3600 Mb/s at PCIe 4.0 should give it the Blue model, not the black. Until now WD's namings have been so clear, a cripled 4.0 Black drive sure messes it up. Maybe it should be a Blue model, or even a Green?

Right? My Thoughts exactly. Like at that point just leave it PCIe 3. Doubt most people will even see a difference. I built a buddy a AMD Ryzen 3700X built like a year- year and a half ago and got then Inland brand of M.2 SSD. It was a 1TB PCIe 4.0. Said it should do like 5900R/5600W and it only 100 MB less than what they said in every test i threw at it and man i could tell a difference. Going SATA to PCIe 3 NVMe, unless on copy large files, i never see much of a difference.
