OWC Thunderblade Thunderbolt 3 SSD

Blazing fast, up to 16TB.

YEE HAH!



√ No more slow and noisy hard drives!

MPG Pro Workstation Solution with OWC PCIe SSD

OWC PCIe-based SSD for Mac Pro

Are you a high-end user looking for ultimate performance with ample storage?

Iif you need a solution now, why wait?

Apple might release a new Mac Pro in late March/April, or maybe it will be August. Or maybe. something else. See Buy Mac Pro Now, or Wait?.

New options for SSD

Sometime soon I will be testing the OWC PCIe SSD card, which will open up even more options for Mac Pro users for ultra-high performance internal storage in a PCIe slot. Or more than one PCIe slot. Very exciting stuff.

I am hearing that there will be versions with 2 daughtercards or 4 daughtercards, and I believe the 2-card version will be bootable.

I like the self-contained PCIe card idea; no SATA cables or power supplies or RAID cards with noisy fans to deal with. The self-contained card hits a terrific sweet spot; even with 2 daughtercards, that’s 960GB, which is plenty of space for a very large and ultra-fast working volume; any overflow of image files or video can be migrated as they age out of the workflow onto high capacity hard drives.

Of course, nothing precludes installing more than one PCIe SSD card other than having available slots.

Finally, no iMac takes PCIe cards— another reason a Mac Pro is a far better investment for professionals.

MPG Pro Workstation

Here’s the ultimate MPG Pro Workstation to build once the OWC PCIe SSD card becomes available—

Assuming OWC loans me the parts, I’ll build up of these puppies using my existing 12-core 3.33 GHz Mac Pro.
