There is a pretty indepth review on the AnandTech site. AnandTech | The next-gen MacBook Pro with Retina Display Review
That particular page has all of the SSD Benchmark figures.
Ok, so looking at getting a new MacBook Pro (the 15 Retina Display one) and I'm wondering what the flash storage R/W speeds and the IOPS is. I've checked on the Apple store, which wasn't very helpful, so I chatted to a technical sales specialist (that should probably be in sarcastic quotes) online and the conversation basically went something like this:
Me: can you tell me what the actual read write speeds are of the flash storage including the IOPS
Apple: they're at least 4 times faster than a standard 7200rpm drive
Me: yes, but can you give me figures?
Apple: erm.. they're 4 times faster
So, I thought I'd see if anyone on here happens to know those answers. I did manage to get out that the read speeds were around 500, but other than that ..
I might go back to Apple and find out what branded SSD they say they use themselves .. then I can look up those specs .. thanks for all the response thus far ..
It's easy to tell the make of the SSD once you have the MacBook Pro by going to the Apple menu » About this Mac » More Info... » System Report... » Serial ATA. Samsung SSDs start with SMxxxE and SanDisk SSDs start with SDxxxE.
Based on what I have read, all 768GB SSDs are made by Samsung.
