OWC Envoy Pro FX: Versatility Meets Speed

To enable this dual-use functionality, the Envoy Pro FX SSD relies on two bridge controllers, as TB4/USB4 controller chips are not yet available. Depending on the port you connect it to, you can achieve impressive data transfer speeds of up to 40 gigabits per second for Thunderbolt or a respectable 10 gigabits per second in compliance with USB 3.2 Gen2 standards. This means whether you're handling large media files, gaming, or running resource-intensive applications, the Envoy Pro FX has the speed you need to keep up with your demands.

Cross-Platform Compatibility

One of the key highlights of the Envoy Pro FX is its compatibility with both Windows and Mac OS systems, made possible by the inclusion of the OWC Drive Guide software. In a Windows environment, the drive is formatted with the NTFS file system, ensuring smooth and hassle-free operation. For Mac users, it's ready to go right out of the box, offering plug-and-play simplicity.

OWC Envoy Pro Exceptional Benchmark Performance

In performance testing, the OWC Envoy Pro FX exceeded expectations on both Thunderbolt and USB Type-C interfaces, often setting new records. Through the TB3 port, the external SSD achieved blazingly fast read speeds of nearly 3040MB/s and impressive write speeds of up to 2983MB/s, delivering an exceptional overall performance.

Notably, the USB Type-C port also exhibited remarkable performance, achieving read speeds of 1083MB/s and write speeds of 1081MB/s, occasionally surpassing read speeds. This exceptional benchmark performance is further complemented by outstanding real-world performance.

Real-World Speed and Efficiency

When tested with a 4.17GB DVD movie transfer, the Envoy Pro FX portable maintained impressive sequential data transfer speeds. Through Thunderbolt, it reached read speeds of almost 1343MB/s and write speeds of 998MB/s. Similarly, via USB, it delivered efficient performance, reading at 807MB/s and writing at 622MB/s.

Even when dealing with small files, the external SSD didn't disappoint, offering remarkable speeds. Thunderbolt recorded read speeds of around 1342MB/s and write speeds of almost 998MB/s, while USB achieved respectable read speeds of 582MB/s and write speeds of nearly 440MB/s.

Efficient Heat Management

However, it's worth noting that the metal case of the Envoy Pro FX SSD can get quite hot during extended usage, with surface temperatures reaching up to 110°F when connected via Thunderbolt. Fortunately, the well-designed case with side vents allows for efficient heat dissipation. In terms of power consumption, it consumes 3.3 watts in idle mode and 3.7 watts under load.

If you're in search of an external  portable drive that can deliver maximum transfer speeds and your computer supports Thunderbolt and USB-C, the OWC Envoy Pro FX is a solid choice. Its outstanding performance, compatibility with both Windows and Mac platforms, and durable design make it a versatile and user-friendly option for a wide audience of computer users. Whether you're a gamer, content creator, or simply need fast and reliable external storage, the Envoy Pro FX has you covered.

The OWC Envoy Pro FX is not just an external SSD; it's a high-performance solution that adapts to your needs, offering the speed, efficiency, and reliability that today's computer users demand.
