The Late 2016 entry-level 13″ MacBook Pro has a ridiculously fast SSD
I'm still putting the (new) Late 2016 MacBook Pro (without the Touch Bar) through a variety of tests, but I just had to point out this SSD benchmark test that I ran using my favorite disk benchmarking utility, QuickBench. The results show, as Apple has claimed, that the SSD inside this machine is crazy fast.As our own Ben Lovejoy noted in an earlier post, the Late 2016 15″ MacBook Pro appears to have the fastest SSD in a production laptop machine. While that may be true, that doesn't mean the 13″ low-end version of the new MacBook Pro is slow.The low-end 2016 MacBook Pro might not be as fast from a processing or graphics perspective, but when it comes to disk I/O, this thing flies. Here is a benchmark taken from QuickBench showcasing both read and write speeds for the 256 GB PCIe SSD inside.
