Anyone know if it is possible to increase the read/write buffer size of the Fusion drive technology?

    As we know there is a 4GB buffer for new reads/writes. As the apps I have never really exceed 60-70GB, so I'd like there to be a higher buffer for new reads/writes. Is it possible to adjust this buffer size to for example 10GB?

    You would have to find a hack, I think there are a few out there but I haven't seen anything I'd trust not to bugger up my mac.

    I figured as much. I wouldn't trust any untested hack either but perhaps someone out there would be nice enough to test it out on their old 2013 iMac :p. It's not a big deal for me at all, just surprised it has never been looked into.
