A system like the new Mac Pro needs something special when it comes to storage, and Apple hasn't disappointed us. Rather than go for hard drives (HDDs) or solid state drives (SSDs), Apple has instead chosen next-generation PCIe flash storage, which is up to 2.5 times faster than the fastest SATA-based solid-state drive, and up to 10 times faster than a 7200-rpm SATA hard drive.
The PCIe storage offers up to 1,2GB/s reads, 1.0GB/s writes, and up to 1TB of storage.
This means that the new Mac Pro will have the fastest storage available to a desktop workstation.
