    Samsung 840 Pro - 512GB


    New Samsung 840 Pro 512GB, Rapid Mode On, OS Optimized for High Performance
    Laptop - Samsung NP520U4C-A01UB, Core I5 Gen 3 Processor (2.5 GHz), 8GB Ram, Windows 8.1 Pro Update1

    See my post here, Power plan settings keeps on reverting back after restart, that shows the difference when the OS isn't optimized and how a simple setting in the Samsung Settings app can affect SSD performance.

    Hi
    Just got my first SSD. I've ran some Performance Benchmark tests and I'd like to know if that's what they should be or not.

    Aspire V-561G_0776_V2.14
    CPU: Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4200U CPU @ 1.60GHz, 2301 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
    HDD: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB SSD
    RAM: 8GB
    Grafic : AMD Radeon R7 M265

    Why is the Random Read/Write so "far" from the stated benchmark numbers (97000\66000) ?

    Enable Rapid Mode. Also check OS optimization. Mine is set to maximum capacity.

    Is there a big "gain" enabling Rapid Mode ?
    Is there any "downside" ? (I have 8GB RAM) ?

    I only have 8GB in my laptop. I haven't had any issues with it. However, to see the benchmark numbers you asked about, you need Rapid mode enabled. Now, in real life, it may not be worth it. It does eat up some ram and there is a potential for data corruption. You might find the following link interesting.

    Understandable. My experience so far has been positive. I have the drive in my laptop, so losing power shouldn't be a huge issue - I have the battery to back me up As for RAM consumption, for me it has not been an issue. I use my laptop primarily for work and I have many applications open during the day.

    I've played with turning Rapid Mode on and off and from a "feel" perspective, I'm not sure if I really notice a difference. The only difference I do "see" is with the benchmark numbers.

    The following is also a good link, from AnandTech
