Hi chaps. I use a 512gb Samsung EVO SSD which is all well and good. The Samsung Magician software has an 'overdrive' feature which up until this point would (utilising a little bit of ram and a few megabytes of space) significantly improve performance (roughly 2x) - so standard top tier (non-PCI-E) SSD speeds are around the 500mb/s mark for sequential read and write - this became roughly 1000mb/s. Very impressive.

Now there has been a Magician software update.

I run a performance test and just look at these numbers!! Incredible stuff (also note the comparative speed between the SSD and my Spinpoint standard HDD).

Can anyone explain how these incredible results are being achieved? :)

Use CrystalDiskMark, 4569Mb/s doesn't seem right, even PCIe SSD can't reach more than 3Gb/s

Very interesting. Have a Samsung 512Gb SSD myself. However not running the software (didn't think it has that feature), might have to give this a try.

That's even more unlogical.

So basically by this test a 500Gb EVO for 250$ is twice faster than OCZ Z-Drive R4 that costs 4500$?

I don't know what to tell ya! Two separate benchmarks confirm these ridiculous speeds.

AMD CPUs are tend to tell false temperature at 1st glace, using the RAM with that EVO is probably generate flase results.

It's well known that the best SSDs by order are the OCZ Vertex 460, Sandisk Extreme and Corsair Force GS.

So far you can't buy them yet but ok, I see they'll costs about 10-30$ more than the 840.

And by the way this is from a legit review on the 850 series:

I am sorry but, the most trusted hardware sites that I know out of 15+ that I read daily is the first two I posted and both of them have the 4K random read of 850 series around 100MB/s, nowhere near 42MB/s...

ps: Unless you are talking about 840 evo...

It's still not a 740Mb/s like the TC got.
