    Hopefully it doesn't reduce the SSD performance, without activating the RAPID. Maybe next Magician updates will resolve this. Thanks guys!

    I have just started using it on my 1TB EVO SSD containing all my Hyper-V virtual machines(I needed more space for the VMs to grow and for checkpoints), as my system disk is a M.2 PCIe NVMe Samsung PM951(much faster than the 2.5" Samsung SSDs). RAPID has it's uses for memory caching(I have 32GB RAM for running a few machines at the same time, plus use XMP to overclock my RAM).
    With RAPID turned on I bet I have the fastest booting, MBAM and/or Defender scanning machines in the forums.

    Gee, thank you, I've updated it and seems the interface & AHCI problems are solved. But now the RAPID mode said "Not supported"? :)

    I am wondering: is this update necessary to actually use the drive in AHCI mode or only to fix the issue of magician falsely showing AHCI is not active? In other words. is this a necessary fix or just fixing "aesthetic issues" while the system performs properly either way?

    It may be worth mentioning:
    1. Magician 4.9xx will tell you that it is the latest version while version 5.xx is actually the latest one ready for download when you check for downloads at
    2. the consumer version at is for some reason called "Samsung Magician Software for Consumer SSD(3)"; that "(3)" has nothing to do with the software version
    3. the version 5 software is lacking many settings any features available in the 4.9xx versions (e.g. encryption info etc.)!
