Solid state hard drive mac pro 2008

The best price I found was on Amazon. So you would get 70 percent of the best case transfer times for read, 85 percent of the best case transfer times for write. I looked at the full amazon description, and it states that the Mac Pro will not boot reliably from the card even though it's EFI Should I be worried about that?

It says it's not supported, though it should work most likely???

Bruno Perri. Agree with DenisCmdr. Installing a solid state drive (SSD)

What an installation breeze. I then followed the latest Apple Knowledge base information about backing up and using the Migration Assistant Utility. Someone told me that I would burn the SSD Disk with my Mac Pro early end because it lacks the technology to fully exploit, is that true? The real issue is the systems SATA ports speed and what you install need to match. Then review the spec sheet of the drive you are think on using. Is your systems SATA port data rate listed?

Alexander Ljungberg. I didn't have access to a 2. I simply installed the SSD drive 'bare' in hard drive slot 1 by pushing it into the SATA connector at the back and then supporting the drive with a small object underneath it. The small object sits on top of the grey box underneath hard drive slot 1 fan assembly? In my case a small box of staples was just the right height to keep the SSD drive perfectly straight.

This is probably a risky way to install it since if the drive comes in at an angle it might ruin the SATA connector from stress in the plastic. But it works for me for now. You can also try this. Michael Galano. Posted: August 2.

How to Install a SSD into a Mac Pro

Tetsujin Tetsujin You only need to worry about the power connectors. The performance of 8 cores makes it still somewhat competitive with hardware from as late as SSD is a cheap way to make it feel like a new machine.

Install SSD Disk on Mac Pro Early end 2009

What is Bad: Uses the older 'front side bus' technology Intel chips; access to RAM is much slower than the '09 and later which use the Core i7-class bus. Single core performance is much slower than anything made in the last 5 years, even for the most part at the low end. However, you can work around this with a few hardware dollars.
