    Weird SSD numbers

    Hey !

    Just installed my Samsung 850 Pro 512GB so I really wanted to test it out. Installed Samsung Magician and Crystal Mark to bench the drive.

    This is the first test run :

    Not bad at all, pretty little numbers :) Then I went in Samsung magician and I optimized the drive.
    - Over Provisioning
    - Rapid mode

    Now.... Look at these numbers, this can't be right at all. You think maybe it's doing the test on the Windows virtual memory ??

    Yes, when you set up rapid mode, it tests the ram disk and not the SSD itself. Those are about the expected numbers.

    Haaaaaaaaaaa I see !

    Is it a good thing to keep it on or should I take rapid mode off ??

    My personal opinion, I don't leave it on. It produces good numbers in a benchmark, but I see no difference in actual usage. Try it and see how it does for you.
