OWC Releases Accelsior 4M2 SSD: Four-Way Combination Rage 6000MB/s

To cater to Apple’s redesigned Mac Pro workstation, OWC also released its fastest SSD product line — the Accelsior 4M2 SSD with a four-way M.2 combination that offers 8TB of capacity and speeds up to 6000 MB/s. The product is based on Xiangshuo’s ASM2824 PCIe 3.0 x4 bridging chip to transfer four M.2-2280 slots.

Despite the main Mac platform, the SSDs are also available on PCs. In this case, however, it can only be used with other RAID software and as a normal PCIe SSD extended memory card.

OWC says it will open the Accelsior 4M2 SSD this week on December 30. The quasi-system version is $249.99 (1753 RMB) and 1TB to 8TB capacity is $479.99 to $1599.99 (3366 to 11220 RMB).
