New OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD — Perfect Match For The 2011 MacBook Pro?

See the first test results, which show that the new OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD delivers performance that until now required a dual SSD RAID-0 stripe (on the 2011 MacBook Pro with its 6 Gbps SATA III port).

Owners of the spiffy 2011 MacBook Pro (see my 24-page review) will find that this level of performance allows the 4-core CPU to spend the least amount of time possible waiting for disk I/O.

For my travel, the 240GB capacity is ample, so that’s what I’ll be stuffing into my MacBook Pro. Even the 120GB capacity is a good choice for many users, and the OWC Data Doubler or MPG Pro Laptop allow dual internal drives for even higher internal capacity.

A maxed-out system for the demanding user:

* the 2nd internal MacBook Pro SATA port is 3 Gbps SATA II, but the OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G should still perform at a higher level than the previous generation SSDs, due to its faster controller.
