Incredible Performance for Workstation Professionals
Designed with power users and multimedia designers in mind, the RevoDrive 3 SSD Series provides the ultimate storage solution for intensive workstation applications with maximum performance and a sophisticated feature-set based on OCZ's proprietary Virtualized Controller Architecture 2.0 (VCA) technology.
The RevoDrive 3 provides unique benefits to users by incorporating features from the VCA 2.0 flash virtualization software that allow certain direct memory access (DMA) and data management functions. Included in this feature-set are OCZ’s exclusive command queuing and queue balancing algorithms, which can be handled by the onboard processing core for higher performance and reduced burden on the host resources. VCA 2.0 is also the only virtualization layer in the industry with TRIM and SCSI unmap support to enhance sustained performance and provide greater endurance by significantly reducing the overhead associated with garbage collection. Furthermore, VCA also offers consolidated SMART support and provides system administrators with advanced features for monitoring, analyzing, and reporting device attributes.
With an all-new architecture, the RevoDrive 3 shatters its predecessor’s performance record and is faster than comparable solutions ten times the price. The dual-controller RevoDrive 3 delivers up to 1GB/s of bandwidth and up to 130,000 IOPS (4KB random write) under HPC or workstation workloads with a single-card solution. Additionally, the RevoDrive 3 offers ample capacity for users in media development and management looking for more storage room.
Available in 120GB, 240GB and 480GB capacities, the OCZ RevoDrive 3 provides incredible performance for data warehousing, applications, multimedia files, and operating systems with the superior durability, energy efficiency, and reliability of SSDs.
The IOPS are on a highly competitive level. If we consider the price, then we can recommend this expansion card for consumer grade workstations where one has to keep the cost factor in mind. Read More →
With the latest SSDs again reaching SATA III speed limit we see more PCIe storage solutions becoming available to feed the everlasting hunger for speed. The most elegant of all... the RevoDrive 3 from OCZ. Read More →
RevoDrive 3 again raising the bar for PCI-e solid state drives and doing so with two fewer onboard controllers. As I keep saying at the end of each solid state drive review, this is the fastest drive we have tested to date. And the catch here is that this isn't even the fastest Revo 3 that OCZ offers.
