2017 MacBook Pro: Text Search with grep Versus Other Macs (SSD Speed + CPU Speed)

Mac wish listall 15" Apple MacBook Pro 2017 modelsMPG gets credit if you buy through those links.
MPG tested a fully-loaded 2017 MacBook Pro with 1TB SSD.
Suggested accessories include the OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock, the 1TB Envoy Pro EX.

See the MPG review of the 2017 Macbook Pro.

Be careful what you wish for, because small I/O speed is usually much more important than the peak speed for very large transfers.

2017 MacBook Pro: Grep (Search)

The 2017 MacBook Pro is slower than the 2015 MacBook Pro in this test, just as the 2017 iMac 5K is slower than the 2015 iMac 5K. Seems like Apple has made a change to SSDs that degrades small I/O performance, just as measured by DiskTester in the SSD Speed vs Transfer Size.
