    I'm pretty surprised by the SSD speed of the new iMac, my model is the 2015 i7 32gb 2133mhz ram and 256 SSD, just...wow! It should be an mSata drive, right?!

    4-lane PCIe, actually. Much faster than what SATA 3 is capable of. And twice as fast as the SSD in my previous-gen 5K (although it's still no slouch).

    Yup, PCIe 2.0. Here's my 2015 iMac 482 fusion drive speed, it's pretty fast too:

    Wait, has Apple offer 2133mhz DDR3/4 yet? I don't think so. The 2015 model should come with 1866mhz PC314900 SO-DIMMs.

    EDIT: Ok, I just found out DDR3 2133mhz is actually compatible. Alright.
