SSD: Rapid-mode + raid0 = even more speed?

Let's say i have a samsung 840 evo ssd in my build as a boot drive. Using the Samsung Magician Software i set it to rapid mode and get speed gains. Now, what if i decided to add in another samsung evo and set both ssd's up to raid0. Would that mean that i would keep the speed gains from rapid mode and get the speed gains that come out of a a raid0 connection on top of it?

  1. Rapid mode will not work in raid0.

    I don't mean to be a troll, but, even you could do it, why? >1GB/s not fast enough for you?
  3. In addition to not working with drives in RAID, RAPID also only works on one drive.
    So if you have 2 EVOs set up as C drive & D Drive, you can only enable RAPID mode on C drive or D drive, not both.

    Just out of curiosity. ;) Im just so satisfired with my evo that i thought about getting another one. In enjoy tweaking and upgrading and making fast things even faster. That's all.

    So basically, what would be preferable two ssd's in raid0 or one ssd in rapid-mode?
  6. One in RAPID mode would be best.

    Alright. Looks like im all set then. Many thanks!
  8. I dont think that is true. It depends what you are using the raid 0 drive for. I am raiding two samsung evo ssd's because I will be doing video editing that will benefit from that more than the rapid mode. Maybe I am wrong though.
