Drive TypeSolid-State DriveThis defines whether the drive is a large-capacity slower hard disk drive, a smaller-capacity but much faster solid-state drive, or a hybrid
Capacity960GBThe drive storage capacity is the limit to the size of files that can be stored
Release Date01 Oct 2012 The later the release, the more likely manufacturer support will still be around
Power Required8WHDDs should generally require very little power to run, and SSDs even less
Read Speed1500MB/sThe read speed is how fast the drive can read from data stored on it
Write Speed1300MB/sThe write speed is how fast the drive can store data
IOPS230000The IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second) is a common benchmark used to measure drive performance
Drive InterfaceSATA 6Gb/sThe interface is the type of motherboard connection and defines the bandwidth limit of the drive

The OCZ Technology RVD3X2-FHPX4-960G 960GB is a solid-state drive, which means it stores data using flash memory similar to how USBs store data, but much more effectively. Solid-state drives perform much more effectively than hard disk drives, with faster read/write speeds, lower latencies, and even higher physical shock resistance, but come at a price premium. An SSD will cost much more than an HDD with an equivalent storage capacity - although SSDs are becoming cheaper and more viable over time. A common choice is to use a small SSD for an OS installation such as Windows for fast boot times and OS performance, and to use an HDD for applications and files. This avoids the negative point that over-use of data-writing can eventually lead to SSD degradation (although modern SSDs are said to take years before degradation), because Windows does not write much data, but its data is read often.

The OCZ Technology RVD3X2-FHPX4-960G 960GB is an extremely high-performance SSD and can perform at levels well beyond any HDD.

Its read speed of 1500MB/s is extremely fast, which should provide the quickest loading speeds within applications that are possible with consumer hardware. Its write speed of 1300MB/s is extremely fast, which should allow you to store data at lightning speeds.

With a capacity of 960GB, the OCZ Technology RVD3X2-FHPX4-960G 960GB has an extremely impressive amount of storage space for an SSD that rivals a decent-sized HDD. However big the drive, an SSD should always have enough unused memory to be able to rotate space and minimize the reuse of the same areas of the drive. Because each block of space has a limited lifespan, by spreading out the reuse of space it prolongs the lifespan of the SSD as a whole.

Using the SATA 3.0 6Gb/s interface this SSD will not be limited by its motherboard connection.
