As noted in our original RevoDrive review, the card had a section that looked like an additional card could be attached. Mounting holes on the PCB further backed this idea. Sure enough, just before our review went live, OCZ announced the RevoDrive X2 utilizing this very connector.
The RevoDrive X2 is essentially an original RevoDrive with a daughter card piggybacked on top. This daughter card adds two additional SandForce controllers and room for more memory chips, bringing the total controller count to four. A RAID0 configuration manages the four controllers and memory chips, resulting in what OCZ proclaims is a blazing fast PCIe SSD solution.
We were pretty impressed with the original RevoDrive and can only wonder if the follow-up product is equally as impressive.
The RevoDrive X2 arrived in the black retail box shown above which is nearly identical in design to the original RevoDrive’s box. The front of the package is pretty plain with just the product name and a few features listed. On the reverse is a photo of the RevoDrive X2 along with a more detailed explanation and a specifications sticker. Below is a list of features borrowed from OCZ's website.
Let's continue on and take a closer look at the successor to the original RevoDrive.
