Did our footage of OCZ’s new RevoDrive 3 X2 whet your appetite for more info on the super speedy SSD? Well, your wish is the web’s command, and we’ve got a full roundup of reviews that’ll tell you all you need to know. After putting OCZ’s latest through its paces, the consensus is that the SSD is seriously quick in remembering and retrieving data. According to Tom’s Hardware, the RevoDrive 3 X2 — with its max 1.5GBps read and 1.2GBps write speeds — “smokes everything” they’ve had pass through their lab. However, AnandTech noted that such capacious bandwidth is “simply overkill” for most users, as the drive only really flexes its muscles once the queue depth increases from enterprise-level workloads. Several sites noted that the lack of TRIM support on Windows machines was also a concern, and that more cost effective (albeit slower) storage solutions can be had with a DIY RAID array of SATA SSDs. Of course, you don’t have to take our word for it, get down to the nitty gritty in the links below.
