OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 PCI-E Solid State Drive
Featured Reviews: Storage

Solid State Drive storage began as a technology best suited for durable computer devices, then slowly evolved into the notebook and desktop space with affordable high-speed SATA-based SSD solutions. Once SSDs became mainstream for power users, the demand for high-performance workstations and servers soon followed. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the OCZ RevoDrive 3 X2 PCI-E workstation-class solid state drive against several enthusiast options. Available in 240-960GB capacities, the model RVD3X2-FHPX4-480G PCI-Express workstation-class SSD uses OCZ's SuperScale storage controller to produce up to 230,000 IOPS with transfers up to 1500 MB/s.

OCZ Virtualized Controller Architecture 2.0
Featured Reviews: Storage

Not long ago Benchmark Reviews tested the OCZ RevoDrive and OCZ RevoDrive X2 PCI-Express solid state drive storage devices, both of which are based on SandForce SF-1200 SSD controllers and Silicon Image SiI3124 RAID chip. When SandForce launched their second-generation chip, featured in the OCZ RevoDrive3 X2, the four integrated SandForce SF-2200 SSD controllers used an undocumented OCZ SuperScale Storage Controller. In this article, Benchmark Reviews presents an OCZ Virtualized Controller Architecture 2.0 overview. Using information provided by OCZ, we offer a deeper understanding of OCZ VCA 2.0 technology and the SuperScale controller.

Patriot Wildfire SF-2281 Solid State Drive
Featured Reviews: Storage

Patriot Memory has been a long-time provider of system components for performance enthusiasts. It was a natural evolution for them to focus their efforts on SSDs to compliment the demand for high-end RAM. They were sucessful with their Inferno series, and now that SandForce has released their second-generation controller they're back with the Patriot Wildfire. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests performance on the 120GB Patriot Wildfire Solid State Drive, model PW120GS25SSDR, specified for up to 555 MB/s read and 520 MB/s write performance with 4K random write speeds as high as 80,000 IOPS in real world testing.

ADATA S511 Solid State Drive AS511S3
Featured Reviews: Storage

ADATA knows that SandForce-driven SSDs are a win-win combination of performance and speed. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the ADATA S511 solid state drive. Based on the popular new SandForce SF-2281 SATA 6Gb/s controller and fast IMFT-branded NAND flash components, ADATA claims the AS511S3 is capable of 550 MB/s read and 510 MB/s write speed with 4K random write speeds as high as 60,000 IOPS in real world testing. We test these claims, and compare performance to competing storage solid-state solutions in this review to find out which SSD is best.

OCZ Agility 3 SSD AGT3-25SAT3
Featured Reviews: Storage

It might not seem like SSDs have been around very long, but OCZ has been a pioneer in the technology for almost four years already. They've traditionally offered several different options for performance enthusiasts, from economic yet responsive storage to premium high-speed enthusiast solid state drive solutions. While their Vertex series deliver the fastest SSD's available, the more affordable Agility family accommodates cost-conscious builders and comes available in 60-240GB capacities. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the OCZ Agility 3 SSD, model AGT3-25SAT3, which is based on the SandForce SF-2281 SATA 6Gb/s controller and IMFT-branded async-NAND flash components.

OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS Edition SSD
Featured Reviews: Storage

Not so long ago, Benchmark Reviews tested the OCZ Vertex 3 SSD, which delivered the best transfer speeds and operational performance we had seen from any SATA-connected drive. Not to be outdone, the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS Edition solid state drive debuts with the same SandForce SF-2281 controller but switches to Toshiba TH58TAG7D2FBAS9 3nnm toggle NAND flash components. OCZ suggests up to 120,000 combined IOPS are possible, with speeds reading 550 MB/s. In this article, Benchmark Reviews compares the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS Edition SSD to other high-speed SATA 6Gb/s storage devices.

Patriot Torqx 2 Phison Solid State Drive
Featured Reviews: Storage

Phison SSDs aren't as well-known to computer hardware enthusiasts as those controllers from SandForce or Indilinx. For many within the industry, SandForce dominated the 2010 market in much the same way that Indilinx did throughout 2009. But not everyone can afford the premium brand names, or desire the fastest solid state drive technology. Building on the name of their budget Torqx TRB product line that came in 32/64GB capacities, Patriot Memory issues the Torqx 2 series for high-performance power users with capacity up to 256GB. The Patriot Torqx 2 SSD is specified to offer 270 MB/s reads over the SATA 3Gb/s interface, with write speed reaching 230 MB/s. In this article, Benchmark Reviews confirms these results by testing the Patriot Torqx 2 on a B3-stepping Sandy Bridge platform with plenty of bandwidth headroom.
