You'd need a PCIe adaptor card specifically made for the nMP SSD. I don't think anybody has come up with that yet.I would like to remove my Areca RAID card + RAID and instead place just one 512 GB SSD disk from new Mac Pro on a PCI-Express 2.0 card. Is this possible ?
Isn't there another option too? I think it's called Sonnet Tempo II (I think they have a demo card out now with dual micro SSD blades on it. Can anyone comment on this? I am looking to get one myself.You should really just get one of these:
Unless you've somehow acquired a SSD chip already and are looking for a way to use it, that is. But if you've bought nothing yet this is the simplest solution.
I don't think they work with Boot Camp, but other than that they make fantastic boot drives. I don't need BC so I've been very happy with mine.
I looked at that one too Flow. The only thing that bothers me about that card is that it uses the bigger SSD. With the micro SSD, when I get a nMP someday, I can use (hopefully) the micro SSD cards in it, thus getting the most bang for the buck.Actually the best option IMHO, is the Apricorn Velocity Solo x2 with a Samsung Evo SSD. This seems to be a good fast redouble free solution. I have one in my 5,1 and it's working perfectly.
At this point in time there is no way to use the SSD from a nMP in a cMP and I doubt there ever will be. There never really will be a market for such an in interface IMHO.
When you spread FUD about the nMP yes it does make you come across as a hater.I certainly am not a hater.
I doubt that and what point are you trying to make? That you have used computers for a long time. So just because you have used Apple computers for a supposedly long time means that you do like everything about the nMP. Seems like a stretch of reasoning to me.I have been using Macs probably longer than you have been alive.
That the perfect definition of the part of your post that I quotedYou constantly shoot from the hip, and you usually miss.
Actually I don't even know how many posts I have as I have never checked so try again.Your one of the few here that post just to get you post count up.
Yet you haven't learned you to use the ignore feature of the forums.I have learned to ignore your posts
I did not attack you. You need to calm down and act like the adult you try to imply that you are. On the other hand you could throw a fit and tell people to stay away.when you are start attacking me you are going too far. Stay away Fella!
Just because no one else uses the same interface does not mean that the interface is proprietary. For an interface to be considered proprietary the company has to have a legal exclusive right to the design or technology. Think Rambus.And, who else uses the nMP storage interface The nMBP SSDs will fit, but they are different.
