Apricorn launches the Mac Array, an internal SSD RAID storage array for Mac Pro. The array is designed to bridge the gap between your computer’s high capacity, slow hard drive and your system’s RAM, taking over your computer’s processing (acting as virtual memory) for a performance increase of up to 10 times. It is deal for video editing and image processing applications.
The Mac Array is built-in around four WD 128GB SSDs on Apricorn’s SATA PCI-E Host card. It uses one internal full length PCIe X4 slot, keeping the other slots and drive bays free for expansion. The Apricorn Mac Array costs $1499.
The Mac Array comes pre-configured with the Mac BIOS and RAID 0 (striping) for maximum performance and takes just minutes to install. Simply remove your Mac Pro’s side panel, slide the Mac Array into an available PCIe X4 slot, replace the side panel and install the included driver. Your system will instantly recognize the newly installed drives – with the drives already formatted, you are now ready for business.
