    Keep in mind, the benchmarks on Samsung magician run at a queue depth of 32. Unless you're using it on the server or extremely heavy file intensive video editing, normal users including gamers will be hard-pressed to exceed a queue depth of four.

    Fortunately for Samsung though , a TON of people really fall for those benchmark numbers and like to show off to others which i will never understand.

    If it's not increasing performance in real life which is NOTICEABLE when compared to not using it why even bother , seems like a big scam to me and i have an 850 Pro .

    After switching out a much slower SSD that gets much poorer benchmark #'s than the Samsung, i was very surprised to see that in real world computing , you can't tell a difference at all .

    I was expecting the Samsung to definitely have an edge in speed and overall performance but i saw none of it , benchmarks are superior on the Samsung but real life performance is the same .
    Agree (y), the only thing I care about is performance and I am satisfied now

    A little too technical for me to understand but i'm guessing it means under the vast majority of typical computing conditions you won't notice a performance gain .

    The one thing i have read about but i know it's nothing new is employing a ram disk which supposedly make a huge speed difference .

    I have no idea how ,why or even if it's worth it but it sounds good. Seems most do not use one these days however.

    Here is the best analogy I can come up with:


    Imagine a box full of marbles which you have to empty with your hands. If it's only you and the box has two openings then you can use both hands simultaneously to grab marbles. If you now put four holes in the box it would not speed you up anymore. If you had a friend using both his hands then the four holes would help. Similarly, most operations on the PC do not require more than "four holes= Queue depth of 4". Most Complex games do not even require that many. On the other hand, servers that are being accessed by many computers require many more "holes". The performance test on Samsung magician is the equivalent of measuring the speed of emptying the "box" using 32 holes. I hope that helps

    Excellent analogy man.
    Bravo!
