At this years Computex conference this week OCZ has been showing off their latest storage technology for us to drawl over. With the RevoDrive 3 PCIe SSD card they have set the benchmark for consumer oriented Uber storage solutions. Like greased lightning for your computers insides, this is the newest gadget that every noid computer builder wants. It’s not as glamorous as and new 3D transistor CPU from Intel or the latest Über video card but PCIe storage makes up for it with exclusivity. This is leading edge technology that few people have.
Just like a standard SSD – Solid State Drive – the RevoDrive 3 replaces the hard drive in your system instantly converting your old beige box into a sleek performance machine. This card is fully bootable allowing it to be plugged into any motherboard and used as your systems boot drive, not all PCIe SSD’s are capable of this. What makes the RevoDrive different from hard drives and typical SSD’s is the way it connects to your computer. In the Revo’s case it uses a PCIe slot – Peripheral Component Interconnect Express, motherboard slots -, instead of the slower SATA interface . By connecting directly to your computers motherboard the RevoDrive is able to achieve speeds much higher than the old SATA hard drive interface.
