This is quite a bit off topic for webflow but I wanted to share a cool Mac Pro upgrade that is amazing. So I was lucky enough to get a 2010 mac pro 12 core from a client for a great price and I wanted to upgrade to an SSD. Issue is it has SATA II which is slow. So I first got a pcie card http://eshop.macsales.com/item/OWC/SSDACL6G.S/ which let me mount a standard ssd into a card slot. Coolio. Here’s the benchmark.
It was pretty fast but I really wanted speeds similar to the new macbook pros and mac pro that have pci flash storage.
That’s when I found this combo. This adapter http://www.amazon.com/Lycom-DT-120-PCIe-Adapter-Support/dp/B00MYCQP38/ and this pcie drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA12K3G96790
for a total of $180 yielded this result:
Pretty crazy huh? Just wanted to share with anyone out there who has a 2009 or newer mac pro tower and is looking for a serious speed upgrade.
