If we open the discussion to talk about Apple accessories we would find a lot of amazing inventions.
What’s Glyph Atom?
Therefore we cannot forget the Glyph atom raid SSD which is similar to the normal atom SSD except this one contains two SSDs inside in a rate zero configuration and when connected to the write computer this results in even faster transfer speed.
But outside that rate configuration the atom rate SSD is pretty much identical to the atom SSD, now obviously the rate version is a little bit wider to accommodate that extra solid state drive inside.
but you will find everything else is the same. You would find with it two USB C cables, one is a USB C to USB C cable for direct connection to your Mac book Pro and the other is a USB C to USB A cable and this allows you to connect to older Mac hardware.
So you get both of these and both the atom SSD and the atom raid SSD package.
You also get this removable silicon sleeve which has a little bit more safety than others. So here is the atom vs. the atom raid, you will find the atom raid is a little bit wider but other than that pretty much across the board exactly the same.
So let’s talk about really the main advantage of getting the atom raid SSD over the atom SSD.
The first big difference is storage capacity. The raid SSD maxes out at two terabits where as the regular atom SSD maxes out at one terabit and that can be a big difference for some.
However, the real difference is speed because the raid SSD features transfer speed up to 840 megabits per second, though both of these devices use USB 3.1 gen 2 for up to 10 gigabits per second throughput but only the raid model has the speed to take advantage of all that extra throughput.
