I have a 2010 Mac Pro 12 Core 2.93 used almost exclusively for CC and am ready to jump to an SSD system drive.

Please suggest the best for the purpose. It has to be SATA mount (drive bay) as my slots are full or would go w PCIE mount.

Is there any benefit to buying a 6gbs SSD when my system is only 3gbs?

When I install the SSD I will also be updating from Mavericks to El Capitan which I understand puts the TRIM issue to rest.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

I would go with a 3Gbs ssd drive from OtherWorldComputing. From what I've read if you use a 6gbs drive in the Mac Pro you will only get 1.5gbs speed, but if you use a 3gbs drive you will get 3gbs speed. They also have a PCI slot drive that gets faster than 6gbs speed. Here Are links:

If you have a free pci slot I'd go with the card, if not the 3G ssd drive is the way to go.

A better buy, and I just bought and installed one is the 1TB Samsung 850 PRO series. It supports TRIM through terminal and has a 10 year warranty. There have been some misinformation about this drive and TRIM support, the articles you will read have to do with a specific RAID in Linux OS.

Super fast and not too expensive. I bought mine through B&H in NYC.

Interesting!!! That is 2X as fast as the OWC 6G SSD I'm running on my older 2008 Mac Pro. It appears that Greg is absolutely correct, in that it's probably running at either 1.5G speed.

Since mine is only my boot drive I'm not overly concerned, as it is twice as fast as a single spinning disk, however, it is somewhat surprising that it can't perform up to 6G specs like many spinning disks can. For example, two newer 6G Hitachi striped together as RAID 0 deliver approx 370MB/sec, which is way faster than any two 1.5 or 3G drives striped as RAID 0.

I ran the same test on my samsung 840 evo and it gets around 250 MBS then goes to 32 after about 45 seconds.

32 or 320? I'm using the 850Pro not the EVO.

i am getting "32" after 45 seconds or so. Premiere started crashing last week too. Took me a bit of time to figure this out. I think I am done with Samsung.

I went with the OWC 3G in a drive bay. Installation shortly. Any advice is welcome.
