OCZ RevoDrive Vs OCZ IBIS benchmark Tests (Review)

xbitlabs tested the OCZ RevoDrive and OCZ IBIS benchmark  SSDs with PCI –Express interface . This type of devices is free from a common bottleneck – insufficiently fast SATA interface, so this is where we should be looking for a performance leader:

The considerable reduction in flash memory prices has helped solid state drives reach the mass market and disrupted the long-established trends and traditions of top-performance storage systems. There used to be but one way to achieve high disk subsystem performance which involved building RAID arrays out of 15,000RPM hard disk drives. The more HDDs you had, the higher the resulting performance of the RAID. Thus, a high-performance disk subsystem would always be large and hot.

Then came multichannel solid state drives. Flash memory endowed them with a fantastic read response time while the multichannel design ensured high sequential speeds. They even boasted high write speed thanks to the introduction of a spare pool of memory blocks always ready for writing and to their efficient algorithms of wiping unused cells that worked together with the TRIM command. Most importantly for server applications, you could have all this in a single and rather compact device with very low power consumption.
