I did say minimal to be fair and not zero risk.

I was just meaning you dont have to run it with write cache buffer flushing turned off. With my experience with microsoft driver you have to have it checked.

Agreed, certainly feel more comfortable using the HP driver with buffer flushing off.

Actually logged on today to post my own comparison benches (very similar results to your own) but you beat me too it and saved the trouble smile.gif

Apologies if this is stated anywhere else on this thread or this forum, I recently procured a Samsung 512GB SM951 NVMe MZVPV512HDGL / MZ-VPV512D to pair with my MSI Z170A Gaming M7. How does one erase the drive to factory state, i did some goggling and all it states is that you're not supposed to perform a secure erase like i would usually to to an SSD with parted magic. Also im guessing there are no F/W updates available and BXW72H0Q is the latest F/W. Many thanks thumb.gif

AFAIK no utility has been made yet to support secure erasing the SM951.
Based on your firmware version I would say you have a HP specific SM951 and that it's one firmware version behind.
The one I have is BXW7300Q

how do you flash it to the latest version?

http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=wk_149537_1&swEnvOid=4059

Here are the results with my 256gb Samsung SM951.

Which OS do you use?
i know that driver is listed as W7 only but i tried it anyway with Windows 8.1 It completely ruined my OS, hat to reinstall.

This looks like the HP version that is used on the turbo drive.
The easiest way to completely clean it up is jusing the diskpart clean command.
Of course this does not erase all data but in 99% of all use cases, this will be sufficient to begin from scratch.

You should also check the last 5 letters on your SSD label, like MZVPV512HDGL-xxxxx

AFAIK the tools to do so have not been released by Samsung or any of the OEM integrators.
HP has some info on it here but that's all I could find:
http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02435719

Read the "Note" under "Checking the SSD Manufacturer and Firmware" in step 5.
Take it with a grain of salt though, because as of now Samsung Magician does not work witht he SM951.
So I'm not sure what they are referring to...
To any owners of SM951 drives, this did not change now with the new release of Magician right?
