I just bought a new MacBook Pro 2017 (no TouchBar) a month ago. I have run a speed test with Blackmagic Disk Speed Test application. The result is in image below. Blackmagic test result

I think SSD write speed is a little slower than normal. Anyone can help me with this? Thanks so much.

    Are you running the latest version of Disk Speed Test? Prior versions don't support the 2016/2017 MacBook Pros properly. – grg Jul 11 '17 at 13:16
  • The 10 Bit YUV 4:2:2 2160 with 30 is really slow. Me on my bike (no pedelec) I have a 3 min average of ~37 (street, sunny day). – klanomath Jul 11 '17 at 13:39
  • @grgarside I have downloaded newest version from Mac App Store. It's version is 3.1. – Dang Nguyen Jul 11 '17 at 14:06
  • @klanomath So I wonder why? :( – Dang Nguyen Jul 11 '17 at 14:06
  • Maybe MBP nTB and MBP TB are different in SSD Speed? Your MBP has also TDP limitation at 15 watts vs. 28 W on MBP with TouchBar, and has one fan vs. two in MBP with TouchBar. – dmgl Aug 21 '17 at 8:19

Im also getting very slow speeds with my MacBook Pro 2015 SSD. It is most likely something wrong with the app, in the past I got much faster with the same app on a older version with the same Mac.

  • Thank for your answer. If that is application issue, I will change to another benchmark app. – Dang Nguyen Jul 13 '17 at 8:30
