Apricorn Velocity Solo x1 overview

  • 1Description

The Velocity Solo x1 SSD Upgrade Kit for Desktop PCs & Mac Pro from Apricorn is an industry standard PCIe 2.0 card designed to add a 2.5" Solid State Drive (SSD) to your desktop PC or Mac Pro via a super fast SATA III connection. With data transfer rates of 6 Gbps, SATA III is twice as fast as SATA II and takes full advantage of the latest SSD. Using an Asmedia 1061 controller chip, the Velocity Solo x1 is bootable in both PC and Mac systems. It uses a single PCIe 2.0 x1 slot delivering read and write speeds of up to 400* MBps when used with one SSD. Moreover, the Velocity Solo is backwards compatible with a PCIe 1.0 slot and supports SATA II and SATA I SSDs. It is TRIM compatible and if the operating system supports TRIM, it can access drive capacities in excess of 2.2 TB.

The Velocity Solo x1 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. It is ideal for use as a boot disk or scratch disk and useful for high resolution image editing, video editing and gaming. The Velocity Solo is easy to install, especially since it is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7 and Mac Pro. Once installed, it transfers your OS and applications from your desktop hard drive to your new SSD using Apricorn's EZ Gig cloning software with Data Select for PC systems, or Apple's built-in Disk Utility for the Mac Pro.

Note: *Actual data speeds are dependent on individual system and SSD performance.

Ideal for High Performance
Running your OS and applications on an SSD provides a measureable performance increase. However, 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, adding an SSD for faster disk access during game play results in less in-game pauses and gives a smoother playing experience. Games can also be loaded and saved quickly when using an SSD.
Easy Installation
The Velocity Solo x1 enables you to connect 2.5" SSD via SATA III interface (6 Gbps). It uses a single PCIe 2.0 x1 slot delivering data transfer speeds up to 400* MBps when used with one SSD. Simply connect your SSD to the Velocity Solo SATA III connector and slide into an available PCIe 2.0 x1 slot in your desktop PC. Once installed, download and run Apricorn's EZ Gig cloning software and your upgrade is complete. For additional capacity, use the auxiliary SATA III connector for a superfast connection to an additional hard drive or solid state drive. Moreover, the Velocity Solo is backwards compatible with a PCIe 1.0 slot and also with SATA II and SATA I SSDs.
Apricorn's EZ Gig Cloning Software with Data Select / Apple's Disk Utility
The Velocity Solo is bundled with Apricorn's EZ Gig Cloning software or Windows with Data Select. Data Select provides a simple method to deselect data folders from the cloning process which is useful when migrating from a large HDD to a smaller SSD and perfect for creating a boot disk. This gives you the option to run your OS and applications from a fast, smaller SSD boot drive, while keeping your documents and media files on your original hard drive. For Mac Pro, use Apple's built-in Disk Utility.
Compatible with TRIM Command
The Velocity Solo x1 is TRIM compatible and if the operating system supports TRIM, it can access drive capacities in excess of 2.2 TB.
Target Applications:
Boot disk
Scratch disks for design applications
High resolution image editing and manipulation
Photo editing and retouching
Video editing and post-processing
Gaming
Windows and Mac Compatible
The Velocity Solo x1 is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7 and Mac OS X 10.4 or later version.

    Apricorn Velocity Solo x1 reviews

    Velocity Solo x1 SSD Upgrade Kit for Desktop PCs & Mac Pro is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good option for SSD of your choice I'm told that the double version of this card gives you greater speed, but this version gives me close to 400mbps Read/Write and I'm happy with that, since my regular hard drive is well under 70mbps. There is a formatting trick I learned the hard way if you happen to own a Mac Pro 2009 (and this is not documented anywhere to my knowledge) and that is that you need to boot the Mac in safe mode in order to format your chosen SSD. For some reason the disk formatting will fail otherwise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I installed this Apricorn Velocity Solo x1 card in a HP Compaq 6005 PRO desktop computer. The installation of the SSD was simple and fast and same goes for the installation of the card in the computer. The benchmark showed speeds slightly faster than the ad and manufacturer specifications claimed. Thumbs up on that. The card has one extra SATA 3 port, after the benchmark I installed a 7200rpm 3TB HDD through that secondary port. The benchmark done on that HDD was not disappointing, Read and write speeds came in around 150MB/s. I benchmarked the SSD after the installation and benchmarking of the HDD and saw the same numbers as I did at the first benchmark so using a second drive had no impact on the SSD performance. I am very pleased with this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Set this up with a SanDisk 480GB SSD. It runs 200MB/sec. plus. Great bandwidth for 4K/UHD video and Davinci Resolve. I'll be buying another SSD for the second port.
