an hour or two ago i copied a 60 GB 7z archive from an external drive to an internal SATA SSD. then just now i unzipped the archive onto an nvme SSD. and for the first 2/3 of the process it was going at about 400-500 MB/s, but then, for like the last 15 or so GB of the file, it went up to about 1000-2000 MB/s!!!! because that part was still in the cache!!!!! wow!!!!!!! computers actually work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
