Apricorn Velocity Solo x2 overview

  • 1Description

The Velocity Solo x2 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)¹ via a super fast SATA III connection to your desktop PC or Mac Pro. 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 a Marvel 9182 controller chip, the Velocity Solo x2 is bootable in both PC and Mac systems. It uses a single PCIe 2.0 x2 and larger² slot delivering read and write speeds of up to 550³ MBps when used with one SSD (up to 800 MBps speeds when configured with two drives). The Velocity Solo is backwards compatible with PCIe 1.0 slot and also 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 x2 also provides an additional auxiliary SATA III data connection port that can be used to connect 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 Mac Pro.

Note:
1: Solid State Drive (SDD) sold separately.
2: x2 slots are uncommon in most desktop systems. Typical installation will use an x4 slot or larger.
3: 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, the Velocity Solo also serves as 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 gives a smoother playing experience. Games are also faster to load and save when using an SSD.
Easy Installation
The Velocity Solo x2 enables you to connect 2.5" SSD via SATA III interface (6 Gbps). It uses a single PCIe 2.0 x2 or larger slot delivering data transfer speeds up to 550 MBps when used with one SSD (up to 800 MBps speeds when configured with two drives). Simply connect your solid state drive to the Velocity Solo SATA III connector and slide into an available PCIe 2.0 x2 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 super fast connection to an additional hard drive or solid state drive. The Velocity Solo is backwards compatible with PCIe 1.0 slot as well as 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 x2 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 x2 is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7 and Mac OS x 10.4 or later version.
