A Closer Look at Samsung RAPID

With two benchmarks down and RAPID seemingly increasing performance exponentially.  I wanted to see how it may affect various aspects of real world computing.  Although hot data isn’t directly related to Windows boot, I wanted to see how RAPID would affect Windows boot times.  Again, we are using Windows 8.1 and our trusty, less than impressive, laptop.  As this is an “every day use” system, there are a number of items to start at boot.  These range from CrashPlan and Acronis TrueImage to BitDefender, Teamviewer, Chrome, Skype, and much more.

The times below are in seconds…

Boot timesAverage Boot Time
RAPID42.54
Normal41.56

Based on the benchmarking results above, it does not look as though RAPID has any affect on Windows boot time.

Does Samsung's high end SSD have what it takes to unseat our current SSD choice, the OCZ Vector?
