I got a new Samsung 960 PRO NVMe M.2 2TB SSD.  I had just installed it onto my PC and installed Windows 7 on it.  I then installed the .exe version of CrystalDiskMark.

 

 

I did four tests of my new drive using the CrystalDiskMark software.  I did four tests, the 1GB, 4GB, 16GB, and 32GB tests. Here are the results.

What do you think?  Are those good numbers?

 

You know what's funny?  I spent around $1300.00 for the Samsung 960 PRO NVMe M.2 2TB SSD.  Now they have the 970 NVMe drive, and it's Gen 3 - 4 ready, also 2TB, and it is going for just over $700.00.

 

I feel cheated somehow, because now I'm realizing that my "new" 960 Pro is not Gen 3-4 ready...  Which means, I'm not using the full capabilities of my motherboard...

 

*sigh*

 

In any case, I want to know if those are good numbers.  What do you guys think?

 

O.K.  here is my USB3 stick getting the CrystalDiskMark treatment.  This time it's a 16GB USB3 stick, and I did five passes of a 50MiB test on it.

Is that too slow for USB3?

Those look right. Also where do you live?! M.2 1TB NVME been $600 or lower for a year now. None Pro or other brands can be found for $350.

I got it from Newegg.  Taking another look at it, it turns out that I did get the Gen3 x4 version...  So, I'm good in that department.  Maybe there's something about it that makes it more expensive than other M.2 drives...  For example, I've learned that there are M.2 drives that are really just SATA drives, and then there are the M.2 NVMe (NeVer Me - LOL) which are the ones that are connected to the PCIe lanes.  Maybe that's why you've seen a price difference.  Or it could be because it's 2TB?

 

Thanks for giving me your thoughts on the numbers, ir_cow.

Eh, I was probably skimming the sites and mistaken SATA M.2 with the NVMe versions.

Is this an overclocked machine?  I don't overclock my machine.  I tested a 16GB Sandisk Cruzer Glide, the package said it was a USB3.  Could it be I got a crappy USB3 drive, or is it that my USB3 is not set up properly on my machine?

USB drive speed depends on firmware version, and optimization,.. SanDisk Cruzer Glide drives don't bench vary well, the Extreme drives do.

Nope , my 2600k at stock clock 3.4, but the usb stick is a 128 gb kingston hyper x. I'll do another test on a different stick and we'll see what speeds it gets.

You can improve the write data transfers by activating write caching in Windows, but be sure to Eject USB Mass Storage before unplugging drive. 

 

Locate the USB flash drive and right-click it to select Properties.

Click the Hardware tab.

Highlight the USB flash drive.

Click the Properties button.

Under the General tab, click Change Settings.

Click the Policies tab.

Select Better performance and click OK.
