The OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2
Here we get our first look at a full retail OCZ RevoDrive 3 X3. A heatsink covers the VCA 2.0 controller and the SandForce SF-2281 controllers are broken into two groups. A set of SSD controllers are located on the main card with the accompanying flash and a second set are on the daughterboard.
The card itself uses a PCIe 2.0 4-lane connector that fits in your motherboard.
Each SandForce controller gets sixteen 8GB asynchronous flash chips. The best comparison we can give is four 120GB Agility 3 drives running on a software RAID controller. Just this RAID controller has special magic for TRIM and SMART data .and fits in a single PCIe slot. It's also the coolest looking SSD we'll likely see all year.
Micron flash was used and there are a total of 64 individual flash chips total.
Looking at the card from the side, it reminds me of an old ISA modem I used to have.
The RevoDrive 3 can actually move 56K of data faster than you can think AOL. I did find this sticker interesting. When the drive is installed in most computer cases the sticker is upside down.
