Boost. Expand. Maximize.
The Accelsior 1M2 is a Plug and Play PCIe x4 NVMe SSD storage solution that lets you boost the speed and expand the storage/backup capacity of your Mac Pro 2019, Mac Pro 2012 and 2010, or PC tower. By adding a new world of performance-maximizing capabilities to your machine, you can enjoy:
- Near instant start-up and business critical app launching
- Real-time processing of intensive transfer tasks like multi-stream video editing
- Shorter render, capture, and process times in video suites like Adobe Premier, Final Cut Pro/Pro X, DaVinci Resolve, and Avid Pro Tools
- Quicker production capabilities in photo and audio platforms like Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, and Apple Logic Pro X
- Faster game level-loading, responsiveness, and save times
- More years of productive use from your machine
When your upgrade goal is to make your machine as fast as possible with maximum reliability and cost effectiveness, the Accelsior 1M2 is the answer. It utilizes an open PCIe slot in your Mac Pro or PC to deliver the thrilling speed advantage of a NVMe PCIe SSD. It’s Plug and Play ready to put you in the fast lane of pure uncompromised storage performance.
At the heart of Accelsior 1M2’s mind-blowing power is an OWC Aura SSD that’s been engineered with fail-safes to increase longevity and preserve best consistent performance, especially in write-intensive workflows. From running double checks on data and correcting errors to ensuring the uniform use of its flash media, the Aura-based Accelsior 1M2 is a stable, dependable, and ultimately safer place to store your data.
Keep Your Cool Silently
When deadlines and workload pressures start to mount, the Accelsior 1M2 helps you keep your cool. An industrial quality black aluminum alloy heat sink with deeply grooved fins silently keeps the Accelsior 1M2 performing at its best so you can remain chill focused.
The Performance Advantage of NVMe
Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) is a communication standard specifically built to optimize the performance of modern flash technology. It enables the Accelsior 1M2 to deliver significantly faster SSD performance vs an SSD using the SATA interface, a communication protocol that was originally designed for hard disk drives.
Perfect Inside or Out
By supporting PCIe 4.0 and earlier motherboards and able to plug into x4/x8/x16 PCIe slots, the Accelsior 1M2 is a perfect performance drive upgrade for a wide variety of full-sized and small form factor computers.
If your Mac/PC doesn’t have an open or compatible PCIe slot but is Thunderbolt 3 compatible, the Accelsior 1M2 can be used externally in a PCIe Expansion chassis like the OWC Mercury Helios 3S.
Test-Certified for Mac Pro 2019
Time is money and you can’t risk depending on a cheap, no-name device that claims to work trouble-free. Before every Accelsior 1M2 ships, it undergoes a undergoes a multi-step performance certification to ensure it arrives ready for demanding use with the Mac Pro 2019 as well as Mac Pro 2012/2010 machines and PC towers. With OWC, there’s no costly downtime or stressful frustration…just the rewarding satisfaction of professional-grade quality.
Data transfer rate performance will vary based on OWC Aura SSD used, CPU capabilities, and PCIe generation slot used. Performance in a Thunderbolt 3 PCIe expansion chassis limited by maximum Thunderbolt 3 PCIe bandwidth of 2,800MB/s.
