About Fusion Drives and Optane

Apple never went beyond 3TB on those drives. The 1TB Fusion had a 32GB SSD but the 2TB/3TB Fusion had 128GB SSD? It's what I recall.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fusion_Drive

Anyway it may be a moot point now as Apple is going all SSD nowadays. There are 2TB SSDs but it is stll expensive.

There were also hybrid drives like Seagate's Momentus HD which was different from the Fusion Drives. Some Seagate HDs ship with Optane but I cannot tell the storage capacity for Optane in Seagate's drives.

Never buy version 1.0 of anything.
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
