...

It is inevitable that the OCZ RevoDrive X2 will be directly compared to purchasing 4 separate OCZ Vertex 2 SSDs, and then creating your own RAID array. The price of 4 separate Vertex 2 SSDs will be cheaper than the RevoDrive X2, but if you connect...

Many consumers will be put off OCZ's RevoDrive X2 by its relatively-high asking price. But put the hardware in context, and you may find the RevoDrive X2 to be a reasonable prospect. Compared to four Vertex SSDs and a hardware RAID controller,...
