Maxed-Out Performance

 

This testing is just to see what the drive is capable of in an FOB (fresh out of box) state under optimal conditions. We are utilizing Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit for this testing.

That is a lab record for SATA based 4K write performance.

 

 

RAPID

 

We tested our 850 EVO M.2 with Samsung's latest iteration of their RAPID caching software.
