Any ideas when RAPID becomes available for the 840 Pro?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I know Samsung's caching technology (RAPID) is available now for the EVO series; it is supposed to become available on the 840 Pro series "soon," but the most recent Magician 4.2 doesn't have it available.

Any ideas for when it might be for the 840 Pro series?

O,you dont have to wait Samsung to enable RAPID for 840 PRO.RAPID is any way just a bad copy of other great caching software like Superspeed SuperCache or PRIMOCache.
Hardware manufacturer never new how to make good software,latency in the sky.
In fact i would forbid them by the law to make software's for their products.

No latency problems with Rapid here at all Igor, very fast.

+1 for alternatives, I personally use fancycache and love it.

And the softbloatware on my sibling's Samsung ultrabook is some of the worst I've ever seen. Rapid might be OK, but personally, I won't touch Samsung software with a 20 foot pole.

Yes,BUT Gigabyte is the no.1 in making instability bloatware.

"Unfortunately, we didn't have any luck getting RAPID to improve load times in our usual gaming tests. The caching scheme had virtually no impact on the 840 EVO's Duke Nukem Forever and Portal 2 load times even after we ran our tests five times in a row. Frustrated, we fired up the CrystalDiskMark benchmark that Samsung used to demonstrate RAPID caching at its Global SSD Summit in Seoul, Korea last week."
Have Samsung made this software just to show us CDM results?
Man,i like Samsungs SSD,and other SSD manufacturers can eat Samsung dust,but if they bought Nvelo that doesn't mean they need to give us immediately caching software.
I say:Samsung please stick to SSDs production you do that best in universe.

Hmm interesting. Will be interested to try this when it comes out on the 840 Pro (any ideas when that might be)?


Also, isn't Samsung the company that was programming their smartphones to overclock only for benchmarking? Maybe something similar is happening here.
