OWC Ships New 1TB Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD
View OWC Mercury SSD lineup (60/120/240/480/1000 GB) as well as all OWC SSDs and SSD upgrades for all Macs.
MPG expects to have the new 1TB OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD in for testing soon. This model is just out but not yet formally announced.
1 TB = 1000 GB = 976 GiB
While there has been a 1TB Mercury Electra 6G SSD available for some time, this new 1TB Extreme Pro 6G model utilizes a higher performance design. MPG has learned that in particular, the new 1TB model maintains full performance even for incompressible data.
MPG hopes that the new 1TB model will become an option for the bus-powered OWC Mercury Elite Pro Mini, but this is unclear as yet.
Several MPG MacBook Pro 13/15-inch servers utilizing OWC 480GB SSDs will be upgraded to this new 1TB SSD just as soon as testing is completed.
