Upgrade your system to the latest SATA III interface (6G) and add a high speed SSD to boost the performance to the max.
Take your desktop to the next level. Simple to install and with PCIe 2.0 data transfer speeds up to 400 MB/sec, the Velocity Solo x1 enables you to experience the blazing speed of an SSD in your desktop via a super fast SATA III connection. Utilising an Asmedia 1061 controller chip, the Velocity Solo X1 is bootable in both PC and Mac systems.
The Velocity Solo x1 takes just minutes to install. Simply connect your Solid State Drive to the Velocity Solo and slide the card into an available PCIe x1 slot (or larger) in your desktop. Once installed, transfer your OS and applications from your desktop hard drive to your new SSD using Apple's built-in Disk Utility. For additional capacity, the Velocity Solo also provides an additional SATA III data connection that can be used to connect to another SSD or hard drive.
The Velocity Solo x1 will function as a boot device in all Mac Pro models including EFI32 bit models made prior to 2008. Supported models include Mac Pro 1,1 2,1 3,1 4,1 5,1. NOTE: Early model Mac Pro’s 1,1 and 2,1 have PCIe 1.0 expansion slots. Performance of the Solo will be limited by the PCIe bus to about 250MB/s max. Your Mac model can be found by doing an "About This Mac", and then "More Info".
