Other World Computing, a.k.a. OWC, brought its new Thunderbolt lineup to CES Unveiled, along with a brand new Mac Pro to show off how well its storage and expansion units fit with the new black motif.
OWC (Other World Computing) has recently announced that a memory upgrade kit will be available for the 2013 iMac models of 27 inches. This newest memory upgrade by OWC will be available in different variants which will range from 8 GB till 32 GB. With memory extensions influencing consumer choice and being so influential nowadays, this was a clever offer by OWC.
Other World Computing has just announced the Envoy Pro EX ultra-portable solid state drive. This portable drive is small enough to fit in your pocket and is made of anodized aluminum so it goes great with both Macs and PCs. The drive uses a USB 3.0 connection for both power and data transfer. Inside you have OWC’s own SandForce Driven OWC Aura Pro 6G SSD and you can expect speeds of up to 436 MB/s.
OWC, a.k.a. Otherworld Computing, showed off primarily three new products: the Accelsior, the Viper, and the KR. The Accelsior is a storage system using PCI-Express to serve up SSD blades. Configured in RAID 0, the drives were capable of more than 1300 MBps read and a very impressive write speed. The Viper is a new SSD that OWC claims will saturate a SATA III 6 Gbps connection at its 600 MBps maximum. Lastly, OWC shows a ridiculously awesome 200 ft drop test on its KR series of iPhone 4/S and iPhone 5 cases. These cases are built to withstand some serious punishment. Check out the video for more on OWC’s CES 2013 lineup.
Other World Computing (OWC), a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, today introduced the OWC Mercury Accelsior M, a Mac and PC-bootable, fully supported PCIe controller card that accepts any standard 50mm mSATA Solid State Drive. By utilizing the fastest data interface available in a Mac Pro or PC-the PCIe slot-the Mercury AccelsiorM can offer data transfer speeds that exceed 3Gb/s SSDs….up to 380MB/s.
PCI-Express solid state drives are fairly new and there are only a handful of these drives available. These devices break the speed barrier on SATA 6GB/s drives by using the PCI-E interface. The most prevalent PCI-E solid state drives our OCZ’s RevoDrive series, but OCZ better watch out because the drive we are taking a look at today has a few features that the RevoDrive’s do not. The OWC Mercury Accelsior PCI-E Solid State Drive comes in capacities from 120GB to 960GB, is upgradable, and is both PC and Mac “plug and play” compatible. Want to learn more?

Otherworld Computing, known more succinctly as simply OWC, showed one of the coolest things we’ve seen at CES: a smart electrical outlet with USB ports. It’s not the first electrical outlet with USB ports, but it’s by far the best designed. It features spring-loaded covers that kill the power when closed to prevent wasted juice and is the first UL-listed device of its kind, a necessary requirement for insurance-conscious homeowners. OWC also showed us its new lightning fast solid state drives (SSDs) and its expandible storage device primary meant for Mac Mini. ThinkComputers’ Colin Dean speaks with OWC’s Grant Dahlke in this video interview.
Otherworld Computing, more commonly known as simply OWC, made a splash this year at CES with its line of Mercury Aura Pro SSDs for 2008 and 2009 models of the Macbook Air and other Macbooks. It’s the first of its kind made specifically for the MBA. The drive trounces standard HDD performance, and shows a 400% performance increase against the stock SSD from the 2009 model and a 200% performance increase against the 2010 model of the MBA.
