    The speed are depends on how much storage you have left on the SSD. If you run the benchmark with just fresh Windows installation and drivers, nothing more you will probably get very close results to the advertised speeds.

    did the benchmark on my 2xWD SN850 1TB

    Slot 1
    9% full
    Read: 6972 Write: 5156.22

    Slot 2
    36% Full
    Read 6232.65 Write: 3232.85

    Benchmarked slot 2 WD SN850 few times with same result. No idea why write speed is way lower than slot 1. But those r the results.

    Thanks for posting the results. Like you say it's odd that the second slot performs worse seems to confirm the reports I have been reading.

    Yet on the previous page another user showed better results on the second slot. :confused:

    My SN850 in slot 2 scores very similar to yours:

    Slot 2
    28% Full
    Read 6268 Write: 3307

    Just a quick post from me to to advise that even though I previously reported being able to boot into Windows with 4000MHz RAM and 2000MHz FCLK and a quick and rough CPU overclock, I was getting some audio ‘pops’ in games and music.

    Localised it to the RAM by putting CPU back to standard (pops still there), removed RAM OC and problem went away.

    Need to find some time to properly play around!

    Can't recall where I read it, but a possible explanation is that M.2_1 goes through the CPU and M.2_2 goes through the X570 chipset which has to share it's bandwidth with other connected devices.

    I should have a pair of 980 Pro's within the next week or two, so be interesting to see how they stack up to other results here.

    Is it worth just getting the normal hero at this point since the stock situation for the dark hero is looking bleak for the foreseeable future?

    Installed my two new 980 Pro's, results are;

    980 Pro 1TB; Read, 7122. Write, 5173. IOPS R; 359375. IOPS W; 286132.
    980 Pro 2TB; Read, 6578. Write, 5174. IOPS R; 375244. IOPS W; 312988.

    Seems to be a drop on the read speed on the 980 pro 2tb. Is that installed in the second slot?

    Yes, slot 1 is the 1tb which runs the OS/programmes and slot 2 is the 2tb which stores my most played games.

    Thanks, so as said a drop in read speed on the second slot, seems to be the same on everyone else's tests. Probably nothing to be too concerned about, must be due to it being from the chipset and not the cpu.

    Yes, the X570 is the same as the IO on the Ryzen CPU so my guess would be it’s down to some overhead in terms of the communications between the two.

    When gaming I see my my NVMe drives get up to 55/60c, I know this is well with spec, but curious what others are seeing with their drives?

    Max reported by HWiNFO64 since I last started it is 49°C for the Adata SX8200 in slot 1, and 47/61°C (two temp. sensors) for the Samsung 960 Pro in slot 2. I've seen quite a large range of temperatures reported by others around the internet, probably dependent on airflow from the GPU and case fans.
