OCZ RevoDrive 3×2 PCIE SSD Released To Consumer With a Bit Extra
Just a bit of an update to pass on that retail versions of the OCZ Revo 3×2 (480/960GB) and Revo will be hitting store shelves very shortly followed by the Revo 3×2 240GB a few days later.
OCZ’s initial specs of the Revo 3×2 left enthusiasts in a daze as the 240GB initially promised was nowhere to be seen. The response was totally unexpected as we received countless e-mails, all looking for answers with questions preceded by “but…but…but”. Well, the Revo 3×2 240GB will be available, as originally promised, in just a few days.
As revealed in our review of the OCZ Revo 3×2 480GB SSD, there is something different on the all Revo 3×2′s as can be seen in the picture below. It seems that some may have noticed that OCZ’s Superscale Storage Accelerator got a bit warm in testing and OCZ followed suit to fix that right up with a heatsink as seen here:
We thought it only fair to test the difference between both so we through them in. Here is a picture that you won’t see often and we won’t see for long as OCZ failed to omit return shipping information when sending this drive. #$%^&%%$!!!
We carried on to a series of digitus secundus manus examinations and can happily state that the heat sink performs exactly as it should. There was one other bit of fine tuning on the Revo 3×2 by way of identification on the back plate which can be seen below.
