On Apple’s Fusion Drive
Interesting review of the new Fusion Drive over at CNET. It does improve performance, but you don’t have control over which files go to the SSD or slower, traditional hard drive, and there’s some funky behavior like files over 4 GB copying fast until that cap, and slowing down as the physical drive kicks in.
I think the biggest take away is that a full SSD would undoubtedly be faster. Then it just depends on if you can fit everything you need in a 256 GB SSD vs. the 1 TB Fusion Drive. And personally, I’m OK with waiting a bit until SSD prices drop a bit more and then self-installing at a later date.
Already have my eye on one of these things.
