Hey guys just a simple question here.

I have FiOS 100/100 and when downloading games I'm at a fluid 100mb/s download but my disk write speed it only 13mb/s and in task manager it's only utilizing 2-3% of my drive. My buddy with only 75mb/s download with Comcast can download and write/install the game in pretty much half the time.

The SSD is a 860qvo 2TB
Also the problem occurs on my m.2 970pro as well. Disks are not full, already checked most of the common problematic causes. What am I missing here?

Steam reports in megabytes/sec
Your ISP (i have the same) reports in megabits/sec.

Approx 8:1 ratio.

13 megabytes/sec from Steam is pretty much exactly 100 megabits from FiOS.
13 * 8 = 104.

There is nothing wrong, just a difference in units.
Which is faster, 160kph or 100mph?

You may be right and I was just looking at it wrong but then why is my connection to steam servers so poor lol. I live in the same complex as my buddy 😅
