About the Other World Computing Aura Pro 6G

The OWC/Other World Computing 120GB Aura Pro 6G Internal Solid State Drive is specifically designed for use with the MacBook Air 2012 Edition. It supports 6 Gbps SATA and utilizes enhanced DuraClass technology with a SandForce processor to deliver high transfer speeds, endurance, performance and power efficiency. It features 128GB total flash memory with 8GB memory allocated for real-time data redundancy and error correction.

The Aura Pro 6G SSD features RAISE (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) technology along with ECC protection to protect data on your drive. An intelligent block management and wear leveling system evenly distributes the data over the drive. Furthermore, an intelligent read disturb management spreads the active read/write, eliminating data corruption.

Advanced intelligent recycling ensures space management by re-writing the data over the Solid State Drive. In order to achieve the higher bandwidth potential of the SATA 6 Gbps bus standard, the Aura Pro 6G SSD utilizes Tier-1 Synchronous NAND instead of the commonly-utilized Asynchronous NAND. Synchronous NAND enables reads and writes to be "synced" with the Solid State Drive processor's clock signal for maximum data throughput.

Other World Computing Aura Pro 6G Features

  • DuraWrite extends the endurance of your Solid State Drive (SSD)
  • Intelligent Block Management & Wear Leveling automatically distributes data evenly across the entire SSD
  • Intelligent Read Disturb Management spreads the active read/write across the flash components eliminating data corruption caused by constant use
  • Intelligent "Recycling" for advanced free space management gradually re-writes data across the SSD over time to ensure data never gets corrupted
  • RAISE (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) protects the data on your drive similar to having a RAID setup
  • Best-in-Class ECC Protection for longest data retention and drive life
  • Better by Design: OWC SSD with DuraWrite Technology, optimizes writes to the flash memory over conventional controllers increasing the overall endurance and reliability of the complete SSD. Highly intelligent block management and wear leveling also extends the overall endurance
  • Synchronous Interface NAND: To achieve the higher bandwidth potential of the SATA 6Gb/s bus standard, the OWC Aura Pro 6G SSDs utilize Tier-1 Synchronous NAND instead of commonly utilized Asynchronous NAND
