When Apple announced Fusion Drive, we expected it to be quick. But TLDToday has performed some speed tests, comparing a new Mac Mini to its predecessor and the results are pretty amazing.
Despite the fact that the new Fusion Drive uses a 5400rpm hard disk as its bulk storage, it doesn’t seem to hold things back. Boot times are half what they used to be — perhaps not too surprising as the OS is almost certainly installed on the SSD — but copying files is just so. Much. Quicker.
