The Apricorn Velocity Duo x2 provides two SATA III interfaces for your Windows or Mac desktop computer. It connects to your motherboard via a PCIe 2.0 x2 slot to support up to two optional 2.5" storage drives, which offer extra storage space for your computer. In addition, this card supports SSDs that enable the computer to boot up faster as well as access and save data quicker when compared to standard hard drives. When the drives are software configured for RAID 0, they can transfer data to your system up to 800 MB/s. Included with the card is a downloadable Apricorn EZ Gig Cloning Windows software program with Data Select that copies the contents from one drive to another. This program along with a Marvell 9230 chipset lets you utilize the storage drive connected to the card as a bootable drive.
Simply snap your storage drive to the Velocity Duo's SATA connectors, secure them with the provided mounting screws, then slide the card into any available PCIe slot (x2 or larger.) Once installed, transfer your OS and applications from your desktop drive to your newer storage drive using Apricorn's EZ Gig cloning software for PC systems, or for the Mac Pro, use Apple's built-in Disk Utility.
Running your OS and applications on an SSD provides an increase in performance when compared to typical hard drives.
Improve Game Performance
As games become too large for their assets to be fully cached on modern graphics cards and main memory, the addition of two SSDs brings faster disk access during game-play and eliminates in-game pauses for a smoother playing experience. Games are also faster to load and save with two SSDs.
Mac Pro Compatibility
The Velocity Duo x2 will function in Mac Pro models with an available PCI slot, but will only boot in EFI64 machines which are identified as Mac Pro 3.1, 4.1, and 5.1. Mac Pro models that are EFI32 cannot boot directly from the Velocity Duo x2. However, they will recognize the Velocity Duo x2 as a storage device.
