apple website says 2012 MacBook Air SSD is "twice as fast" as the 2011 one


I'm just wondering is this the case with the MacBook Pro? Is the 2012 SSD optional feature on the 13" Pro upgraded in the same way as the Air or does the Pro just use the same SSD as 2011 model


idk if this even matters was just wondering

    I don't see how they can claim that the SSD is twice as fast unless they were using SATA II in 6.0 Gbps Serial ATA connections? It does hold twice the memory... but they both have SATA III controllers... surely they weren't using 3.0 Gbps flash storage devices?


    I don't know - maybe they were...

    The Mid 2012 model uses a 6 Gb/s SATA Revision 3 SSD vs. 3 Gb/s SATA Revision 2 SSD in the 2011 machines. The also use SandForce controllers.
