    Brought my RAM up to 1600Mhz and did a RAMdisk.

    ^ Ok... I think you embedded the wrong image?

    No, I didn't. What makes you think that?

    It's DDR RAM, remember? Double Data Rate? Which means the 800Mhz is doubled to 1600Mhz.

    The fact that your post looks like this to me:

    If it's a joke, I don't get it, but it doesn't look like a RAM disk benchmark to me! :p

    Okay now THAT is weird. Shows the correct pictures for me and Travis hasn't edited his post since.

    Still shows weird pic for me. Tried Chrome and IE - same result.

    The other embedded images in this thread and on this forum show correctly.

    I did a scan with Trend last night. It removed a cookie and now the image is showing up correctly. I'll add the scores to the leaderboard today. Thanks for the submission. :good:

    Leaderboard updated.

    Here's my new Samsung 850 EVO 250GB in my desktop (replacing my OCZ Vertex 4 128GB which is going into my brother's new PC):

    [​IMG]

    I currently own an 840 EVO, an 850 EVO and an 850 Pro (all 250GB) and they are all very good drives and all perform about the same as can be seen from the leaderboard. :good:


    Here's the 64GB SSD in my Surface Pro. Impressive read speeds but the writes are a little disappointing. I guess the m4 SSDs are showing their age now (but my mum still has a Crucial m4 128GB in her desktop which is running strong though! :good:)

    Brand new Samsung 850 EVO 500GB in Dad's machine - that's the third 850 we have in the house and the fourth Samsung SSD. :good:

    [​IMG]


    Has anybody got a Samsung 830 that they can bench? I see we have a lot of scores for 840s and 850s but no 830 scores. I'm interested to see what the speed difference is! :)

    Another new score from me, this time a Kingston SSDNow v300 480GB on SATA 6Gbps in a Dell Vostro laptop (fresh install of the Dell Windows 7 Pro SP1 x64 on here).

    Read speed is good but the write speed is a little disappointing, but for a 'cheaper' SSD it's not too bad I guess. :)

    We built a VMware test server. Before we installed esxi on it we decided to run a few benches for fun :)

    We didn't have the right cables for the LSI RAID card that were are using now, so I wanted to test the performance of the onboard RAID card with 4 850 Pro SSDs. A little disappointing when you consider what should be possible with a 4 SSD RAID 0.

    In case anyone is wondering I used the default 32k stripe size.

    First time working with DDR4/Quad Channel. Wow.

    Awesome scores thanks! Board updated! :good:

    I've also a little note about RAID-0 setups to the OP since this is the first score with a RAID-0 configuration with more than 2 drives:


    Note about RAID-0 setups

    Unless otherwise stated when posting your score, I will assume that you are using two drives in your RAID-0 configuration. The same is reflected in the leaderboards.

    If you've already posted a score from a RAID-0 configuration that has more than two drives in the array, please let me know so that your leaderboard entry can be amended.

    Got the 850 PRO 256gb in today and really impressed with it.
    Far faster than my old hyper x 3k 120gb and much more needed space :). Anyway here are some benchmarks
    from the Samsung 850 pro 256gb and I thought id see how fast a RAM disk i could get and have a play around with that aswell.

    Samsung non rapid mode.

    Nice scores! Faster than the 850 Pro I benched back in November. Congrats on having the fastest single drive in reading AND writing as well as the fastest RAM disk for reading! :good:

    Leaderboard updated with Samsung dominating both the read and write boards for HDDs/SSDs and G.Skill dominating the boards for RAM disks! :D

    Thanks,I was quite surprised at the scores actually,Considering salvage-this 4x Samsung 850 Pro 250GB (RAID-0) you don't get much additional speed for an extra 2x SSDs in the Array.

    Either way,Samsung have done us good on these SSDs,Im looking forward to what future PCI-e based SSD drives come out (hopefully samsung will make some)

    I get the feeling that it was bottlenecked by the onboard RAID for the motherboard. I would love to test that setup again with a proper controller.

    Great scores Shane!

    Any chance on RAMdisk cheats/hax by upping the amount of threads ? :p
