We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: AVADirect, GIGABYTE, Cooler Master, LSI and Noctua.

You can read more about TweakTown's Storage Product Testing Workstation and the procedures followed to test products in this article.

Today we are going to test the OCZ Technology RevoDrive X2 to the original RevoDrive and also a handful of other significant SSDs past and present. For the X2 we left the card configured as it ships from OCZ.


ATTO Baseline Performance

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34

ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers.

Given that ATTO is the standard in which performance ratings are listed by manufacturers, we see that OCZ is selling the RevoDrive X2 short on the read speeds. Our tests gave us up to 822MB/s. OCZ rates the RevoDrive X2 at 740MB/s. Maybe they were just being conservative.

The write test gave us just over 683MB/s. This is just over what OCZ claims their smaller X2 drives run at, but shy from the 720MB/s that the larger drives are rated for.
