The OCZ Technology RevoDrive
Here we get our first look at the OCZ RevoDrive. There is a lot going on with this side of the card and we can follow the traces to see how the card operates.
On the back there is very little to see other than the sixteen Intel flash chips.

From the PCIe connector signals are routed through a Pericom PCI-X bridge chip. From there the signal goes to a Silicon Image Sil3124 RAID controller.
The Sil3124 allows for up to 1064MB/s of bandwidth to a PCI-X host. From there the signal is routed to two SandForce SF-1200 controller chips that can pretty much be considered Vertex 2 drives.
Since the Silicon Image RAID controller is a fully functional and fully configurable RAID device, you are able to fine tune your RAID configuration.
