OCZ RevoDrive X2 240GB PCIE SSD Review

RevoDrive X2 – Test System

TEST SYSTEM

All tests were performed on a fresh and up-to-date install of Windows
7 Pro x64 with no
other applications running and using AHCI mode set through the BIOS. Synthetic Benchmarks were run with the OS loaded on a 30GB Vertex SSD. The
ASUS P6T (BIOS v1701) motherboard uses an ICH10R south bridge chipset which supports
TRIM. In between every test, the drive was secure erased. As such, all results should be
indicative of optimal performance. All
components were set to their default speeds and are listed below:

Comparison Drives & Other Models We Have Tested

Since there are so many SSDs out there now with different
controllers, we started a reference table of which
controllers are used by each drive to help you compare results.
Different controllers definitely perform differently and each has various strengths and weaknesses. Like CPU’s, even identical drives will have variations in performance and part of that variance may be attributable to the NAND flash used.

As with the original RevoDrive, we cannot show the screenshot of the CrystalDiskMark Info tool as we normally do at this point in the review as CDM Info simply does not recognize it. Nor does it (again) show in the Intel Rapid Storage Technology application.

RevoDrive X2- LED

So with that, we’ll move on to the benchmarks!
