    The 1TB SSD option for the rMBPs also achieve the same speeds, because the 1TB SSDs in the rMBPs are 4-lane PCIe SSDs. 512GB and smaller ones are two-lane.

    All the PCIe SSDs used in the nMP, regardless of capacity, are 4-lane ones.

    You are quite wrong.

    The PCIe SSD in the MacBook Pro with retina are all 4-lane PCIe. The MacBook Air version, however, are only 2-lane PCIe.

    Prove it.

    My proof is here: http://9to5mac.com/2013/11/04/lates...ing-ssd-performance-thanks-to-4-channel-pcie/


    At the lower half of the article, it says that the 15" has 4-lane PCIe, but I can confirm that the 1000MB/s speeds are not achievable on 512GB 15" rMBPs.

    Interesting. Is there any report showing the bto 1tb drive in the MacBook Pro achieves the same speeds as the nMP 1tb SSD? It seems odd that owc would proclaim anything special about the 1tb mac pro SSD if the bto 1tb does the same. 1.2GBsec

    If you take the SSD from the MacBook Pro with retina and place it inside the new Mac Pro, it will use 4 PCIe lanes. As have been shown.

    Well - colour me impressed then. The MacBook Pros with 1TB SSD's really are blazing fast machines. It's tempting for me to replace my 2009 Mac Pro with a top of the line rMBP.... though I think waiting for Broadwell and nVidia 800 series is my goal!

    Yeah sorry about that - I totally missed that reply with the link in it as I was slowly typing away at my reply on my phone :)

    I would like to see some 4K random IOP numbers before people should be impressed.

    Did anyone ever try this out? I'm considering of buying a MBP 2014 model and placing into it some sort of 1TB KPV1T00/0A3 or KPV1T00/0A4 SSD, which to my understanding are the models in the Mac Pro and/or in the 2015 MBP. Really interested in finding out if 1200mbps are possible in the 2014 MBP

    Wow, this is very interesting. I had no idea that the 1TB SSD was that much faster than the 512GB.
