My boot drive is a Samsung 860 EVO 500 GB SSD that is showing ~2400 MB/s and even faster write times! I still have SATA 2. There's a few PNY drives that are reading ~275 MB/s which seems about right. Here's two benchmarks... "https://imgur.com/gallery/4gtW54D". Running an ASUS P7P55-M with an i7 870. I'm updating to a ASUS ROG Crosshair VII and a Ryzen 7 2700X in 10 days.

Am I missing something? These speeds seem wrong, but with 3 different benchmarks, they're all approximately the same.

You are most probably using "Rapid mode" that artificially enhances speed by using RAM as an added fast cache.
