Considering you purchased the smallest 970 those benchmarks are good. It's still 6-7 times faster than a Sata 3 drive.
You can go here to compare benchmarks against other NVME drives:

Thanks for your reply ddaniel51
I'm sorry I didn't state the drive size. I've updated the OP.
Regarding your answer, I did benchmark my whole computer using the very same website you're linking and I got a below average score compared to other users' drives, that's when I got suspicious and went ahead and test with CrystalDiskMark.

Ok, was looking at your C partition size.
I run a high end Asus gamer with 8 NVME's, 1ea 960 Pro 1TB, 4ea 960 Pro 2TB, 1ea 970 Pro 1TB, and 2ea 970 EVO 2TB. 4 on Asus Rampage VI Apex motherboard with 4 in the Asus Hyper M.2 X16 PCIE add on card. CrytalDiskMarks on these are comparable to yours. I don't use any Sata drives on this rig as the NVME speeds spoil you.
Don't ask how much it cost.

What a beast your machine!
Really don't you think my 4k's -specially Q1T1- are way too below average?
Anyway, I know there could be other factors. It's probably not enough to ask for a replacement or even worry too much...
Let's see if other people can share their view.

Here is a link to Samsungs Brochure which includes drive performance for the different size 970's:
I think you'll like it.

Thanks for the link!
Like I said I was looking more at other people's benchmarks than to the actual specs of the drive.
All the reviews I see get way better numbers and of course there is the userbenchmark.com comparison which states way below average:

This is my benchmark on updated drivers, bios and PCI-E 3.0 on Ryzen 2700x and MSI B450 Tomahawk. That ssd is a joke, I sent it for repair, if they won't replace my drive then I'm gonna sue them.
