I switched from an Asus PRIME Z490-P to a MSI MAG Z490 TOMAHAWK and my performance went from this: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/29990138 to this: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/30030833 I checked to see if the drive was in 3x4 and it is. Maybe I'm missing some setting?

The M.2 is a Sabrent Rocket 1TB (SB-RKTQ-1TB)

Here's CrystalMark (I don't have the one from the Asus motherboard): View: https://i.imgur.com/PKrM4pK.png
