OWC Tests Show 1TB SSD in 2015 15” rMBP Outperforms 256GB Model

Last week, we showed you our test results for the new faster PCIe-based flash storage in Apple’s 2015 15” MacBook Pro with Retina display.

Today, we got our hands on a unit configured with a 1TB SSD and our results were even faster than the 256GB model that we tested.

Check out below for the results of our latest testing. The unit tested is a 2.8GHz Quad Core i7 model with 16GB memory and a 1TB SSD. And as with the model we tested last week, this 15” rMBP uses a Samsung SSD and does not use the NVM Express SSD protocol.

  • Agree with Norbi. Have now been waiting for a year. Macbook pro 11,2 ignored ?!What value are these tests to us !!No release date in sight!

  • Hi. I have a Mid 2014 15″ MacBook Pro. It is possible to use this new SSD in my Macbook Pro. Has OWC tested that?


    • Hello Daniel,

      At this time, OWC has not tested if the new SSD will work in the 2014 MacBook Pros. To keep informed of any new releases, please make sure to keep up to date on our blog and sign up for our newsletter!

      • And… any release date? All these stunningly impressive tests are a huge tease when there are no products to buy.

      • Even better, it would be great if you could come up with a 2TB option to upgrade the 1TB 2014! STOP teasing us and give us something we can buy! :-)
