I have a rMBP 15" ( mid 2012 ). It has a 768gb Samsung SSD drive. Will this drive work in the current rMBP ? A straight swap?

Cheers

:confused::)

Sorry I wasn't being clear…I meant my mid 2012 SSD will be ok to go in an early 2013 rMBP:D

Well I bought a 768ssd Samsung for my mid 2012 rMBP. Works fine. I want to move it to an early 2013 rMBP

Thanks - but when did the change from Sata to PCI-e happen…i.e. what is the latest date for a Sata rMBP?:)

It'll work. Both the mid-2012 and early-2013 models are still considered as 2012 MBPs because they use the Ivy Bridge chipset. And besides both use blade-SATA.

So far, only the late-2013 (Haswell) MBPs use the blade PCIe. Apple switched to PCIe because it's way faster than SATA.
