OWC 480GB Aura Pro X2 SSD for MacBook Air & Pro.

From the Manufacturer

OWC Aura Pro X2: Your Mac. More Space. Twice as Fast.

Consumes less power and runs cooler than any drive before it. (lower power consumption vs. comparable factory SSDs and OWC SSDs for all systems)
The ports you need. The keyboard you love. Your setup. Your style.
Your Mac, better than new, with the latest Solid-State Drive technology.
The Aura Pro X2 SSD gives you up to 16 times more space and the speed to keep up with your imagination today and tomorrow. Upgrade your Mac with Aura Pro X2 SSD for a fraction of the cost of a new model and keep your Mac running for years.

Blazing Fast and Super Cool

Aura Pro X2 combines speed, stamina, and efficiency that will change the way you experience your Mac. With read speeds reaching 2989MB/s and write speeds of 1208MB/s, the Aura Pro X2 is up to twice as fast as the original SSDs, delivering performance on par with the latest models. It runs cooler and consumes less power than earlier SSD models, so you can run at peak for longer than ever.

When it's go time, getting off the line and maintaining a high level of performance is equally important. Aura Pro X2 is engineered with advanced SLC caching, providing instant full-speed write acceleration, meaning those media projects and games stream fluidly and respond without lag time. Aura Pro X2 PCIe-based flash storage upgrades are precisely engineered for your Mac, so you'll never need to compromise your data by relying on complicated software hacks or TRIM-enablers to get the most from your upgrade. Just install, migrate your data, and enjoy the great performance of flash storage with up to 16 times the capacity of the factory-installed drive. OWC SSDs perform maintenance tasks in the background that optimize the health, performance, and endurance of your flash drive. These jobs take advantage of available, unwritten areas on the SSD. Aura Pro X2 PCIe-based flash storage reserves 7% of the overall capacity as free space. Always. With this allocated free space, Aura SSDs can perform these normal maintenance tasks making your drive more stable, dependable, and ultimately a safer place to store your data.

Features

  • Up to 2400MB/s write speeds
  • Up to 2TB capacity
  • Up to 3200MB/s read speeds
  • NVMe – PCIe 3.1 x4
  • macOS 10.13+

Keep The Mac you know

From drives to gear to stickers, you’ve put time into making your Mac your own. The Aura Pro X2 can give you up to 16x more storage and up to double the speed of the original drive. With that capacity and power, you can keep your Mac running optimally for years — at a fraction of the cost of buying a new model.

Continuous Compatibility

Aura Pro X2 is designed for the latest macOS versions (macOS High Sierra 10.13 and later), taking full advantage of the advanced features of APFS including strong encryption, copy-on-write metadata, space sharing, cloning for files and directories, snapshots, fast directory sizing, atomic safe-save primitives, and improved file system fundamentals.

macOS 10.13 High Sierra (or later macOS) must be installed on the host computer before installing the Aura Pro X2 SSD. These OS versions include an EFI firmware update for your host computer. Without the update, your new Aura Pro X2 will not function. When installing macOS to your new SSD, boot and press Cmd-Opt-R, then follow the prompts. This will ensure the latest OS version is installed.

Get Up and Zoom

In addition to groundbreaking read and write speeds, the Aura Pro X2 is engineered with enhanced burst performance. This means your files load faster and stream fluidly, giving you an edge on your workflow, games, and creativity.

Easy DIY Upgrade

In just 15 minutes, you can transform your Mac with Aura Pro X2 for speed and storage to rival the latest models. OWC video tutorials walk you through removing your original SSD and replacing it with a new one. Plus, our award-winning US-support team is a just phone call or chat away.

High-Performance + High-Style

Your upgrade should be a seamless experience. That's why Aura Pro X2 SSD upgrade kits come with Envoy Pro, the beautifully designed, high-performance SSD enclosure to reimagine your original PCIe-based flash drive.

When you remove your original flash SSD, it fits perfectly into Envoy Pro so you can transfer all your data to the new Aura Pro X2 inside your laptop. Once the file transfer is complete, enjoy using your Mac's original flash SSD as a fast, external USB drive with transfer speeds up to 426MB/s.

NOTE: The Envoy Pro is designed to work with your factory drive ONLY, The Aura Pro X2 is not designed to work with the Envoy Pro as an external drive.
