OWC Accelsior 8M2 PCIe SSD offers up to 64TB of Blazing-Fast Storage Capacity

Consult with Lloyd for any kind of computer purchase, RAID setup, backup strategy, Photoshop optimization, etc.

If you have the cash, you need never use hard drives for main storage again. They’re still useful for backups of course, but fast SSD storage eliminates the typically slowest part of the performance equation (CPU + GPU + memory + I/O + software).

I’ve run for a couple of years now using an all-SSD main storage system of the 16TB OWC Accelsior 4M2, OWC Thunderblade, and the internal Mac Pro SSD. It is super nice not having any 'spinners' slowing me down for my daily work.

OWC ACCELSIOR 8M2 PCIe SSD

Debuting this week is the OWC Accelsior 8M2 PCIe SSD, and 8-blade PCIe 4.0 card for Mac Pro or Windows PC. Options for 0/2/4/8/16/32/64TB configurations from $799 to $12999.

Claimed to be the “world’s fastest and highest capacity PCIe SSD”, MPG has not yet tested this beast. But in principle it should run proportionally fast because it has twice as many SSD blades as its 4-blade OWC Accelsior 4M2 sibling, which delivers about 6.5 GB/sec*. So in theory the Accelsior 8M2 should be capable of something around 12GB/sec.

The Accelsior 8M2 fits into a PCIe slot in your Mac Pro or PC. It could also be used on any Thunderbolt 3/4 Mac using a Thunderbolt PCIe enclosure, like the OWC Mercury Helios 3S. But speeds will be limited to Thunderbolt bandwidth, maxing-out at 2.7 GB/sec.

* Barring the problematic macOS caching bugs.
