Samsung 1TB 850 Evo Underperforming

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

 

Recently purchased a 1TB Samsung 850 Evo. I ran the SSD Benchmark tool on http://ssd.userbenchmark.com/ and it told me that my SSD was underperforming. Specifically, it placed my SSD in the bottom 22 percentile. The Sequential and Random 4K collectively performed on par. However, the Deep Queue 4k was horrible. It showed Mb/s at around 20-30. Whereas, it should be 158 MB/s.

 

I'm not sure what could be causing this. I have the SSD plugged into a SATA 3 port on my mobo. I also ran the Samsung Magician software when I bought it so; the firmware is up to date, it's configured for RAPID, it's set up on AHCI, and I have it optimized for "Maximum Performance."

 

I'm not sure what's wrong here. Does this indicate a faulty SSD? Should I RMA it? I'd hate to put more programs on it only to have it fail.

 

Any one else ever experience this?

Yes, brand new, got it a couple of weeks ago. Did a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro x64.

 

I've hardly written any data, maybe 350Gbs.

 

How would I go about finding out if Trim is full or if it is over provisioned?

Disable rapid mode so you are actually benchmarking the SSD, not your RAM cache. That's your issue.

Looks fine other than your power savings features on your chipset slowing 4K down slightly. Also you don't have your SATA driver installed.

Thanks Sean.

 

Sadly, my mobo's website doesn't support SATA drivers for my OS.
