Description

Designed with power users and multimedia designers in mind, the RevoDrive 3 SSD Series provides the ultimate storage solution for intensive workstation applications with maximum performance and a sophisticated feature-set based on OCZ's proprietary Virtualized Controller Architecture 2.0 (VCA) technology.

The RevoDrive 3 provides unique benefits to users by incorporating features from the VCA 2.0 flash virtualization software that allow certain direct memory access (DMA) and data management functions. Included in this feature-set are OCZ's exclusive command queuing and queue balancing algorithms, which can be handled by the onboard processing core for higher performance and reduced burden on the host resources. VCA 2.0 is also the only virtualization layer in the industry with TRIM and SCSI unmap support to enhance sustained performance and provide greater endurance by significantly reducing the overhead associated with garbage collection. Furthermore, VCA also offers consolidated SMART support and provides system administrators with advanced features for monitoring, analyzing, and reporting device attributes.

The RevoDrive 3 shatters its predecessor's performance record and is faster than comparable solutions ten times the price. Additionally, the Revo3 offers ample capacity for users in media development and management looking for more storage room.

The OCZ RevoDrive 3 provides incredible performance for data warehousing, applications, multimedia files, and operating systems with the superior durability, energy efficiency, and reliability of SSDs.

to get a Windows Performance Index 7.9 it has to be the primary drive(C) in your PC. The the others can be a raid or whatever (Windows Performance Index 6.4 if raid5) Dontforget to make a backup (laplink or true image) takes ages(hours).

This always appears as the first bootable device, which means that if you are looking to upgrade your PC, you need to install Windows on it. This means moving your old PC to this new drive which may be smaller that your existing C drive. This also means when you are installing windows, you need to swap out your Windows install CD and replace it with the miniture CD with the drivers on. Its best to go for 64bit when you are making this choice (then get some fast ram). Once done, your PC boots up about 4 times faster. Make sure you also put your swap file onto this drive and activate Windows Boost for this drive. You might want to move your 'My Documents' folder to your old C drive or D drive. If your old C drive was a Raid, then accessing that is now a pain so back that up with something like Archonis True Image. All of this activity is not a quickie. As ram is getting so cheap, you could even create a RamDrive for your TEMP folder. Contrast this to the 'OCZ Technology 1TB Z-Drive'
