NVMe driver for 980 PRO SSD

Hi,

 

I just would like to know if Samsung plans to release a new proprietary NVMe driver with 980 PRO SSD support ?

 

If not, why ?

 

Also, does Samsung plans to maintain the current NVMe 3.x driver for older NVMe SSD like 970 or its development is stopped ?

 

Thanks.

 

Julien

Re: NVMe driver for 980 PRO SSD

When I spoke with Samsung tech support about 10 days ago, I was told that there would be an NVMe driver specifically for the 980PRO sometime in November 2020. I had been having problems with very slow random write speeds around just 1,000. But a week later, the random write speed lept up to over 5,000 and has remained there ever since. I have no clue why it had been running so slowly or why it suddenly started running around the advertised speed. But it sure makes a difference. You can feel the greater spriteliness of the higher write speed. The random read speed has consistently been around 6,500.
