Benchmarks: File Copy Test
Copying large files on the Samsung SSD 850 Pro is extremely fast with a throughput of 364MB/s, 34MB/s faster than the previous champion, the SSD 840 Pro. Enabling RAPID mode improved performance by another 12% to 409MB/s.
The program copy performance was just as impressive as the SSD 850 Pro managed to sustain a throughput of 260MB/s, making it 28% faster than the SSD 840 Pro. Unfortunately, we found RAPID mode was of no benefit here. In fact, we lost a bit of performance.
In our game copy results, the SSD 850 Pro impressed us with a throughput of 350MB/s, which is 40% more performance than what we received from the SSD 840 Pro.
