We know that storage drives have seen a huge increase in speed and capacity over the past few years, but Other World Computing, also known as OWC, says it has created the world's fastest PCIe SSD.
The OWC Accelsior 8M2, which at first glance may seem graphics card baffling, takes full advantage of PCIe 4.0 bandwidth, with a total speed of 26000 MB/s. By comparison, most PCIe 4.0 SSDs, such as the KC3000 Kingston, FireCuda 530 Seagate, and MP600 Pro XT Corsair, hit 7000Mbps or slightly more. p>
. For some great masterpieces, especially if you are a video editor. This includes the ability to play 16 streams of 8K ProRes444 (or eight 12K streams) in Final Cut Pro X.
The company notes that each of the Accelsior 8M2's eight NVMe M.2 SSD slots can play in x4 lines They run full PCIe data throughput. To ensure long-term operation at top speeds, a silent cooling fan is embedded in the aircraft-grade aluminum heat shield. p>
It's no surprise that an OWC product is so expensive. Pricing starts at $799 for a blank 0TB expansion card ready for buyers to add their own drives. The 2TB model is $1,299, $1,699 for the 4TB version, 8TB for $2,479, $4,999 for the 16TB version, and $7,999 for the 32TB version. Finally, $12,999 for 64TB stored in eight slots. This is a large amount, but beyond that, it is not aimed at ordinary consumers. p>
OWC Accelsior 8M2 is compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux machines and has advanced RAID capabilities, including SoftRAID XT Software RAID Tools, which OWC says includes features that users with hardware RAIDs also get for a year One is cloud support and antivirus protection by Acronis.
“We are always striving to maximize technology, and with OWC Accelsior 8M2 it can be summed up in these cases. "This is the fastest, highest capacity PCIe SSD in the galaxy," said Larry O'Connor, CEO of OWC. p>
