“The new MacBook Pros, along with all of their other speedy goodness, have SATA3 interface for storage access (but not to the optical drive),” Seth Weintraub reports for 9 to 5 Mac. “Apple’s build to order solid state drives are SATA II and are very speedy.”
“However, Macotakara popped in a Micron RealSSD SATA III drive and got some pretty incredible speeds,” Weintraub reports. “In fact, it benchmarked at about double Apple’s BTO option(!!) on read speed (450MB/sec) and 50% faster writes (260MB/sec).”
Weintraub reports, “That means it takes just over 2 seconds to read a Gigabyte and under 4 seconds to write one. That is fast.”
