We simply started an application or game, and measured the
time taken for the application or game to fully load and start.
Application loading times

These types of tests are becoming pretty pointless, as there
is so little difference in tangible performance between the modern SSDs.
However, the Samsung 840 EVO mSATA 1000GB SSD loads this large application in
3.39 seconds, and finishes the test in joint third place.

Again, I doubt anyone could tell difference from the fastest
to the slowest modern SATA 6Gbps SSD, as they are all very close.
Games loading times
FAR CRY 2
Once again the results are all very close, and I highly

The Samsung 840 EVO mSATA 1000GB SSD posts the seocnd fastest
By now it’s is becoming very clear that the Samsung 840 EVO
mSATA 1000GB SSD delivers excellent performance, and its excellent reading capabilities
have ensured that it’s one of the fastest SSDs in these tests.
Now let’s head to the next page where we will see how the
Samsung 840 EVO mSATA SSD performs in PC Mark 8…..
