Hello i just got a new rig and in it is also a Samsung SSD 970 500Gb Evo NVMe m2, on a Gigabyte x470 Aorus ultra gaming mainboard.

i have connected it on M2 slot #2.
But when i run Samsung Magician i see that's only PCIe Gen 2 x 4 ?
I have installed the latest firmware version 2XBQEXE7

My score is 1810 MB/s for read and 1604 MB/s for write. This seems to me is the half what it could do from performance thats has been announced by Samsung. What did i do wrong?

Is it also possible to just switch the module from M2 socket, without losing data? Will the data be lost after disconnecting it from the Mainboard?

I am uncertain if i mounted it correct, i think i have installed the right, drivers etc...

You need to change it to the other m.2 port.

You want it in the M2_A slot.
