2013 MacBook Air NGFF PCIe SSD Review (256GB) – Pre-Configured MBA Doesn’t Set The ‘PC’ Performance Bar
If you’ve been hanging around TSSDR or Technology X lately, you will have noticed that Apple shipped us a brand smacking new MBA
, complete with a Samsung 256GB NGFF PCIe SSD that spits out performance as high as 825MB/s.
Since our initial MBA reports, we have had the opportunity to do what we do best and install Windows 7 on the MBA, followed by complete testing of the new Samsung PCIe SSD in a Windows environment.
To be frank, our PC benchmarking of this SSD resulted in some of the worst SSD performance we have seen to date and we don’t believe this to be the fault of the Samsung PCIe SSD. While testing in Windows 7, performance had even increased from 794MB/s to 824MB/s and, on the outset, this machine appears to the screaming thunder of storage performance.
