It's quite weird!

My M.2 drive shows up fine in windows, and when testing with Crystaldiskmark I'm getting the read/write numbers that I should be getting from that disk. Around 3200mb/s in read and around 1500mb/s in write. But when I run the PPBM (which is a benchmark for Premiere Pro) the speeds are only around 4-500mb/s.

Something must be wrong... I'm using the latest drivers and firmware for the drive, been testing both with and without Samsung magician installed (magician is giving me the same numbers when I test the speeds).

So, how come I'm getting the read/write speeds that I'm suppose to have when benchmarking with Crystaldisk/magician, but not when I'm exporting in Premiere?

My setup is as follows:

AMD RYZEN 7 1700 3.0GHz 8-Core Processor
Asus PRIME X370-PRO ATX AM4 Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (4 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory
Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Samsung 960 EVO 250GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive
Western Digital Red 3TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 G1 ROCK 6G
EVGA SuperNOVA G2 650W 80+ Gold

OS/Boot is on the 850 evo. Projects/Scratch/Media DB on the 960 evo.
Memories currently running at default, which was 2133MHz.

Any ideas about what's going on here? Is there some kind of bottleneck in my system that I'm not aware of?
