Designed to Enhance and Transform the Apple Mac Pro 2006-2012 and PCs
By utilizing the fastest data interface available in a Mac Pro or PC - the PCIe slot - the Accelsior_E2 offers nearly 3x the performance vs. an SSD in a SATA 2.0 3Gb/s drive bay with well beyond even 6Gb/s speeds of up to 820MB/s. Fully bootable in both a Mac or a PC, the Accelsior removes bottlenecks and unleashes the incredible performance that is already there at the ready. Users can boot faster, launch faster and enjoy an instant boost in performance with I/O-intensive apps like Photoshop, Final Cut Pro or
A More Efficient, More Reliable Computing Experience
The massive boost in data transfer rates is only one of the benefits with the Accelsior_E2. With its custom LSI SandForce Driven OWC Mercury SSD blades, the Accelsior_E2 card enables Mac and PC users to enjoy a more responsive, more productive computing experience along with cooler, quieter and more energy efficient operation, compared to standard hard drives. These benefits don't come at the expense of dependable use as SandForce RAISE technology provides RAID-like data redundancy protection and reliability.
Even at the Accelsior's original price point, reviewers described it as:
'...a very high level of performance ... outstanding.'-
'Accelsior's performance is among the best SSDs we've seen...'-
'...incredibly ... very versatile ...may be one of the best performance and storage upgrade options for Mac Pro owners.'-
Upgrade as Capacity Needs Grow
With OWC factory configurations from 120GB (2 x 60GB) up to 960GB (2 x 480GB), the built-in eSATA 6Gb/s expansion ports and the ability to upgrade to larger Mercury Accelsior SSD blades in the future, the Mercury Accelsior_E2 is future-ready for growing capacity needs.
User-Friendly, Professionally Robust
As easy to install as a memory module, yet robust enough to handle the rigors of professional multimedia production environments, the half-height Accelsior_E2 card is the clear choice for pro audio and video studios producing HD-quality work. This game-changing, high-performance upgrade is designed and built in the U.S. from domestic and imported parts and backed by a three-year warranty.
The Mercury Accelsior_E2 PCIe SSD card is available for immediate ordering in the following dual Mercury Accelsior blade SSD capacity configurations:
120GB (2 x 64GB for 128GB total flash) previously
240GB (2 x 128GB for 256GB total flash) previously
480GB (2 x 256GB for 512GB total flash) previously
960GB (2 x 512GB for 1.0TB total flash) previously
The final capacity figures represent each drive's useable capacity after the 7 percent over-provisioning allocation for wear-leveling and drive management. OWC Mercury brand SSDs use over-provisioning to ensure high reliability over the life of the drive in addition to providing exceptional drive longevity and consistent, high data performance with I/O stability. Without the over-provisioning and other technologies built into OWC SSDs, other brand SSDs lose consistency and/or performance over time and/or as unused space on the drive declines.
