Additional Information

Express Solid State Drives were designed with power users and work station users in mind where storage I/O performance is essential for maximum productivity. Eliminating the SATA bottleneck, the PCIe-based Revo 3X2 delivers ground-breaking 1GB/s of bandwidth and 130,0004 KB random write IOPS making this an ideal SSD for intensive multithreaded workloads, multimedia design, and work station applications. Along with unprecedented performance, the Revo3X2 features OCZ's proprietary Virtualized Controller Architecture (VCA) 2.0 which provides features including TRIM support and SMART data monitoring, something previously unheard of with PCIe solutions. In addition, the Revo3X2's Super Scale storage accelerator enables scalable SSD performance and significantly reduces the host CPU burden inherent to competing PCIe storagefferings. The Revo Drive3X2 series is a premium feature rich storage solution that delivers superior performance and reliability through innovative design.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I was planning to max out my gaming rig and thus did some research on PCI-E SSD to find one that can replace my Vertex 3 SSD drive.

Eventually narrowed down to the OCZ revodrive 3 X2 which is effectively a RAID-0 setup on a single PCI-E card with specs that seem to promise top performance of 1.5GB/S read and 1.225GB/s write which is quite top of the line.

Bought the drive, flashed the firmware to latest version 2.11 and gave it a run with Windows 7 Ultimate. Everything went well and after some runs of real life applications and games, the performance is not distinctly different from that of the Vertex 3 as per what I read from the web.

In some cases where there were intensive I/Os, the speed is faster on the revodrive though so its beauty will only show in such high load cases. So if you have a lot of such applications that can drive the max out, this will be the SSD to go.

Do note that as this is going to be detected as a standalone RAID... Read more
So, I've only had this drive a few days. I have already read that this SSD can get really hot, so I already got myself a small ball baring fan that I was able to screw on the heat sink. When installing the Windows Disk at boot, I followed the instructions to the T for this drive and when/how to instal the driver, it's very specific to do it correctly when you intend to use it for a Boot drive. So here is the thing... I have the MSI BIG Bang-Xpower (MS-7666) X58 mother board and I could not find a single thread online that stated this PCIe card would work on this motherboard in boot-up setup, even OCZ's "compatible" motherboard list doesn't include this board. So I looked and saw on MSI's website that they released a bios update on 1 7 2011 that specifically states it now supports the OCZ PCIe cards. So, here I am with a working card on this older mother board. It's a great board and I was not ready to upgrade. I also have the i7 990X processor, so I have a nice set up. Anyhow, a... Read more
I use the drive to boot win7. Setting it up was painless with the clear and simple instructions. (All things for computers should be this good). In comparison, win7 boots faster than the time it takes to run bios and self check (on Asus Rampage IV Formula MB). It saves me time everyday. I use a 3D drafting program with the a auto save feature. The drive is so fast, I don't realize that the program is saving the file I am working on. The software would always lag and would sometimes crash using auto save on a SATA 3gb speed hard drive. When for other reasons the software crashes, the Revo Drive loads it back up so quickly it makes me smile. Loading large drafting files from the Revo Drive is a pleasure as well.

As for packaging, It is well protected in a box that is mostly foam padding, in short have no worries about having it shipped to you even if the seller were to put a stamp on it and drop it a mailbox.

In a review someone said that it runs hot, so I bought... Read more
