I have a new 2014 MacBook Pro with 1TB internal PCIe SSD. Blackmagic Disk Speed Test is reporting read/write speeds of over 900MB/s.
I am debating whether to swap this machine for a 512GB one (saving $500) and using an external Thunderbolt SSD drive, which would be cheaper and more practical.
My questions are:
- Is that 900MB speed realistic? Seems incredibly fast.
- Could an external Thunderbolt SSD be that fast? Theoretically Tb can do 10Gb/s ~ 1200 MB/s...
