In situations where sustained write performance is critical, and when a drop in performance can lead to lost frames and production time. Some drives drop to 50-60MB/s after their cache is exhausted. However, the Mercury Extreme Pro is up to 10x faster than what many hard drives deliver today after their peak speed is fatigued with as little as 2-3 percent of the hard drive written. The drives can also be used for storage within A/V equipment from Blackmagic, SoundDevice, and Atomos devices, as well as for internal Mac and PC hardware upgrades.
Of course, since this is a reliable SSD, it needs to have a good form factor that will fit the smallest cases. Knowing this, OWC made it so the SSDs are small enough (2.5 inch) so that it fits the majority of situations and doesn’t mess with your storage space. Of course, this also benefits gaming computers as SSDs offer significantly better performance when it comes to gaming, particularly in terms of loading times.
