Boot, Launch, Create, and Save Faster
With its simultaneous internal and external storage performance, the Mercury Accelsior_E2 offers the the best combination of speed, capacity, and connectivity available today. Stop waiting for I/O-intensive apps like Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, or Avid Pro Tools to render, capture or process. Start working faster with near instantaneous boots and app launches. And save your work faster than ever before.
The Accelsior_E2 utilises the PCIe slot in Mac Pros and PC towers, the fastest data interface available, to deliver up to 820MB/s of blistering perfomance. That's nearly 3x faster than an SSD equipped Mac Pro 3Gb/s drive bay, and well beyond 6Gb/s drive speeds. When your work is completed, transfer it for backup or archival purposes at speeds up to 600MB/s via the two eSATA expansion ports to any external storage device with an eSATA port.
Accelsior_E2's SandForce Driven SSD blades provide a more responsive and productive computing experience with cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient operation compared to standard hard drives. SandForce RAISE technology provides RAID-like data redundancy protection and reliability.
