Bare Feats publishes benchmarks for the new MacBooks Pro's 512GB SSDs

Just over a week ago, Apple launched a new line of MacBooks Pro with SSD storage options of up to 512GB. We already know that they would be much faster than conventional hard drives (even for the $ 1,300 you pay for the upgrade), but not exactly how much.

The website Bare Feats posted this week benchmarks of the 512GB SSDs used by Apple in the new MBPs. Although it is clear that they leave hard drives in the dust (even those at 7,200 RPM), the performance graphics also show that other models of SSDs can be found much faster.

The red bars represent the best results:

A note related to these tests: all other SSDs have half the capacity of Apple, or even less. This difference has to be considered, but I can't say exactly with what weight.
