I don't, perhaps if you had reading comprehension that was better than that of a child you would see that I am comparing Win10 with Win7 and seeing significantly better performance in the latter.
But seeing as I've told you that three times now and you don't seem to get it I'll just let you be on your way in lalala-land

The NVMe is performs better on Windows 7 for you?
For me, on Windows 7, Seq Read is at ~ 1500 with AS SSD and Crystal Disk Mark (SM951 NVMe)

I've seen "flex" mentioned a few times where people actually got an nvme sm951. I am interested in purchasing a samsung sm951-nvme, but the retail places I see that have it are in europe. I live in USA and don't want to pay the cutthroat taxes they charge over there. Is there any place an american can buy a 512GB sm951-nvme for a sane price? Does this "flex" person or place sell them? How do I get in contact with them?

http://arstechnica.co.uk/gadgets/2015/09/samsungs-950-pro-m-2-ssd-pairs-nvme-with-v-nand-for-eye-popping-performance/

"In the case of the 512GB Samsung 950 Pro, the combination of NVMe, speedy V-NAND chips, and a triple core, eight-channel UBX controller has resulted in some eye-popping performance. Sequential read speeds top out at 2500MB/s, while sequential writes hit 1500MB/s. By comparison, Samsung's OEM-only SM951 AHCI drive—which is based on the same UBX controller, albeit paired with planar NAND—tops out at 2150MB/s sequential reads and 1500MB/s sequential writes.

Random read performance on the 512GB 950 Pro is up to 300K IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second), with write speeds of up to 110K IOPS. Power tops out 5.7W on average, 7.0W in burst mode, and 1.7W at idle. The drive also features 512MB of DRAM memory, and support for 256-bit AES encryption. A future firmware update also promises to add TCG Opal support for Microsoft's eDrive standard.

Because the 950 Pro is a consumer drive—unlike the OEM-only SM951—Samsung is bundling it with its own proprietary NVMe driver, although, it will also be compatible with the standard driver available for Windows 7 and up."

Mmmm, kindof wishing I had waited now.... :-)

Main question being - will the 950 Pro driver work with SM951?

Of course: me too... If I had know that OEM SM951 would be such a pain in the ass I would have waited too. I am trying to upgrade from either Win 7 or Win 8 to Win 10 on the SM951 NMVe and it is a nightmare to get it to install an older OS on the drive. I managed to get a version of Win 8.1 on the drive, used a hack to get my Win 8 product key recognised, but now the Win 8.1 network adapter is not working correctly and will not let me get internet to update / install etc. I can install an new version of Win 10 straight onto the drive, but then I would need to spend an extra £85 on Win 10... Hopefully I will get is sorted eventually.

Has anyone else had success installing Win 7 or Win 8 onto a SM951 NMVe? (I am using an EVGA X99 Micro2, 256GB SM951 NMVe and either licenced versions of Win 7 or Win 8 before upgrading).
