'My SSD Is Faster than Your HDD' just doesn't seem to fit the part when we are speaking of the OCZ RevoDrive x2 PCIe SSD. Anytime you consider a product that is controlled by four (4) SandForce SF-1200 series controllers, prepare to be amazed. The RevoDrive x2 should knock your socks off with advertised specs of 740MB/s read and 690MB/s write and 4k random write of 100, 000 IOPS.
A few weeks back we had the opportunity to take the OCZ RevoDrive 120GB PCIe for a ride and were so impressed that we asked OCZ just how much better the RevoDrive x2 would be in PCMark Vantage testing. As the Vantage HDD Suite consists of 8 scenarios that simulate common user activities, our opinion is that this software is simply the best testing environment for any solid state drive. The Revo did so well, in fact, that it easily surpassed benchmarks that we had done with RAIDED SSDs just prior to that evaluation. Our curiosity was in the thought that, sooner or later, performance increase just had to reach a plateau....or so we thought.
Any major computer upgrade generally requires a full software reinstall too. No so if you heed the advice in the guide to Upgrading a Motherboard without Reinstalling. PCSTATS Tips
