Testing transfers involve two things.. The onboard cache.. Which most people think is the ssd speed, the best thing to do is get a HUGE file, maybe 100gb, open task man and check that free is around 0, and that's your speed.. Otherwise your just testing ram/cache and drive.. Please correct me if I'm wrong smile.gif

Old dos systems I think reserved memory for the file allocation table to sit so, when listing files, creating table entrys got faster, but when it came to data there wasn't any sort of caching. I remember trying to install windows 95 with it turned off.. Took so long.

My samsung ssd just got firmware bricked, any way to get the firmware back on it? Can't get it to work connected to any Sata ports direct to the motherboard but a USB controller gets me inside it. Idk how to go from there besides RMA and hoping that it takes more than 30 days so I get my money back and upgrade to a 500GB one.

so you can't add the firmware thru usb?
then it just pays to RMA and upgrade, lol I'd wish I was that lucky I got a 256gb but it was on-sale

I believe I'd have to do it through DOS but honestly I think I'll have it RMA'ed and wait. I sure as hell won't be getting the same so according to EU laws if I get a new one, the warranty starts from there if I get the money I purchase a better one. Win-win for me in all accounts.

If there was some level of certainty DOS would work, I would do it but I rather not mess with it not knowing how it will end up after DOS.

It could be the ability to disable CPU cache in BIOS to support some old DOS programs that not work on PC with level 1 cache. This option only available on first generation ATX computers to be compatible with old progs.

If anyone needs it, I wrote a program to encode/decode ".enc" files.
You can find it here:

So I'm just not stumbling upon these issues with the 840s. I have an 840 Pro and I tried running a few tests to match it again what others are getting in this thread, but I can't figure out why my reads and writes are so high. confused.gif Could it have anything to do with my drive being rather full?

looks like you have samsung RAPID mode on

mine, 850 EVO

SR=5111 SW=4339
RR=150457 RW=99333

so it looks like we're similar performance

Space magic !!!

In reality: turn RAPID off.
