The Vertex 4 is just over a year old but thanks to its recent firmware update (1.5), it still manages to perform almost on a par with the best drives currently available. One of the striking aspects of the Vertex is its well-rounded performance profile. With an AS-SSD score of 1137 and a real world speed of 548 the Vertex 4 is able to cope extremely well with both server and consumer type workloads. This drive uses the new Indilux Everest 2 controller, which unlike the previous generations of this drive which used a SandForce controller, is able to cope admirably with both compressible and incompressible data. Overall, the Vertex 4 is a great performing SSD that said, there are better value for money (and younger) drives available, including the Vertex 4's own successor, the OCZ Vector[Jun '13 SSDrivePro]

The RevoDrive 3 X2 has an unbalanced performance profile that won't suit the majority of desktop users. Despite demonstrating a record breaking sequential read speed the RevoDrive shows relative weakness in all the other speed categories. Its Sandforce controller handles compressible data magnificently but fails miserably on incompressible data which is why the AS SSD benchmark figures are less than half the official performance figures stated by OCZ. The RevoDrive is a PCIE based drive so has higher potential bandwidth than SATA 3 drives but with the exception of Sequential Read, the RevoDrive doesn't make use of the additional bandwidth. There are far better deals available elsewhere. [Nov '12 SSDrivePro]
