macOS' APFS File-System Performing Much Better Than The Dated HFS+
I'm still running the fresh Linux benchmarks from this Haswell era MacBook Air, but the file-system results are interesting in their own right. With there being many file-system geeks in the forums, I am posting the disk benchmark numbers for now...
Tests were done with the Phoronix Test Suite on macOS.
SQLite is a heck of a lot faster.
BlogBench reads are faster.
The BlogBench write numbers are faster. Some have complained of slowdowns with APFS, but for the most part my benchmark numbers are showing faster results.
We'll see how these numbers compare to Linux shortly.
