We're heartened to see the diverse range of PCIe SSDs on offer at CES this year, and OCZ has one of its own in the works. The M.2 RevoDrive 400 ticks all of the boxes we want to see in high-end PCIe flash storage. We get NVMe support, four lanes of PCIe 3.0 connectivity, and an optional adapter card for systems without an M.2 slot handy.
OCZ told us that the RevoDrive 400 has benched as fast as 2600 MB/s for sequential reads and 1600 MB/s for writes. The drive's claimed random I/O performance is an equally impressive 210,000 IOPS for 4K reads and 140,000 IOPS for 4K writes. The drive uses Toshiba's next-generation 15-nm flash, and it'll be available in the first quarter of this year in capacities from 128GB to 1TB.
