OCZ RevoDrive 350 Review

The world of solid-state drives has reached a state of limbo. We’re pretty much at the limit of current SATA technology, and SATA Express will be more of an evolution than a revolution. If you really need some extra horsepower, where do you turn? The new M.2 slot promises up to 40 percent faster speeds than SATA, but we haven’t seen anywhere near that yet. They’re on the right track though, since the PCI Express bus they use has a lot of spare bandwidth, if it’s not fully occupied with a video card. OCZ has known this for some time, as its new RevoDrive 350 is the latest entry to a long-running line of PCIe-based SSDs. OCZ’s new drive offers speeds of up to 1,800MB/s, which is three to four times faster than a SATA-based SSD.
