OWC, a company that specializes in hardware for Mac computers, has announced the availability of the new Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD. It’s the latest version of OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD 2.5-inch SATA solid state drives offered in a range of capacities from 240GB up to 4TB. According to the company, the new storage device is engineered to bring older Macs and PCs up to current-model performance levels. The new SSD is promised to be up to 10x faster than what many drives deliver today.

OWC says that the Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD is ideal for audio, video, photography editing, and production for users who need sustained performance. The company claims the new line offers consistent reading and writing speeds over its entire range. Read and write speeds exceeding 500MB/s are reported across all of a drive's capacity, instead of experiencing slowness when it starts to fill up with data. The drive's peak reading speed is 559MB/s, while writing tops out at 527MB/s, while random 4K performance is specced up to 60,000 IOPS.

The Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD features Tier-1 synchronous NAND to help support maximum data throughput and is equipped with a SandForce Processor (7% over-provisioning), enabling both high performance and reliability levels. In addition, the Mercury Extreme Pro 6G 4TB SSD also features DuraWrite and RAISE technologies to further promote longevity. OWC also offers a five-year limited warranty for the drive, along with live support.

The Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSDs are universal-fit drives that work in any system accepting 2.5-inch SATA SSDs, so they can be used as replacement drives for older Macs and PCs and in RAID configurations. But no matter how good and reliable they are, sooner or later, all SSD can fail because they have a limited number of write cycles. Then their owners will need to contact a professional data recovery services provider to get their irreplaceable photos, videos, and other documents back.

ACEs will gladly help the OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD owners with all their data recovery needs.
