Yes, the OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid is faster than the OCZ Agility 3.
The RevoDrive connects to a PCIe x4 slot on your motherboard. The Agility 3 connects to a SATA port.

A PCIe x4 slot has a higher data bandwidth than a SATA port (SATA 2 or SATA 3) so that's why the RevoDrive can have faster speeds than a normal SSD.

But the RevoDrive costs $320. The Agility 3 starts at $65.

For that amount of money I would get a 256GB OCZ Vertex 4 or a 256GB Samsung 830.
