It's strange because my driver page says the driver provider is "Microsoft," but when clicking details, I see "secnvmeF.sys" which is the Samsung driver, and Samsung Magician says "Samsung" for the NVMe driver. I'm sorta confused at that point....

Is 4 drivers listed under the Driver Details common though? And if not, is there any way I can remove / change them? Any method I tried to install the Samsung drivers failed since a better one / same one was already installed, which it technically is....

Anyways, I included my GPU-Z just to show the PCIe bus.


@maxmix65 Am I correct in assuming from your pictures that you're running Veracrypt full-disk encryption on your NVMe boot drive? If so, do you think you could show me your "Driver Details"?

Using adapter you lose pciex lines on video card
Without adapter, video card works 3.0x16 (before 3.0x8)

Is there any method to revert the firmware?

Any updates on this? I have the same issue. Updated to latest firmware through Magician 5, then ran a performance benchmark which shows a significantly drop in performance.
Emailed Samsung support and they're asking me to secure erase my drive as if I had 2TB disks lying around to do a full back up! It's very annoying!

No update! After that time i had upgraded Windows 10 (Creators Update) and BIOS for MB (Asus z170 Maximus Extreme) - nothing helped. My current speed is ~2150/1950 (r/w). Tried to contact with Russian Samsung support (cause i'm from Russia) - "960 Pro not officially selling in Russia". Ok, US support not helped too, cause my drive is from computeruniverse (German store). German Samsung support site is too damn hard to understand ))).

So my only hope is U guys! Don't want to erase all data - my drive is for system.

Damn firmware...

You guys are worried about nothing.

You're only going to get rated speeds with a near/empty drive.

2150/1950 is respectable especially if your drive is over 50% full

There's nothing wrong eith the firmware honestly. If you want big inflated numbers, its Crystaldiskmark or Magician 4.9.7.

And depending on how the board's wired, your PCIe lanes on NVMe could be either from CPU HSIO or chipset.

I have noticed a LOT of people here are having issues pertaining to slow performance after the last firmware update. I to noticed a slight decrease in performance of about 200MHz for random read/write. For unrelated reasons after I updated the firmware I had to wipe my 960 pro and perform a clean installation of Windows. Just to give a quick snapshot I am actually typing this as I'm running CrystalDiskMark so I'm not getting my best results. I have found that to restore your speed your best bet will be to wipe your drive and do a clean install. I realize that this is going to be painful for most. Please do anything and everything to prove me wrong and by all means do so. I can't stand it when hardware makers create shoddy software and firmware. At the very least be straight and tell the consumer that your firmware update will require a clean install for best performance.

Wrong.
1st - my drive 35% full.
2nd - speeds fault happens right after firmware update (i do the test before and after).

It's not OK. Are u agree?
