New MacBook Air hard drive shrinks SSD speed drops by 35%


According to the French media Consomac test, although the new MacBook Air is more affordable, it has quietly shrunk in the SSD solid state drive. The continuous read and write speeds of the 256 GB model are only 1.3 GB / s and 1.0 GB / s. Compared with last year’s 2.0 GB / s and 920 MB / s, writes increased slightly by 9%, but reads decreased significantly by 35%.

Last week, Apple launched two new notebooks, the new MacBook Air and the entry-level new MacBook Pro. The new MacBook Air incorporates the original color display technology, which automatically adjusts the white point value of the display according to the color temperature of the surrounding environment, bringing a more comfortable and natural display effect. The new MacBook Air notebooks are priced at 8899 yuan for 8GB / 128GB and 10399 yuan for 8GB / 256GB, which is 600 yuan and 700 yuan lower than the previous generation. College teachers and students, employees and parents can also enjoy educational discounts starting from 8099 yuan and receive Beats headphones, which has received a lot of attention for a while.

However, according to tests by the French media Consomac, although the new MacBook Air is more affordable, it has quietly shrunk in the SSD solid state drive. The continuous read and write speeds of the 256 GB model are only 1.3 GB / s and 1.0 GB / s. Compared with last year’s 2.0 GB / s and 920 MB / s, writes increased slightly by 9%, but reads decreased significantly by 35%. On the smaller 128GB model, the continuous read speed is also 1.3GB / s, and the continuous write is only 500MB / s. Zh

In other words, although the price is cheaper, the performance is actually reduced. In fact, Apple has always been very aggressive in solid state drives. From the first introduction of SSDs to MacBooks, to the popularity of PCIe NVMe SSDs, Apple has always been at the forefront. However, this “subtraction” on the MacBook Air is a bit ugly.
