Krakin's Gaming PC: New MSI 980 Ti


Recommended Posts

So I was talking with Audiofanaticz and Steve the other night about our SSD's, I thought I had gotten mine as fast as it was going to get. Then the next day Steve said something about a Rapid setting for the 840's. I was messing around with it again and noticed the rapid setting for the first time.

I can't believe the benchmark results from it!

I was in the lower third of all of these tests before I enabled rapid mode.

Krakin, are you some sort of mad scientist?

I would have replied earlier, but I was measuring the output of my amp with a yardstick . . .

What you hear is not the air pressure variation in itself

but what has drawn your attention

in the two streams of superimposed air pressure variations at your eardrums

An acoustic event has dimensions of Time, Tone, Loudness and Space

Everyone learns to render the 3-dimensional localization of sound based on the individual shape of their ears,

thus no formula can achieve a definite effect for every listener.

I bent time and space to achieve what I achieved.

I'll rerun the test when I get home to get a real result, lol.

how do you like the evo? I have the Samsung PRO SSD for my laptop and the thing is fast!!! but my only concern with the evo is the life of it since specs are very similiar.. but i guess tech will advance bnefore you wear it out. lol. looks good man!! cant beatr the lower cost of the evo for the performance you get

So far I have never been anything but amazed by the performance of the SSD, after I turned on the rapid mode it just got even better (even with my clearly unrealistic speeds).

My loading times on Borderlands 2 are <4 seconds for pretty much any load.

BF4 I get in before pretty much anyone else does, so you get the advantage there, haha.

I haven't had a single problem with it at all.

I ran another test and got almost the exact same results.

What are some good drive benchmarks?

Doesnt SATA III max out at 580ish MB/sec?

Samsung's RAPID technology uses either up to 25% or 1GB of system RAM (whichever is lower) to cache for the SSD, similar to how you can use an SSD to cache for an HDD on newer Intel chipsets. For short tests like these the numbers are greatly inflated due to the massive speed difference between SATA storage and the system DRAM cache. The first 1GB of any drive speed test on a Samsung SSD running RAPID is effectively a DRAM speed test. The upside is greatly increased read and write speeds for files under a certain size that are cached by the software. The downside is that if power is lost any data that was cached in DRAM but wasn't committed to the drive is lost and you risk data corruption. This is likely why it is toggled off by default.

The 840 EVO also has a small amount of NAND (flash memory) running in SLC mode which it uses as a "TurboWrite buffer". When writing data to the drive it writes to the SLC "buffer" section first and then once the write operation completes it moves that data from the SLC buffer to the normal, slower TLC NAND . The SLC NAND is much faster and if a write operation doesn't fill the SLC section then you basically get the speed of SLC NAND when writing to the drive. The downside here is that if the write operation is larger than the size of the SLC buffer then you will fill the buffer and start writing directly to the slower TLC NAND which will result in a speed drop until the write is complete and the contents of the buffer can be moved. This isn't as big of an issue given that TLC NAND is the type of NAND used in the original 840 and is still very fast. The SLC buffer is also fairly large and is rarely filled in a single write operation unless you're working with very large files.

The 840 EVO is a fast drive not due to a faster controller or faster flash memory but due to a few intelligent data management tricks. Are they legitimate? For most end-user cases, absolutely. The speed increase is clear in tests and is a tangible benefit for users who mostly deal with files that work within the file size limitations or use it as an OS and programs drive. If a user plans to put a lot of data on it, will hit their drive with a ton of writes, large files, and NEEDS data security, then that user is better served by the 840 Pro or possibly other manufacturers' offerings.

wtf is lolcats?

I'd def get a fat hooker if i had to resort to that kinda thing. I feel like they'd be grateful and work harder. Also its more bang for my buck, more real estate for my dollar if you catch my drift. its like the Costco of streetwalkers.

I was hoping for 150 :(.

I was hoping she would let me put it in her butt
