    Location: Kent, UK.

    I currently have two 970 Evo Plus's which will soon be replaced with 980 Pros.

    970 1TB; Read, 3575. Write, 3101. IOPS R; 358154. IOPS W; 288818.
    970 2TB; Read, 3291. Write, 2682. IOPS R; 381103. IOPS W; 320800.

    Previously I had the standard Hero board, the speeds are within a margin of error with each other. I tried with and without the NVMe drivers installed and scores remind pretty much the same.

    I'm running 2xSabrent Rocket 4 Plus 2TB drives. Their scores are pretty close, so I'll just post C drive:

    Read, 6959. Write, 6208.06. IOPS R: 301628. IOPS W: 391615

    edit: transposed 2 numbers by mistake

    Nice jump in figures there for the Plus version of the rocket over my standard rocket. shows the new controller chips they've installed are making a difference. though random reads seem to be lower which is strange

    Rocket - Sequential Read 5634, Sequential write 4248 (in MB/s) Random Read 426757 Write 354980(IOPS)

    Thanks for your input guys, would you say the benchmark results are in line with what you expected?
    Are they reaching the rated specifications of the drives?

    Yeah, apparently there's a new version of firmware coming out to address some "performance edge cases". But no sign of it yet.

    I am getting 4x2 borderline Gen 3 speeds on the 2nd slot for the similar drive (non-plus version) and I can't seem to find an explanation. Back and forth with Asus and they don't seem to know why.

    Thanks for your input, let us know if Asus come up with anything to resolve it for you.

    Hi

    Installed my additional NVME tonight and speeds appear to be just fine.
    So I have a Samsung 980 500GB in slot 1 and an SN850 2TB in slot 2.

    Tested the Samsung in a single disk configuration in slot 1 before adding the WD SN850

    Installed the WD SN850 and retested the Samsung in slot 1

    Then tested the WD SN850 in slot 2

    Thanks @Mike1983 for the benchmark results,
    one question aren't the Seq reads a little low, shouldn't they be around 7000MB/s?

    I’ve not checked against anyone else’s results so don’t really know. I know 7000 is the advertised figure but assumed this was close enough? Like max advertised bandwidth from your ISP? Do they look a little low compared to others?

    Like you said the advertised read speed is 7000 and this is what it gets when reading reviews online, I suppose 6500 isn't too bad, but could be better.

    It's one of the gen 4 drives that I will be using so thanks again for the benchmarks.

    I’ll run it again in a few days after loading some games on etc for you, see if anything changes.

    P.S, I saw the software had loads of various settings to configure the test. Shout up if I should have selected something specific configuring. All I did was check the NVME option from memory.

    edit - Also I’m on complete stock system settings inc RAM if that makes any difference. Overclocking is probably going to be a next weekend job.

    Thanks, I'm not really sure about what options to check.
    Might be worth doing a benchmark with 5 passes which I think is normally the default, you have it set on 2 passes in you pictures, might make a differnce

    Do you have the latest AMD chipset drivers installed, and the latest bios, maybe these things will help.

    Fixed now. Saw someone online had a near identical issue and all he did was re-seat the drive so tried that, and it's now working as intended.

    Just had a quick play with overclocking.
    Managed to get into Windows with 4GHz RAM and 2GHz FCLK. Will be benchmarking later.

    Here are some SSD readings from my Rig:

    Seagate 2TB Firecuda 520 in M.2 Slot 1

    Another Seagate 2TB Firecuda in M.2 Slot 2

    I also have a 1TB Sabrent Rocket 4 in an M.2 to PCIe converter.


    Samsung Magician Benchmarks I ran over a month ago after I put the system together:

    Seagate Firecuda 520 (Slot 1):
    5640 Read
    4449 Write

    Seagate Firecuda 520 (Slot 2):
    5641 Read
    4263 Write

    Sabrent Rocket 4 (M.2 to PCIe Converter):
    5641 Read
    4264 Write


    New Benchmarks I ran today after more than 1 month of use:

    Seagate Firecuda 520 (Slot 1) (About 40% full)
    5632 Read
    4272 Write

    Seagate Firecuda 520 (Slot 2) (Also about 40% full)
    5640 Read
    4266 Write

    Sabrent Rocket 4 (M.2 to PCIe Converter) (About 10% full)
    5640 Read
    4274 Write
