The fastest port on this machine seems to be the Thunderbolt 2 interface at 20Gbp/s. Are there any drives that would get anywhere near that?
It seems like the SSD in a 2015 MBP would be limited to about 2.2Gbps write speed so does it make sense to try to get anything faster than that?
Is a 3.1 USB thumb drive good enough or would a standard SATA III SSD drive work faster?
I just did a 150 GB Time Machine restore which took 9 hours. Is there a way to make it faster than that?
