OWC / Other World Computing OWCSSDA116G960 overview

  • 1Description

Add 1TB of SSD storage to your 2010 or 2011 MacBook Air with the 1TB Aura 6G mSATA SSD from OWC / Other World Computing. The drive is compatible with 11" and 13" MacBook Airs released in July 2011 (MacBookAir4,2 and 4,1) and October 2010 (MacBookAir3,2 and 3,1).

This SSD connects to your MacBook Air using an mSATA connection and features no moving parts, helping to protect it from accidental bumps and drops, as well as achieve faster data transfer speeds. In terms of speed, the drive sports a Silicon Motion SM2246EN controller that delivers sustained reads of up to 560 MB/s, sustained writes of up to 460 MB/s, random 4K reads of up to 74,000 IOPS, and random 4K writes of up to 73,000 IOPS.

The Aura 6G comes equipped with Intelligent Block Management and Wear Leveling technology that automatically distributes data evenly across the entire SSD to increase its lifespan. To enhance data integrity, it utilizes StaticDataRefresh technology for managing free space and gradually refreshing data across the SSD. Furthermore, AES 256-bit support protects your data.

Aura SSD Features

DuraWrite extends the endurance of your Solid-State Drive (SSD)
Intelligent block management & wear leveling automatically distributes data evenly across the entire SSD
Intelligent read disturb management spreads the active read/write across the flash components eliminating data corruption caused by constant use
Intelligent recycling for advanced free space management gradually re-writes data across the SSD over time to ensure data never gets corrupted
RAISE (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) protects the data on your drive similar to having a RAID setup
ECC protection for long data retention and drive life
