    Has anyone with a 2016 MacBook Pro 15" benchmarked their SSD? Using BlackMagic I get 2200 read and 1900 write. That's lower than I expected, consider Apple says up to 3100 read. I have a 2TB SSD. I'm wondering what other people's results are.

    Unless they've updated it then it maxes out around 2000. Also if it is a new machine it may be spotlight indexing which impacts the results. Finally so w3hat its still ridiculously fast and an up to 3100 means its not always running at that speed and black magic disk test is just a snap shot of current performance.

    I wasn't talking about you updating I was talking black magic speed test, last I heard it couldn't read anything faster than around 2000mb/s anyway. also if you have background processes running etc this can impact the result. In short you are getting the results I would expect using that software on your machine.

    You are also worrying about nothing your computer has some of the fastest SSD's available in a consumer product and unless there is a clear issue with speed I can't see what you are testing it for.

    BlackMagic was updated to 3.1 on May 17th, to "Improve support for faster disks." Not sure how fast it now supports.

    What size is your SSD?

    I knew what you meant, and I'm not worried. I'm curious what other people are getting...

    Hmmmm. We need a larger sample of results to compare. Your writes shouldn't be that slow. I wonder if Apple is using more than one SSD manufacturer like in the past performance world vary based on that. Samsung always had better performance.

    Perhaps your system is still indexing... try it again after you system has been running for a few hours straight. No screen is perfect. I'm happy with mine, especially after calibration.

    I guess that's the performance under BlackMagic. How is the new screen?

    That's crazy. You should have tried to calibrate your screen first before sending it back. No screen will be 100% perfect, but I guess we all have different standards. I do think Apple should calibrate every MacBook Pro screen before it's shipped. Especially at these price points. I think the issues you were having were related to the anti-reflective coatings and light reflection. Good Luck on your next one.
