OCZ RevoDrive 3 240GB PCI-E Solid State Drive Review

With all of the SATA 6GB/s drives coming out this year we have really pushed the limits of solid state drives.  Most of the solid state drives we have tested max out at about 550MB/s.  We are not going to see a SATA-connected drive go much faster than that until the next revision of SATA, which will not come for a while.  So if you want to get faster speeds you will either need to RAID your drives or choose a different interface.  OCZ has been at the forefront of PCI-E solid state drive development with the RevoDrive series.  Now on its third version of the drive it is powered by the latest SandForce controller and boasts speed of 1000MB/s read and 900MB/s write!  Let’s take a look at the 240GB version of the drive.
