Announced a week ago, the new MacBooks Air they may have been $ 100 cheaper in the United States ($ 700, here in Brazil), but there is a small but Apple preferred to omit the release.
As found by the site francs Consomac (Google Translate), the SSD of the incoming version of the new MacBook Air slower than the previous one.
In the 256GB version, they calculated using the Blackmagic Disk Speed ??Test utility a performance of 1GB / s for recording it's from 1.3GB / s for reading, against 920MB / s and 2GB / s from the previous generation, respectively. There was a slight gain in write speed, but a nice drop in read speed.
It is well known that the higher the capacity of the SSD, the better its performance. As a result, the new 128GB storage MacBook Air fared even worse in the test: 500MB / s for recording and 1.3GB / s for reading. But this, it is worth noting, also happened in version 2018.
The good news is that even these rates are still very good for the average use of a MacBook Air. The vast majority of consumers of this machine will not notice any difference in performance based on these numbers.
