I just installed a Samsung SSD 960 EVO 1TB M.2 drive. It works well. Motherboard: Asus STRIX Z270F Gaming. 32GB RAM. Windows 10 (all current updates and patches) Samsung NVM Express Driver 2.2.exe installed. My question is about Magician 5.1.0. When I run the benchmark (I have the correct drive selected) it shows a sequential read speed of just 811 MB/sec. Capture attached. If I run other benchmarks, like CrystallDiskMark, it shows a sequential read speed of almost 3000 MB/sec. Capture attached. If I run ATTODiskBenchmark, it too peaks around 3000 MB/sec read speed. Capture attached. Based on what I've read, around 3000 MB/sec should be about right for this M.2 card. I've seen other posts from people who are getting around 3000 MB/sec read speed. So my question is why is Magician only showing a read speed of 811 MB/sec? Is there something configured wrong? Bruce.
