Best 1TB SSD ? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
MX200 uses Marvell's controller. And you can use Momentum Cache with it, RAM caching solution from Crucial.

EVO850 performing perfectly. Especially if you activate RAPID mode for one single particular drive. Then you get virtually instant effect on anything you do. I'm using RAPID mode on my gaming partition. Loading Europa Universalis 4 with its plethora of configuration files takes perhaps 10 seconds not a minute. Until today I never actually tested RAID capability of the EVOs, but I have 5 on order (one as spare or caching drive for drive pool) so I will soon compare SF with Samsung controller in RAID10 setup. Should be good. And Samsung also underlines RAID support so I'm all for it.
hmm, so if I will use this 1TB Evo 850 exclusively to install and run games - I should enable RAPID mode on it ? it'll become faster ?


I assume its enabled via special Samsung SSD software (whats it called ?) ? do I need to keep the software in Windows autorun after for RAPID On setting to keep active after a restart ? Or you can enable it once and then uninstall the software and itll keep working ?

@ChevChelios  The Samsung Drive management software is called Magician and once you enable RAPID, you will be required to reboot to finish the process.  No need to do anything else because Magician will autorun itself automatically every time you boot.  There are other things in there you can tweak that are generally well known SSD enhancements, as well as run a performance benchmark to compare to before RAPID is enabled.  It will show you crazy fast numbers because you are basically benching your RAM at that point.

 

I running an 850 PRO on this machine I type from and I don't use RAPID because I don't trust it.  If you don't have a good UPS system in place you run the risk of loosing important data should you have a power failure.  Besides, its fast enough on its own.

 

I have 1TB 850 EVO, PRO, 1TB & 500GB Crucial MX200, BX200 and Sandisk Extreme PROs in 480 and 960GB models.  Also have the Sandisk Ultra II's and those, along with the Crucial BX200, I can't recommend because of the TLC factor/slowness. 

 

The MX200 is a good buy for an above average drive right now and I just picked one up for the wife since they're on sale on the egg. I just checked the 1TB MX200 and they list at $289 compared to the $279 I just paid, and the 500TB is $150, which is a great price IMHO.

 

The 850 EVO is good in my laptop an probably a little faster than the MX200 but your mileage may vary depending on chipset and if you RAID. RAPID would also be safer on a laptop because of its built in battery.

 

For speed, I think the 850 PRO is really on par with the Extreme PRO, or vice-versa.  With the former you get built in encryption, which I recommend for laptops, and the latter you get a much cheaper price.  You can pick up an Extreme Pro 960GB for $348 on the egg right now, which is a steal in my book for what you are getting.  Get em while they're hot, folks!

When you activate RAPID mode in a Magician ordinary SSD becomes 2 times as fast as hyped NVMe. All because it's accelerated with RAM. I wouldn't use RAPID for OS as it's not super safe, potentially there is a risk with non-ECC memory. But for games hell yeah!



This picture I uploaded once already on OCN. Shallow QD=4 which is maximum while loading and playing games. I think it's pretty self-explanatory. All you need is a lot of RAM, but today systems with 16GB or more are common occurrence. Background process is not at all memory intensive, but RAM must be available when needed. I explained this on other forum that for example - very file intensive (literally thousand of configuration files, textures, maps, etc) EU4 loads in fraction of the time.

850 Evo, though If you can get your hands on Muskin Reactor 1TB get that.

So we have a few great ones :

Samsung 850 EVO 1TB
Mushkin Reactor 1TB
Crucial MX200 1TB

And basically either one of these is a great choice? I will still recommend EVO 850 though.

Yes, all will perform within marginal of each other. Get the one that's cheapest & call it a day. All are proven to be reliable
