The OWC Mercury Accelsior is a PCIe SSD designed for the enthusiast and creative professional market who crave the fastest storage available within a client workstation. OWC uses a unique design, essentially leveraging a PCIe PCB with two host slots for their gumstick-shaped SSDs and a management controller that ties the drives together. The architecture itself isn't novel, but OWC's implementation is, using in-house components and engineering to make the Accelsior come to life. OWC also provides options for the user which are unique. By default the drives ship in a RAID0 configuration which offers throughput around 800MB/s; users also have ability to switch to RAID1 for data redundancy, or JBOD mode to access the individual drives.

Thanks for an interesting review.

Will you review the Sonnet Tempo PCIe cards too? I can't find that you have done this already.

Either the non-Pro or the Pro model (though preferably the latter). This would be an interesting comparison, methinks.

Thanks for considering.

We don't follow that brand, so no plans to include them at current.
