Why are my Crystal Disk Mark Scores so High?

Samsung Rapid mode uses RAM as cache. That's why the speeds are so high.

Just a quick question:

 

Why are my Crystal Disk Mark scores so high?

 

I have a Samsung 850 Evo

 

I'm having amazing scores, especially on read performance (not upset with that, just curious):

other 850 Evo scores onilne are more like this:

I have 3 hypothesis:

 

1) I did the test wrong

2) Samsung Magician (RAPID mode enabled) is doing something to boost the performance

3) Intel Rapid Storage is doing something to boost the performance

 

I remember setting up some kind of cache thing in the past (either in windows itself or the two previously mentioned programs) but I can't remember what program it was in and I can't find anything about it in the Samsung or Intel programs.

 

Is the cache thing affecting my scores? Is this showing real world performance, or is it just loading in the cache?

Is it very representative of real world performance?

 

Also does that show up as cached memory, or hardware reserved memory, or...

After I knew that it was the Samsung software, I found the setting. A little research I can see that I can't really ask if that's representative of real world performance. Thanks for your help!
