OWC Announces the 'Viper', a Capacious Blazingly Fast SSD for High-End Video and Similar Demanding Uses

MPG has been hoping to see a mainstream high capacity and high performance SSD offering for well over a year now. OWC is soon to offer such a product. Pricing has not been announced.

  • 4TB and 8TB capacities.
  • Up to 1400MB/s via Thunderbolt 2.
  • Optional RAID 4 Edition includes revolutionary SoftRAID, optimized with RAID 4 specifically for SSDs.
  • Daisy-chain support for additional Thunderbolt technology enabled devices
    Variable-speed fan and aluminum flow-through design for quiet cooling

RAID-4 has the same fault tolerance properties as RAID-5, but is proven to be faster in MPG tests. Hence OWC is going with RAID-4.

With this SSD capacity, it becomes possible for 99% of users to run an SSD-only system, using hard drives only for backup purposes. Look for an early test here at MPG.

Note: “dual thunderbolt interfaces” as stated below means simply dual Thunderbolt 2 ports, so the unit is daisy-chainable.
