EVO 970 benchmark - I'm not completely satisfied

[ Edited ]

Hi everyone,

 

I just got a new Dell XPS 9570 and replaced the OEM drive with an EVO 970. This is the bechmark I got and I think is fairly below average.

 

What do you guys think?

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.

 

Thanks!

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.
