OWC, or Other World Computing has been in the hardware business for a while, often focusing on Macs for storage. In recent years they’ve found success in providing hardware for more, such as Do-It-Yourself Kits for upgrading drives on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well as SSDs for PCs. With the Aura P12, it is a non-volitile memory express M.2 drive, an SSD that has better speed and durability over SATA, and it shows its worth. The OWC Aura P12 M.2 NVMe 2TB SSD beats every other drive in my system, hands-down.
The SSD market has come a long way since the early days of high prices and relatively low capacities. The performance gains of NAND flash memory over traditional mechanical hard drives were immediately apparent, though, and compelling enough to convince plenty of early adopters to jump on board to enjoy faster load times for their OS and most-used applications.
CORSAIR, a world leader in enthusiast memory, PC hardware and components today announced the launch of its latest range of solid state drives, the Neutron Series XTi. With a blisteringly quick quad-core Phison controller and performance MLC NAND, Neutron Series XTi offers SATA 6Gbps-saturating transfer speeds of up to 560MB/sec and excellent sustained performance consistency with even the most demanding of workloads.
