Hello.
Are this values "normal" with RAPID mode on on 860 EVO compared with 970 EVO Plus ?

Mode RAPID OFF :






Then, the same 860 EVO 500GB with RAPID ON :






Now, compared with benchmark for the 970 EVO Plus 1TB




Is the mode RAPID false ? Knowing that 970 EVO Plus dont have RAPID mode and seeing the results... I just wonder if the tests are acurate.
Thank you.

For the record, after reading your reply, I did test one archive (more than 26GB with more than 100.000 files with different sizes). The operation was extracting the archive. With RAPID mode on, time was 40 seconds, without, same archive, same operation 1minute20 seconds. It helps. I will log memory usages to see if this suck on my 32GB DDR4 RAM. Thanks again for your testimonial.

If part of your normal routine is unzipping a 26GB archive with a 100k files in it...then maybe.
For me, that is an exceedingly rare operation. As in I can't remember the last time I did that.
