    First and Only Complete Storage Upgrade

    The Aura Pro 6G SSD for the rMBP Includes all the tools necessary for installation and free video instructions.

    Freedom of Choice

    When first introduced, the MacBook Pro with Retina display base model offered a 256GB SSD configuration with no upgrade option. Now, instead of being "factory locked", the OWC Aura Pro 6G gives you the freedom to upgrade your capacity to meet your storage needs.

    Better by Design

    "Mean Time To Failure" - We all know that nothing lasts forever. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't get the most out of your investment. OWC SSD with DuraWrite™ Technology, optimizes writes to the flash memory over conventional controllers increasing the overall endurance and reliability of the complete SSD. Highly intelligent block management and wear leveling also extends the overall endurance. This adds up to a MTTF that is higher than most SSDs and enterprise class hard drives on the market today.

    Synchronous Interface NAND

    To achieve the higher bandwidth potential of the SATA 6Gb/s bus standard, the OWC Aura Pro 6G SSDs utilize Tier-1 Synchronous NAND instead of commonly utilized Asynchronous NAND. Synchronous NAND enables reads and writes to be "synced" with the SSD processor's clock signal for maximum data throughput.

    The Aura is compatible with:

  • Mac model ID MacBook Pro (15-inch Retina Display 2012)
  • Model ID: MacBookPro10,12.3GHz, 2.6GHz, 2.7GHz
