    can't use it on my EVO 961, cause it's M.2/NVMe, but I do have Magician on an EVO 850, with 1809 booted on it. I do notice a big difference. Snappier in a lot of areas. Almost faster at certain tasks than the NVMe.

    I wonder what the technical reason is why its not available for nVMEs.

    Best guess is the Magician software is written for Sata controller, and an nVME is attached right to the system bus, not any controller. Already running fast as it can.

    I'd be interested to see 'real world' performance tests between the two. Boot up, Application loading, Transcoding, Editing operations etc.

    Well, a quick search turns up some useful articles:

    Negligible or no real world benefit. Possibly slower in some scenarios. Possible instability.
    I don't favour the additional services and low level drivers / filters as mentioned in post 2 so left Rapid Mode disabled.

    I've never felt any need to try it. Been running two 840 Pro SSD's for years and been perfectly happy with performance as is.
