OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid PCI-E 100GB SSD/1TB HDD Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Hardware Canucks have reviewed the brand new OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid PCI-E 100GB SSD/1TB HDD, which as you might have guessed combines a solid state drive and hard drive on one PCB.
Let's see what they had to say:
"While the RevoDrive Hybrid is not what we would call an elegant solution it does net levels of performance that puts to shame the likes of the Seagates hybrid XT drive and even Intels Smart Response Technology. By boldly thinking outside the box - and pairing a RAID 0 SSD array with a single hard drive OCZ has been able to create what is the most impressive hybrid device we have seen to date. Unlike most hybrid setups, the software of the RevoDrive Hybrid is able to intelligently direct read as well as write commands to the NAND ICs and the hard drive. The result is benchmark numbers that nearly equal a RevoDrive 3 120GB while allowing for eight times the storage capacity."
This is a very interesting device for those who want both performance and capacity in a single storage device. It is pricey (~$500) but you couldn't expect a product like this one to be cheap.
