This is what to expect from a 960 EVO m.2 NVMe if you're stuck at PCIE 3 x 1 speeds:


It's really all about setting the drives up correctly to max speeds your system will allow.

Note: Pay attention when downloading CrystalDiskMark or you could wind up with the Shizuka Edition... eh-smiley.gif


idk. this is my 850 evo m.2 250gb

That is not representative of drive performance at all, it's representative of RAM/Cache performance which requires multiple runs to get set properly. Bump that 100MB to 4GB+.

Huh, what?

 

I merely said that it has been established that he has a SATA drive that is plugged into a M.2 socket and it is functioning like the SATA drive that it is.  I never said "sata M.2" in my post, however, I'm curious as to why you find those two words impossibly incoherent now that you mention it.  Those two facts have indeed been established, no? 

 

Or are you suggesting that a M.2 socket can be configured both as SATA or PCIe "on the fly" by the chipset?  I've never seen that before.  Yes, there are modern motherboards that have M.2 ports that are SATA only, like the OP has.  I bought a Lenovo M700 six months ago with a Core i3-6310T, and it's M.2 slot only accepts SATA drives, so it is quite content with its 850 EVO M.2 SATA drive.  If you can tell me how to convert it to PCIe, I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like to know.

You are benching your RAM, Blaze.  Turn off RAPID and see what you get.
