Mercury Accelsior™ M
PCI Express Solid State Drive

No drivers are required making AccelsiorM a simple
Plug and Play bootable solution.
3 Year Warranty
If you can install a memory module, you'll find adding the Mercury AccelsiorM high-performance PCIe card into your desktop/tower machine a breeze. By utilizing the fastest data interface available in a Apple® Mac Pro® or PC—the PCIe slot—Mercury AccelsiorM offers speeds up to 380MB/s read & write performance... that's faster than a 3Gb/s SSD! Now you can stop waiting for I/O-intensive apps like Photoshop®, Final Cut Pro®, or Avid Pro Tools® to render, capture or process; give an instant boost to business critical applications; and even dramatically reduces game level-loading, object streaming, and save times for more play time and less waiting.
Mac® and PC Bootable with No Driver Setup
As the industry's first both Mac and PC-bootable, fully supported PCIe card, Mercury AccelsiorM lets you install the mSATA SSD of your choice for near instant startup and app launching. With a driverless setup, it's truly a Plug and Play, high-performance solution.
Future-Ready for Growing Needs
By adding a higher capacity mSATA SSD, you'll be able to meet expanding storage needs while extending the useful life of your investment.

Note about compatibility and throughput:

  • Compatibility:
    • Fully compatible with Mac Pros and PCs offering an available PCIe 2.0 x1 slot or better.
  • For full throughput on PCs:
    • PCIe 2.0 x1 slot or better is required. Use of a PCIe 1.0 x1 slot will reduce performance.
  • For full throughput on Mac Pros:
    • 2010 & 2009: Use either x4 or x16 as all will provide full throughput.
    • 2008: Use x16 slot for full throughput. Use of the PCIe 1.0 x1 slot will reduce performance.
    • 2007 & 2006: All slots are compatible, but are PCIe 1.0 slots and will deliver reduced performance.
