OCZ RevoDrive X2 240GB PCIe SSD Review

Steam / StarCraft II Maintenance


For a large number of gamers the main way to obtain content is via digital distribution and the two main platforms for this are Valve's Steam and Blizzards Battle.net. Of course when we purchase games online reinstallation at any point can take a while with some games being over 20GB in size. So to save consumers from lengthy downloads both Valve and Blizzard allow us to validate and repair our game files, scanning them for problems and replacing any broken content.

Scanning games can be a time consuming task though so a fast storage device can have us up and running again more quickly. To show the impact each drive has on this task we have taken StarCraft 2 (Battle.net) and Fallout New Vegas (Steam) and run their validation tools. This means a scan of 15GB and one of nearly 9GB.

This test follows a similar trend to the others in the review with our RevoDrive X2 significantly outperforming the other drives. In every task we throw at it performance is exceptional.
