2016 MacBook Pro: Jaw-Dropping SSD Performance

Mac wish list all 2016 MacBook pro models at B&H Photoall 15" Apple MacBook Pro 2016 models • all 13" Apple MacBook Pro 2016 models. MPG gets credit if you buy through those links.

Jaw dropping performance.

The graph was blank at first—the figures were off the scale of all previous Macs! Insane.


The OWC teardown of the touchbar 2016 MacBook Pro shows a soldered-on SSD. If this is the price to pay for performance, so be it. Be sure to order 2016 MacBook Pro with 1TB or 2TB SSD. Smaller options are likely to become cramped.

Tested with the fill-volume command of diglloydTools DiskTester. The MacBook Pro was booted via external drive, then the 2TB internal SSD was erased before testing.
