A closer look at RAPID DRAM caching on the Samsung 840 EVO SSD - The Tech Report - Page 1
Even if we ignore the pitfalls, I can't help but wonder whether RAPID mode's performance benefits would be perceptible to typical users. We didn't see an improvement in load times, and our test system didn't feel any snappier with the RAPID cache enabled. SSDs already have near-instantaneous access times measured in fractions of a millisecond. Lowering those access times even further may have diminishing benefits for desktop workloads.
Although I wouldn't recommend that folks enable RAPID mode as it exists right now, I am encouraged to see Samsung exploring new ways to speed up its SSDs. RAPID mode definitely has the potential to become more appealing as it matures, and it won't be restricted to the 840 EVO for long.
