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 3282MB/s and write speeds of 2432MB/s, the 480GB 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.

This SSD is the latest and greatest blade. 

Maintain Your Edge

When it's go time, getting off the line and maintaining a high level of performance are 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. You might even forget what that beachball looks like.

Do it yourself

Note, this product does not include the installation kit or enclosure for your original Apple SSD (see part OWCS3DAPB4MB02K for the product including the kit). Replacing the PCIe-based flash drive in your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro with Retina display is as simple as removing a few screws and requires a Pentalobe P5 screwdriver and Torx T5. The video installation guide below means you have an OWC expert with you every step of the way.

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.
