    Hey, just a dump of benchmarks. Sorry that the images are large, first retina macbook I've owned so didn't realise the screenshots would be that size :eek:.

    Hope these are useful to someone.

    The read is speed is double previous gen. The write speed is the same. But unless you transfer large video files etc you won't know a difference. Opening notes etc will be the same speed.

    Thanks for the post.

    What is the ssd size? In previous gen the 128gb one was noticeably slower.

    According to cinebench r15.. Cpu is approx 11% (282 vs 314) faster and gpu approx 28% (22.2fps vs 28.5) faster than the previous entry 2.6ghz model.

    SSD size is 128gb, went for the base model since my storage needs are minimal.

    My early-2015 13" rMBP (i7/16/512) clocks in with Geekbench at about 7700-7800, plus reads/writes of around 1200-1300MB/s.

    My previous late-2013 13" rMBP (i7/16/512) came it at GB3 7100 and r/w at 720MB/s.

    The reason is because Apple finally switched to 4-lane PCIe SSDs across all models. As a comparison, my 15" (late-2013 2.6/16/1TB/750M) with a 4-lane PCIe SSD clocks in at around 1000MB/s as well.

    slow write speed of 128G

    I have the 2015 rMBP 13" with 512GB flash. The lower capacity 128G flash tends to have a slower write speed. Here's what I get:

    AJA System Test at 16GB Test Size, 4K video frame size
    1391 MB/s READ, 1504MB/s WRITE

    Thanks for posting. Really useful and exactly what I have been looking for.

    Have been sitting on the fence for a while to upgrade my MBA 2011 13" to a rMBP 13". Seems with your results I will get around 6x graphics performance and 1,8x cpu power.

    The cpu I don't care too much about, but I really want some better graphics to be able to play some casual games without lag etc.

    Here's the results on my MBA 2011 13" i5 1,7 GHz, intel HD 3000, 4GB ram
