If you turn on CRAPID mode, you are not benchmarking your SSD anymore, you are benchmarking your RAM.
Translate that intro real world performance and it means absolutely nothing.
For example, test this.....
Copy a huge 10GB + video file or whatever large file you want from your C: partition to another partition on another disk......
you will notice that the Windows file copy progress finishes insanely fast.....the moment it finishes the copy, I want you to restart your system
then check that file you copied, it would be corrupt, reason is, yes the file copy progress finished fast, but it didn't finish really, all it was doing is copying the file from your SSD to the RAM Cache and not the actual 2nd SSD or HDD you were intending to copy to, then after it goes to your RAM Cache using CRAPID, it is supposed to copy from the RAM Cache onto the actual disk in the background which didn't happen in this test I did since I restart immediately after the fake file transfer progress was finished.
so it's just cheating + placebo effect
And after you read this, you will never enable RAPID again.....it will actually make your performance worse not betterA Closer look at the crappy CRAPID
