Specifications and Package

Below are the key features and specifications of the OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid 240GB:

Innovative Drive Combines Incredible SSD Performance and HDD Capacity
RevoDrive Hybrid PCI Express (PCIe) storage solution is designed to dramatically accelerate applications and system responsiveness by providing the best of both worlds, a superior combination of SSD and hard disk drive (HDD) technology for high-performance yet economical storage.

Highest Performing Hybrid Drive on the Market
Eliminating the SATA bottleneck, the PCIe-based RevoDrive Hybrid unleashes ground-breaking bandwidth up to 910MB/s and features up to 120,000 IOPS (4K random write) for high transactional workloads to truly provide SSD-like performance.

Intelligent Caching Software
For optimal caching, the Revo Hybrid comes bundled with intelligent caching software that dynamically manages the use of the entire drive capacity for superior overall storage performance, where the most frequently/recently used “hot” data is cached for ultra-fast access, while the “cold” data remains on the primary storage partition. Advanced caching algorithms learn user behavior and adapt storage policies to ensure exceptional performance for each individual user, maximizing productivity for the most demanded programs and applications.

Features VCA 2.0 with SuperScale
VCA 2.0 flash virtualization software allows certain direct memory access (DMA) and data management functions. Included in this feature-set are OCZ’s exclusive command queuing and queue balancing algorithms, which can be handled by the onboard processing core for higher performance and reduced burden on the host resources. VCA 2.0 is also the only virtualization layer in the industry with TRIM and SCSI unmap support to enhance sustained performance and provide greater endurance by significantly reducing the overhead associated with garbage collection. Furthermore, VCA also offers consolidated SMART support and provides system administrators with advanced features for monitoring, analyzing, and reporting device attributes

The box of the RevoDrive Hybrid is rather sleek in a white and blue finish, with a large photo of the drive on the front. The rear of the box has a bit more information about the basic features of the drive, along with another smaller image, and a few specifications such as capacity, speed, and such.

Opening the box reveals another box, like some little Russian egg toy. This one is black.

Inside this inner box lies, well, virtually nothing. It’s a whole lot of anticipation for simply a User’s Guide, as far as accessories go.

The real excitement must be the drive itself, so let’s take a look.
