Although the real-world testing might have been a little disappointing, the RevoDrive X2 looks impressive when running synthetic benchmark software such as CrystalDiskMark. As you can see the sequential read performance hit 651MB/s while the write performance reached 389MB/s. Both were considerably higher than anything we've ever seen from a consumer SSD.

The 512K performance is also very strong, as read results hit 561MB/s and write throughput reached 372MB/s. This made the RevoDrive X2 around 2.6 times faster than the Vertex 2 Pro 100GB when measuring read performance and 4 times faster in write performance.

The random 4K-QD32 performance is impressive as the OCZ RevoDrive X2 240GB was 3.4 times speedier than the Vertex 2 Pro 100GB when measuring read and write performance. The read throughput still reached 477MB/s while the write throughput hit 356MB/s.
