    Curious of apples internal ssd implementation? Any speed tests from early buyers?

    Theres already a few tests on the various threads. Standard NVMe speeds. I'll link if I come across one.

    According to some test, it should be around 2800MB/s in both writing and read.

    From the looks of it, should be similar to the iMac Pro. The iFixIt teardown showed a glimpse and it appears to be the same design. Coupled with the buss and RAM speeds, it should be quite impressive once people get around to Geekbenching it.

    There isn't one, there's a page full of rubbish. It's being discussed in this thread: https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/im-very-happy-with-my-new-2018-mini-are-others-as-well.2153434/

    Which contains this to-the-point post among others:
    '
    I saw the iFixit article this morning after I did my own upgrade. Their article is junk, completely wrong. It's a mix of 2014 Mini, 2018 mini and Mac Book Pro. They even said they didn't actually HAVE a 2018 Mini. They pulled stuff from their other articles and cut and pasted the article together without even having the 2018 Mini. They even said they "borrowed" some of the pictures from this forum.

    To be fair to iFixIt, iFixIt didn't write it, for one thing. The person that did has since fixed all the pictures. And they never claimed it was a teardown to start with, simply a guide on how to upgrade the RAM.

    Good information. To achieve ~2800 externally would I need nvme ssd in a tb3 enclosure? May consider smaller internal drive for os and rest external.

    To be fair to iFixit, iFixit published it. As far as I know, publishers decide what to publish and are responsible for what they publish.

    This was disgraceful, and had no apparent purpose other than to sucker people into going to their site and taking the drivel that they published seriously.

    Using an external TB3 nvme housing I got around 2400 write and read (1TB nvme SSD WD Black) and TRIM.

    Define "published it". As far as I can tell, literally anybody can write a guide for their site, and iFixIt, the company, doesn't review them prior to being available to the public. Following your logic, MacRumors published your post and therefore to the extent that it's wrong, should be ridiculed simply because they allow people to post on these forums.
