I have 2 apple machines:
A) mac mini 2020
B) macbook pro late 2019
The speed of the hard drives on the mac mini and macbook pro is very fast, after doing tests I get:
(I'm using blackmagic speed test software)
HD speed on machine A and B over 1200 Mbyte / s write speed and over 2500 Mbyte / s read speed.
I connected the 2 computers via thunderbolt 3 (intel certified cable).
I set the priority order under network preferences: I put on top " thunderbolt bridge'
I did several tests transferring files between machines A to B and B to A.
My average speed is around 200 Mbyte /s max speed is around 350 Mbyte a second.
Why is so slow ?
The thunderbolt 3 connection cannot be the bottleneck here.
(It can go up to 40 Gbit/s)
40Gbit/sec = 5000Mbyte/s !
I should be able to go close to the speed of my HD right?
(ok may a bit slower) but not 3-4 times Slower ?
I'm expecting to go at least at 1000Mbyte /s (8Gbit/s)
Please can someone from apple help me out?
I did call apple support 3 times!
I didn't get a clear answer.
No one could explain why I'm getting this slow speed trasfer.
