OCZ RevoDrive X2 100GB PCI Express Hard Drive Review



Now we can get to the part everyone has been waiting for, including myself! To test the RevoDrive X2 100GB, I installed it into the PCI Express x4 slot on the M4A89GTD PRO/USB motherboard running version 1606 for the BIOS. I used a clean install of Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and updated the OS before performing any of the benchmarks. All the tests for the RevoDrive X2 and the comparison drives were performed with the same updated fresh install of Windows 7 so you can get a real world look at the performance while using it as a boot drive. For the comparison drives, I included the original RevoDrive 50GB drive, several SandForce SF-1200 based drives, and a few Indilix based drives to show the differences. I also included a comparison RAID array made up of two SandForce SF-1222 based solid state drives running RAID-0 using the onboard controller running through the SB850 chipset of the motherboard. Throughout the testing, all the hardware remained at the same speeds, timings, voltages, and latencies to keep any variables from interfering with the scores.
