OCZ RevoDrive PCIe SSD for Consumers Released
OCZ has released the RevoDrive PCI-Express SSD, one of the first PCIe SSDs designed for the consumer market. The RevoDrive comes in 120GB and 240GB capacities and delivers speeds of 540MB/s read, 480MB/s write and random small file writes up to 75,000 IOPS.
The magic behind the speed comes from a proprietary RAID0 design. This allows for not only the fast top-level numbers, but also speeds of up to 400MB/s for sustained writes. The drive is also bootable, which is a first for consumer grade PCIe SSDs.
Other highlights include a three year warranty, 2 million hour MTBF and power consumption of 3W Idle and 8W active.
The OCZ RevoDrive comes in 120GB and 240GB capacities, with prices of $389.99 and $699.99 respectively.
