    Samsung 840 evo 240gb with weird high benchmark


    Just upgraded my laptop to ssd, done loads of searching on here for optimal settings and used samsung magican to help me out.

    as it is quite a new laptop I set the hdd back to factory and then cloned on to the ssd.

    The laptop runs very fast now, but its giving me very high benchmarks! are these normal

    Yes you have rapid mode enabled. Give your SSD a few days and you'll find its even faster. These SSD are very fast the most noticeable upgrade that has come a long in a very long time and these 850 are the best of the bunch for sure.

    I have both 840 pro and 850 pro they are both very fast and rapid mode really makes a difference.

Not just clock speed but...
