OCZ readies RevoDrive 400: M.2 SSD with NVMe support

OCZ Storage Solutions, a supplier of solid-state drives controlled by Toshiba Corp., is working on a new high-end SSD for performance enthusiasts. The new RevoDrive 400 uses M.2 form-factor, but fully supports NVMe protocol and has very high performance. The product will compete against workstation-class PCI Express-based SSDs from companies like Intel.

The OCZ RevoDrive 400 will be based on Toshiba’s multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash memory made using 15nm fabrication process, reports TechReport. It is unknown which controller does the RevoDrive 400 use, but it is claimed that the new SSD uses a controller from Toshiba, not OCZ’s own JetStream Express ASIC [application-specific integrated circuit].

The new enthusiast-class RevoDrive 400 from OCZ will use M.2 form-factor with PCI Express 3.0 x4 interface with 4GB/s peak bandwidth. Actual read speeds of the SSDs are expected to be as high as 2000MB/s and write speeds around 1600MB/s – 2000MB/s.

The OCZ RevoDrive 400 solid-state drive was demonstrated last week at the Intel Developer Forum is expected to hit the market later this year and will be the company’s flagship offering for performance enthusiasts.

KitGuru Says: It is surprising that OCZ decided to use a controller from Toshiba, but not its own Jetstream Express chip, which has been in development for several years. Perhaps, Toshiba wants to re-use as much of its own IP as possible in OCZ drives in a bid to maximize profitability and ensure quality and performance.

  1. If it’s 1tb capacity I am sold!
    Been using Samsung XP941 since it launched and absolutely love M.2, Had revodrive 3 x2 before that but the pci-e card is annoying, blocking airflow on multi gpu setup and the boot times were horrendous as slow as a normal hdd.
    If this new revo is as fast in boot times as this Samsung M.2 while being faster on read and writes and offering more than 512gb, I will buy it day 1 of release.

  3. Interesting, but I currently have my sights on the Intel Optane SSD’s…

  4. `KitGuru Says: It is surprising that OCZ decided to use a controller from Toshiba,`
    but from kitguru review of the 350 revodrive `OCZ Storage Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Toshiba Corp.`
    so not so much of a surprise then is it?
