Memory Upgrades for 2019 Mac Pro - Save Up to 65% vs Factory Costs

Looking for a Capacious Supremely Fast SSD for Your Photo or Video Work? OWC Thunderblade Thunderbolt 3 SSD

I value both speed and silent operation when I work and finally the product has come along that gets both done for me with no compromise.

I now use the internal SSD plus the 8TB OWC Thunderblade SSD while I work, not having to listen to any fan noise or spinning hard drives. A nice bonus is that I save power (electricity) as well. More units can be daisy-chained for more capacity.

I still use hard drives extensively but they are now relegated to overflow storage for years-old work, and backups. See my discussion of tiered storage in Banishing the Drone of Spinning Hard Drives: and Fans: Moving to 8TB OWC Thunderblade SSD.

High speed over 8TB

Below, this is about as fast as a Thunderbolt 3 SSD can go (2.7 GB/sec). The speed is jaw-dropping across the entire 8TB of capacity for both reads and writes.

Transfer speed across the various I/O sizes is similarly impressive:
