According to iFixit the SSD used in the new 13 inch version of Apple’s MacBook Air is twice as fast as the model used in the 11 inch notebook.
The SSD in the 11 inch model comes with average write speeds of 315 MB/s and average read speeds of 668 MB/s, where as the 13 model’s SSD has write speed of 629.9 MB/s and read speeds of 1285.4 MB/s.
The 13 inch model apparently uses a Samsung SSD and Samsung controller where as the 11 inch model uses a SanDisk SSD and Marvel Controller.
When Apple announced the new MacBook Airs at their Spring Forward press event earlier in the week, there was not mention that the Solid State Drives in the new 13 inch MacBook Air had been updated.
