I have Samsung 980 nvme m.2 500gb. I've never done benchmark before so today I did it in CrystalDisk program.

Speeds which I get are: Read around 1670 and Write around 1780. I don't know am I getting what it is supposed to, as I see that it can go much further in speed.

It is installed inside m.2 slot which is PCIe 4.0 x4. The rest of my pc is:

11600k
Gigabyte Z590 ud ac
Crucial Ballistic 16gb 3200mhz

So are these speeds normal or not?

Please show the output of Samsung Magician or CrystalDiskMark, instead of just numbers.
Screencap, post the pic to imgur.com, and post the link here.

But, those numbers show approx PCIe 3.0 x2 performance.

After I installed the newest version of CrystalDiskMark I'm getting much better result there. It's close to result from Magician as well.
Still I'm not sure if it's good enough. I'm posting screenshots:
