some users of SSD drives.
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
Adobe Fireworks CS3
There is so little difference in tangible performance between
the modern SSDs. However, the Samsung 850 Pro 512GB SSD loads this large
application in 3.36 seconds, and finishes the test in joint second place.
Corel PaintShop Pro 12
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

is amongst the fastest drives in this test.
By now it’s is becoming very clear that the Samsung 850 Pro 512GB
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 850 Pro SSD performs in PC Mark 8…..
