The performance that these machines will offer will be unlike anything you have ever seen before in a MacBook Pro. The new and improved storage that is found inside their premium aluminum chassis is the reason behind its responsiveness. Benchmarks were carried out on the all-new MacBook Pro 2018.

The MacBook Pro was able to reach an average write speed of 2682MB/s using the BlackMagic Disk Speed test for MacOS. Those speeds are absolutely phenomenal, it only means that the applications that are installed on the MacBook Pro will be able start instantly. Ultrabooks that feature an M.2 SSD slot often have third-party SSDs like the Samsung 970 EVO installed that support the NVMe standard which makes the notebook more responsive.

The Dell XPS 13 equipped with a Core i7 processor was the second-fastest notebook in the benchmark, but it only managed to reach write speeds of 399.4MB/s. Utilizing the SATA III interface instead of the PCIe NVMe standard that expensive notebooks have, the notebook has a regular SSD.
