OCZ RevoDrive 350 480GB Review (Page 1 of 10) | APH Networks

Ask any automotive enthusiast what is the most ridiculous road legal sports car ever created, do not be surprised to hear the name “Bugatti Veyron” more than a handful of times as an answer. When the Volkswagen Auto Group launched the car back in 2005, it simply redefined the entire hypercar category; bar none. Equipped with an 8.0L W16 quad turbocharged engine that delivers 987 hp at the crank, the Bugatti Veyron can reach 100 km/h from a dead stop in just 2.46 seconds. Flat out, it can do an astounding 408.47 km/h. At this point, it is important to point out while the Veyron can accelerate with neck breaking forces and capable of traveling faster than an average airplane’s V1 speed, it does not mean you can get from New York to Los Angeles in less than eleven hours. At its top speed, the tires will wear out in fifteen minutes, but there is nothing to worry about, because you will run out of fuel in just twelve. Is this a classic case of engineering pushing the envelope so hard, it essentially outdesigned itself, instituting limitations of its own? The OCZ RevoDrive 350 480GB we are reviewing today shares a similar story. It specifies a whopping 1800MB/s sequential read, 1700MB/s sequential write, and up to 140,000 IOPS according to the manufacturer. In fact, it is so fast, it needs to be connected to your motherboard’s PCI Express x8 slot directly, because SATA is simply too slow for this beast. Do we have the Bugatti Veyron of SSDs in our hands today? We took in this $800 hyper-solid-state-disk to find out.
