We have yet another competition up for grabs today for 3 lucky people. OCZ have donated a spanking brand new 120GB RevoDrive 3, still sealed in the box.
OCZ RevoDrive 3 PCI-Express SSD 120GB
PCI-E Solid State Drive / Workstation-Class / 130,000 IOPS / 120GB-480GB
Designed with power users and multimedia designers in mind, the RevoDrive 3 SSD Series provides the ultimate storage solution for intensive workstation applications with maximum performance and a sophisticated feature-set based on OCZ’s proprietary Virtualized Controller Architecture 2.0 (VCA) technology.
The RevoDrive 3 provides unique benefits to users by incorporating features from the VCA 2.0 flash virtualization software that allow certain direct memory access (DMA) and data management functions. Included in this feature-set are OCZ’s exclusive command queuing and queue balancing algorithms, which can be handled by the onboard processing core for higher performance and reduced burden on the host resources. VCA 2.0 is also the only virtualization layer in the industry with TRIM and SCSI unmap support to enhance sustained performance and provide greater endurance by significantly reducing the overhead associated with garbage collection. Furthermore, VCA also offers consolidated SMART support and provides system administrators with advanced features for monitoring, analyzing, and reporting device attributes.
With an all-new architecture, the RevoDrive 3 shatters its predecessor’s performance record and is faster than comparable solutions ten times the price. The dual-controller Revo3 delivers up to 1GB/s of bandwidth and up to 130,000 IOPS (4K random write) under HPC or workstation workloads with a single-card solution. Additionally, the Revo3 offers ample capacity for users in media development and management looking for more storage room.
Available in 120GB, 240GB and 480GB capacities, the OCZ RevoDrive 3 provides incredible performance for data warehousing, applications, multimedia files, and operating systems with the superior durability, energy efficiency, and reliability of SSDs.
