Hi, the title pretty much says it all.

I recently bought a new M.2 SSD from intel, and I currently have 2 other drives in my computer, a Samsung SATA ssd and a regular old HDD. I've installed multiple games on this drive such as Battlefield V and the new Call Of Duty Modern Warfare, and I notice that frames are significantly lower than they are on my sata ssd or hdd. I've already downloaded all drivers from intel, and I have downloaded MSI utility to download the drivers from that program. I did install the SSD, so it could be an error in installation on my part, but I don't see how that is possible cause it works perfectly fine, it just run games at significantly less frames for some reason. For instance in Battlefield V i average around 140 - 180 on my SATA ssd, but when I put it on my new M.2 it would only get like 80 - 110.

If you have any ideas please leave them below.

Have you installed Intel's NVME driver, or are you perhaps using auto-supplied default MS/WIndows provided driver?

(note the second option on this page!)

Is your M.2 bandwidth in BIOS set to 4x lanes?

RUn CrystalDiskMark sequential read/write tests....if it is reading 1200-1300 MB/sec, it is working normally,

Do these results show it is working properly?
Also, I don't know where in my MSI bios I can change my M.2 bandwith to 4x lanes, and I installed the driver successfully.
