Hey guys , sorry for this newbie question, but some can explaine this to me.

i bought a Samsung 980 PRO 1 TB :

(up to 7.000 MB/s) NVMe M.2 (2280) Internes Solid State Drive (SSD) (MZ-V8P1T0BW)

now i got these stats :



I use a Ryzen 9 3950x on a Gigabyte X570 AORUS Elite Board.


All Selftests in BIOS / Windows look fine. so i wondered why the writing and reading speed is at ~1500 MB/s

thanks

It should work beautifully fast, suffice to say you have a compatible motherboard. I believe that if you don't have Gen4 it will still be pretty damn great @ Gen3 speed.

And it's 1TB of space, I think it an awesome drive and I'm also planning on getting one installed in my pc.

Looks to me like your getting Gen3 speeds, not bad at all, but if you where hoping to achieve Gen4 speed you might need some more assistance to get it sorted.

yeah, how i said, i am not into it this perfect and my english kind of bad :D

i know that "up to 7GB/s" dont meen " 7 GB/s !" , but 1,5GB/s is ~22% ?

thats why i asked for advice :) but maybe someone have a great idea :D thank you

Alright so I have looked @ your motherboard webpage, And if there isn't anything besides the fact that you would require a 5000 series CPU to make Gen4 M.s speed work.

You have 3000 series CPU, thus only Gen3 speed, I would upgrade that CPU to get top speed...

If it's not CPU related then, there might be some other setting or such witch you must just enable in the bios.

Keep us update on your findings.

Try another bencmark such as the samsung one or crystal disk mark. Verify your slow speeds if its still 1500/mbs you have a problem or a settin gthat needs to be changed.

I have a 3900x and 2TB 980 PRO and I get 7000/5000 when I did the benchmarking.

So if it's confirmed to have full speed with a 3000 series CPU then there has to be something you must do to make it write\read faster.

i got it (i guess ? :D )


so reading is on 4,8 GB/s , writing 3,7 .

i tried many things : chipset update , reset bios settings .

under Samsung Magician ran a full test, and it shows me an error, and i have to re-install the firmware. i clicked install, pc restarted, and now i am on 4,8 / 3,7

As ssd shows your partition alignment is wonky.
Might be something to chase.
