OCZ has been showing off its new RevoDrive 400 NVMe PCI Express SSD which is starting to show how far the technology has come in a few years.

The new RevoDrive 400 NVMe PCI Express SSD uses Toshiba's NVMe controller technology. OCZ conservatively gives it a speed of 2.4GB/sec for reads and 1.6GB/sec for writes. This makes the drive at the top of the pack when you look at recent entries like Samsung's 950 Pro or Intel's SSD 750.


IOPs are rated at 210K for reads and 140K for writes. The RevoDrive 400 is based on cutting-edge 15nm Toshiba MLC NAND technology and has a five year warranty. At CES OCZ had a demo system setup which was wowing the throngs.

In ATTO tests showed how conservative the official starts were. The RevoDrive 400 peaked at 2.69GB/sec for reads and 1.6GB/sec write spec for large sequential transfers. So this drive is looking rather cool.

RevoDrive 400 capacities are 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB. Still no word on price yet but it should be a lot cheaper than the more commercial SSDs out there.

We hope to have a review in the works of OCZ's new 15nm NVMe-based silicon soon.
