Specs: (running Windows 10 with latest updats)
ASROCK B560M Pro4
Ryzen 5 3600
16GB 3200 G.Skillz Ripsaw (2x8GB)
XFX Radeon 580 8GB
Bootdrive: Samsung 980 EVO 500GB (PCIe 4x 16GT/s - as stated in HWiNFO64)
Storage: Western Digital WD BLACK SN750 NVMe M.2 2280 1TB PCI-Express 3.0 x4
Additional Storage: 2x 3TB 7200rpm SATA 6GB/s HDDs
So all the benchmarks SEEM to look OK in CrystalDiskMark 8.0 for the 980 EVO (not exactly sure what they SHOULD be)
AND when I copy a multi-file folders to-and-from the WD I get reasonable numbers, I THINK (again I’m not sure what they are SUPPOSED to be) - This also goes for copying a SINGLE LARGE FILE to-and-from the WD
BUT when I copy a file FROM the Samsung back TO the Samsung the numbers are ATROCIOUS!
The temps on the drive are normal so I know it’s not thermal issues
And when using the additional rustys iron drives the perform as expected…
I’m not sure if this is typical behavior for the 980 to run between 400 and 500 MB/s when copying a file from one folder to another on itself, BUT it seems like the 6GB/s Samsung throws around is a bit misleading at this point.
Can someone tell me if this is normal, and if not if there is anything I can do about it?
Oh yea… added screen captures of the tests, and I put the upload code where I wanted the pics to be, but I’m not sure if it works that way… so if it does then you’ll see one of the pics has a VERY LOW transfer speed and THAT is from one folder on the 980 to another, the rest are between the 980 and the WD… and the CrystalDiskMArk and HWiNFO64 are for the 980 -
