Ever wonder what would happen if you take two extremely fast SSDs from OWC and put them in a striped RAID on a brand new MacBook Pro (using the optical drive for another SSD)? Well OWC wondered, and here’s the result:
Yow! With this setup, we averaged over 1000MB/s read speeds and write speeds that nearly hit 900MB/s. That completely blows the MacBook Pro with Retina Display out of the water!
By comparison they tested the single SSD at 500/475MB/s — that’s pretty much double the performance with a striped RAID. I can’t even think about how fast that would be without getting jealous.
