OWC Nearly Doubles PCIe SSD Performance with Accelsior Q — great choice for big Photoshop Files and/or Lightroom catalog space

OWC has just started shipping the Accelsior Q PCIe SSD:

  • Mac Pro (2008 to 2012)
  • Other Macs with Thunderbolt via OWC Helios enclosure or OWC Helios 2 enclosure
  • Available in 480GB, 1TB and 2TB capacities
  • Blazing-Fast PCIe Storage with up to 1,293MB/s sustained speeds
  • PCIe 2.0 x8 SSD

I still run dual OWC Accelsior 960GB PCIe SSDs in an OWC Helios 2 Thunderbolt 2 enclosure—a stalwart performer for years now which I use for huge PSD/PSB files as well as Photoshop scratch space. There is also the single-slot OWC Helios.

Great choice for still-photo or videographers looking for high SSD performance via 2010-2012 Mac Pro, or Thunderbolt Macs with the Helio/Helios 2 cases.
