External drive enclosure for


I am trying to assemble an external SSD drive for my MacBook Max M1 16 in 64GB laptop and 1TB SSD.

I wanted to use this Samsung SSD

980 PRO PCIe 4.0 NVMe® SSD 2TB

which has a PCIe 4.0 NVMe® speed (up to 7,000/5,100MB/s for read/write speed)

mounted inside an OWC enclosure

OWC Envoy Express TB3

I cannot figure out if this will support PCIe 4.0 which the 980 pro does.

the 980 pro has 5000 MB/s write speed, but the OWC envoy only goes unto 1553. Seems like a mismatch.

Would appreciate is someone has thought on this.

I do have a Samsung 2TB SSD, but its speed maxes at about 500 MB.

I want to be able to work with the R5's 8K raw clips.
