Peak Data Rate**  Read: 559MB/s Write: 527MB/s and Incompressible Data Rate*** Read: 479MB/s Write: 282MB/s

 
This is faster than the Mercury Electra 6G SSD offers fast
Peak Data Rate** Read: 556MB/s Write: 523MB/s and Incompressible Data Rate*** Write: 235MB/s Write: 235MB/s
 

 

  • Exceptional, High-Performance optimized for Maximum SATA
    6Gb/s Performance

    Up to 559MB/s data rate.
  • Ultra-efficient Block Management & Wear Leveling
    Prevents write speed degradation commonly experienced by other brands' SSD.
  • EXTREME Power Efficiency
    Uses up to 75% less power than hard drives and up to 50% less power than current SSDs* when active.

 

  • One of the fastest Internal SATA 2.5" SSD with available data rates up to 559MB/s.
  • SandForce DuraClass™ technology with Ultra-efficient Block Management & Wear Leveling offers highest endurance, performance, and power efficiency in a SATA SSD.
  • SandForce® Processor maximizes read and write performance to greatly extend the endurance and overall reliability of the drive.
  • Up to 100X greater data protection than what the highest rated enterprise class conventional hard disk drive (HDD) provides.
  • Best in class error correction (ECC) and SandForce RAISE™ (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) technology provides RAID like data protection and reliability without loss of transfer speed due to parity.
  • Intelligent "recycling" for advanced free space management
  • Highly secure… all data automatically stored in AES-128 encrypted format.

 

Over provisioning & wear management explained
Some of the drive space in OWC SSDs are allocated for RAISE — which provides real time data redundancy, ECC Error Correction, and reserve cell space.

Example: An OWC Pro SSD that's 240GB in size with 7% over-provisioning is actually a 256GB drive with 7% allocated for data management, and to maintain the drive's high-performance level.

Unlike most SSDs on the market today, the Mercury Pro family uses advanced DuraWrite™ wear-leveling and block management technologies to keep Read/Write performance at peak while others see performance fall.

  1. ** Peak Data Rate for the 1.0TB SSD is 450MB/s read and 500MB/s write.
    *** While any OWC SSD will provide significantly faster performance than a traditional hard drive, the OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro 6G is optimized to handle incompressible (already compressed) file types, like those used by audio, video, photography professionals, for the fastest performance available.
