Sequential transfer speed is the most critical metric for applications that work with large files.
Numbers for the 2016 MacBook Pro were obtained with macOS 10.12.1; numbers for the 2017 MacBook Pro and 2015 MBP and 2017 iMac 5K were all obtained on macOS 10.12.5.
For very large sequential transfers, the 2017 MacBook Pro SSD is a match for the 2016 Macbook Pro SSD, within the margin of error—no practical diffference. This peformance is the best MPG has ever tested on a Mac.
