OCZ Revodrive 3 x2 MAX IOPS question
Hello everyone! Another quick question! What is the maximum bandwidth I can achieve by putting an OCZ Revodrive 3 x2 MAX IOPS PCI-Express SSD on a PCI-Express slot? It will "only" give me like 5Gbps! Oh! Forgot to mention! Motherboard is ASUS Rampage IV Extreme! Thank you all in advance! Greetings from Greece!
Your motherboard has 6 PCIe slots. Assuming that your graphics card is connected to Slot 1, your RevoDrive should be connected to any of the remaining slots except Slot 5. Slot 5 is PCIe 2.0 x1, so if your RevoDrive is connected there then that would explain your problem.
See page 2-16 of your motherboard manual for the location of PCIe Slot 5.
If your RevoDrive is not connected to Slot 5 then you should contact Customer Support at OCZ and see if they can help you.
The maximum bandwidth on Slot 5 is 5Gb/s. If your card is not connected to Slot 5 then something is wrong with your SSD.
Advertised Read/Write speeds for the RevoDrive are with ATTO benchmark software.
Test the drive with ATTO to verify if you are only getting 5Gb/s (500MB/s). If your speeds are not greater than that then contact OCZ for help.
