When it comes to SSD’s, as with many things in life, generally the bigger and faster the technology the more expensive it is.
Higher-end, more expensive SSD’s utilising newer technology run at up to 3000MB/s, whilst the more budget-friendly SSD’s run at up to 1800MB/s.
Whilst the MacBook Air Late 2015 - 2017** models are able to take advantage of slightly higher speeds than previous MacBook Air models, thanks to an upgrade from PCIe 2.0 x 2 to PCIe 2.0 x 4, the internal wiring still limits the installed SSD’s speed to a max of 1500 -1800MB/s……….
