The 540 MB/s RevoDrive: PCIe-based SSD from OCZ
OCZ is definitely one of the hottest players in the SSD marketplace with scores of models (and slight variations of models) on the market. The company is also very quick to introduce new technology. The latest announcement from OCZ is their new RevoDrive – a PCIe-based solid state drive that might actually find its way into some high-end consumer workstations.
When you start talking about the numbers, these drives are bound to raise an eyebrow or two and induce a strong “must-have” feeling in any performance junkie. Thanks to their utilization of the PCI Express interface, the transfer rates are something out of the ordinary. It removes the bottleneck in the SATA standard and offers reads of up to 540 MB/s and writes of up to 480 MB/s. In addition, they provide up to 75,000 IOPS at 4K writes.
