    either way you look at it, it still has to be read from the ssd to be cached into ram, the bottleneck doesnt go away no matter what magic wand you wave at it.

    RAPID usage clarification

    I disagree completely, as an IT professional who has been using 840/850 evo's since their birth, i highly reccomend using the rapid mode feature. up to 4GB of RAM is taken and used as caching memory which,as it is RAM memory is significantly faster than any SSD or HDD caching. Boot times will be significantly reduced, browser navigation and caching will be immediately faster and overall there is a very noticable difference. I have never had a bad issue such as data loss with the rapid mode on. Samsung magician takes a snapshot before you enable it allowing you to revert if there are issues.
    Just an FYI from one Pro to another for the sake of clarity for everyone. Samsung's own website SSD white paper states - Quote "RAPID consumes at most 25% of the installed DRAM, up to a maximum of 1GB, but willscale down resource usage and eventually revert to a pass-through mode if theCPU core(s) or DRAM is occupied with other system tasks. (This technology is reallydesigned to make use of excess system resources)."
