The Velocity Solo SSD Upgrade Kit for Desktop PCs from Apricorn is an industry standard PCIe 2.0 card designed to add a 2.5" Solid State Drive (SSD) via a super fast SATA III connection. With data transfer rates of 6 Gb/s, SATA III is twice as fast as SATA II and takes full advantage of the latest SSD. The Velocity Solo uses a Marvell SATA 6G AHCI Raid controller, delivering a read speed of up to 400MB/s and a write speed of up to 220MB/s.
The Velocity Solo also provides an additional auxiliary SATA III data connection port that can be used to connect to another SSD or HDD to provide unparalleled capacity and performance. The Velocity Solo is easy to install, especially since it is compatible with Mac Pro 2009 and 2010 models.
- Ideal for High Performance
- Running your OS and applications on an SSD provides a measureable performance increase, but the Velocity Solo is also the perfect upgrade for improving gaming performance. As games become too large for their assets to be fully cached on modern graphics cards and main memory, the addition of an SSD for faster disk access during game play results in less in-game pauses and a smoother playing experience. Games are also faster to load and save when using an SSD
- Easy Installation
- Simply connect your Solid State Drive to the Velocity Solo SATA III connector and slide into an available PCIe slot in your Mac Pro. Once installed, use Apple's built-in Disk Utility to transfer your OS and applications to the new SSD. Once complete, simply update the Startup disk preferences, restart your system and your Mac Pro will start from your new SSD. For additional capacity use the auxiliary SATA III connector for a super fast connection to an additional hard drive or solid state drive
