They didn't get more RAM, but they did get this

This has been around for a long time, and Apple isn't the only one doing this, but we've discovered the same thing multiple times with Microsoft's Surface Laptop series.

More than 33 percent faster reading speed

It's a strange phenomenon, because it's not like any of the companies that make customers realize it so clearly – at least we've never seen PR material where models with less storage space clearly have weaker SSD performance, but for legal reasons it has to be listed somewhere. what. The reason is that these devices have one NAND chip instead of two, and if there were two there would be no one to collaborate with to improve performance – there are two of them this year.

The fact that you don't get 16GB of RAM with the cheaper model hasn't changed with the MacBook Air M3 series, it's been front-page material for a long time, but what's best is precisely the improved NVMe performance.

In the test from Max Tech, he tested the MacBook Air with the M2 against the new M3 model, both with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage — the clear spiel of the numbers reads like this:

  • MacBook Air M2 write speed: 1584MB/s
  • MacBook Air M3 write speed: 2108MB/s
  • MacBook Air M2 Read Speed: 1576MB/s
  • MacBook Air M3 Read Speed: 2880MB/s

Here are our numbers from previous tests:

  • MacBook Pro M3 1TB: 3000MB/s write speed – 2900MB/s read speed
  • MacBook M1 Max 512GB: 4800MB/s write – 4800MB/s read
  • MacBook Air M2 512GB: Reading: 2699 – Writing: 2750
  • M2 MacBook Pro 256GB: Read: 1446 – Write: 1463
  • M1 MacBook Pro 512GB: Read: 2900 – Write: 2215
  • Dell XPS 15″ 9510: Reading: 6390 – Writing: 4880
  • MacBook Pro 14 (base model – 8 CPU cores and 14 cores): 4541 – 5149
