I have 500Gb variant and installed Far Cry 5 on it. I noticed that from day to day nvme write is bigger and bigger.
I already switched off windows updates...
Is it Far Cry make that writes? Or should I do something else?

Cheers.

I'm sure this varies by what you do with the machine.
It could be updates or new stuff being added.
Is the amount of used space on the ssd rising?
If this continues day after day perhaps open the resource monitor and see if it gives a clue what is doing all the writing.
 
There will be lots of writes the first few days , namely the OS install, download/install of all apps, games, and WIndows updates..

After that it should settle down to 1 TB a month or so, typically....(Naturally, if you download/stream movies 24/7, this will increase markedly)
