The Velocity Solo is the easiest way to add the speed of Solid State and
SATA III to your desktop
Upgrade your system to the latest SATA III interface (6Gbs) and add a high speed SSD to boost the performance to the max.
Easy to install, the Velocity Solo is an industry standard PCIe 2.0 card designed to add a 2.5” Solid State Drive (SSD) via a super fast SATA III connection. With data transfer rates of 6Gbs, SATA III is twice as fast as SATA II and takes full advantage of the latest SSD. The Velocity Solo uses a Marvel 9125 SATA 6G AHCI Raid controller, delivering speeds up to 400MB/s Read and 220MB/s Write.* The Solo also provides an additional SATA III data connection that can be used to connect to another SSD or HDD to provide unparalleled capacity and performance.
Takes just minutes to install
Simply connect your Solid State Drive to the Velocity Solo SATA III connector and slide into an available PCIe slot in your desktop. Once installed, download and run Apricorn’s EZ Gig cloning software and your upgrade is complete. For additional capacity use the auxiliary SATA III connector for a super fast connection to an additional hard drive or solid state drive.
Ideal for High Performance Applications and Improving Gaming Performance
Running your OS and applications on an SSD provides a measureable performance increase, but the Velocity Solo is also the perfect upgrade for improving gaming performance.
SSDs Improve Game Performance - As games become too large for their assets to be fully cached on modern graphics cards and main memory, the addition of an SSD for faster disk access during game play results in less in-game pauses and a smoother playing experience. Games are also faster to load and save when using an SSD.
Blending Performance and Capacity – Apricorn’s EZ Gig Cloning Software with Data Select makes it easy
The Solo is bundled with Apricorn’s EZ Gig Cloning software with Data Select. Data Select provides a simple method to deselect data folders from the cloning process which is helpful when migrating from a large HDD to a smaller SSD and perfect for creating a Boot Disk. This gives you the option to run your OS and applications from a fast, smaller SSD boot drive, while keeping your documents and media files on your original hard drive.
EZ Gig enables you to clone your hard drive in just three simple steps
