I have recently taken on a Mac Studio M1 Max. Previously I was using (still do) a Intel 27" iMac. Mac Studio has been nice, but I have noticed that reading from the Pegasus 32 R4 (I have Seagate 8TB IronWolf VN004's in it) has taken some time to get files to appear in Finder.
This has lead me down a long road testing read and write speeds on this and other devices. Trying to get an idea of what others have experienced or have seen.
In Short, The Pegasus 32 averages the image below (Intel Mac, Mac Studio and M1 Mini). Is this similar to what others are seeing?
I am finding the speeds to be very slow, especially in Mac OS Ventura. Just makes saving files or seaching brutal at times. I have tired to bounce back to Monterey on the Intel system and notice some better performance, but overall the speeds (MB/s) are similar.
I have also tested a Pegasus2 R6, this system running TB2 has over all better numbers in the sequential are by 150MB/s - 250MB/s read and write vs the Pegasus32 on TB3. This really isnt making much sense.
EDIT: Forgot to mention running RAID 5
