For at least two years solid state drives have been an area of rapid growth. No other technology has increased user experience or productivity in the last ten years like what has become our 200 Dollar, 128GB SSD. For years we went through cycles of adding more RAM and faster processors while our 50 year old traditional HDD design gained a few megabytes per second of performance. The HDD let us down with slow growth and moderate performance gains. A revolving digital image of an hourglass became the symbol of the storage product market's failure.
To get past Intel's P67/Z68 chipset's 2 SATA III port limit, OCZ Technology had to get creative and deliver the RevoDrive 3. Two versions are available; the RevoDrive 3 which uses two SandForce SF-2281 controllers and the larger RevoDrive 3 X2 that packs four SandForce controllers. Unlike previous RevoDrive branded products, the PCIe to PCI-X to SATA bridges have been burned and replaced with a new, proprietary technology that OCZ calls Virtualized Controller Architecture 2.0.
