OCZ shows off RevoDrive X2 PCIe SSD at IDF

OCZ shows off blazing fast PCIe SSD

| Storage News | Posted: Sep 14, 2010 5:12 pm

OCZ has cut back on some of its other projects like notebooks and gaming peripherals this year to focus on core offerings like storage and memory. With IDF in full swing this week, we are seeing some new gear being unveiled and OCZ is on hand at the show with a new SSD. The new SSD is designed to use a PCIe x4 slot rather than the SATA port inside the computer.




The new SSD plugs into x4 PCI Express slot and uses a SandForce processor to provide internal RAID 0 capability. The reason for cramming the SSD into the PCIe port rather than using the SATA port is that the PCIe slot doesn't have the bottleneck that SATA ports suffer from that can impede the performance of an SSD.


The RevoDrive X2 has four internal SSDs that are set up for RAID 0 and the SSD is bootable. The drive promises performance of 740MB/s when reading and 730MB/s when writing. OCZ claims 4K random write performance of up to 120K IOPS. TechPowerUp reports that a live demo at IDF showed 107,124 IOPS.
