The highest capacity SSD (“flash drive”) that Apple sells for the 2013 Mac Pro is 1TB, and there is no upgrade option.
The OWC Aura SSD for Mac Pro addresses both issues with a nice kicker in being able to use the original Apple flash drive as well.
- User installable module in 1TB or 2TB capacity.
- Original SSD installs in the Mercury Envoy Pro SSD enclosure (INCLUDED). This is a very nice sleek portable bus powered enclosure.
Performance results coming tomorrow here at MPG.
