Find Out if 512GB SSD Fixes M2 MacBook Pro’s Slow Performance [VIDEO]

Earlier this week, it was uncovered in benchmarks that M2 MacBook Pro configurations with only 256GB of storage deliver up to 50% slower read and 30% slower write speeds than predecessors with the same amount of SSD storage.


Today, YouTube channel Max Tech has published a new video that explores whether a 512GB SSD fixes the M2 MacBook Pro’s slower performance or not.

“Since many people didn’t believe that the 256GB Base SSD was ruining the performance of Apple’s M2 chip, we bought the 8GB RAM/512GB SSD model to PROVE that it shouldn’t exist!”

Earlier today, iFixit published their teardown of the new M2 MacBook Pro, in which they confirmed the design of the SSD, which has led to slower SSD benchmark performance on the 256GB M2 MacBook Pro compared to the 256GB M1 MacBook Pro.
