OCZ doubles down with four SandForce controllers and 240GB of flash memory all wrapped up in a convenient PCIe card that rocked our test bench.

I really feel kind of cheated today after testing OCZ Technology's newest high-performance SSD. Testing hardware gives me a little bit of free time. No kids in the computer room, the wife knows I can't be disturbed and the dog even seems to bark at people driving past a little less. Testing hardware gives me a chance to sit back with my feet on the desk and relax. Normally that is the case and I get a good deal of time to chill, but not with the OCZ RevoDrive X2. I was cheated today.

The OCZ RevoDrive X2 is the extension of the already very fast RevoDrive that we looked at just a couple of months ago. As you might have guessed from the name, the X2 has two times the amount of bang; it isn't just a shotgun, it is a double barrel. OCZ achieved twice the nice by adding on a daughter board that doubles the amount of SandForce controllers and flash memory.

The original RevoDrive was essentially a two drive RAID 0 array packed on a convenient PCI Express card and allowed users to indulge in RAID performance without the hassles of building a RAID array. Four SSDs in RAID 0 is kind of like the sweet spot since going over four adds very little to real world performance other than capacity.

If you are someone that likes your intensive tasks to take a while, giving you the opportunity to read the daily newspaper or slowly sip away at your coffee, then quickly close this page and hope your IT guys don't read what I am about to post. If you like it low and slow then the X2 isn't for you, turn away now. If by some chance you actually like your tasks to go very fast, then scoot closer to the screen!

Let's check out the specs on the OCZ Technology X2.
