    So did i read correctly that you installed the samsung (nvme) driver for a Teamgroup drive?
    I don't have any samsung drives anymore, so i got rid of the driver as well, but so far even the fastest nvme runs the advertised speeds (x570 board), without the samsung driver.

    The evolution of drives really is picking up nicely. Remember the old IDE, SCSI days, they were expensive, then Raptors... Then we had reasonably priced 7200rpm HDDs...

    With SATA SSDs, things picked up and now we have NVME at reasonable prices, good times.

    Go back further than that (80s) and 10mb drives were $2-3k when first released.

    Don't quite remember the drives from the 80s, but I do remember 20mb drives for Amiga well.

    My first PC HDD was a 850mb drive, couldn't quite afford the massive 1.2gb drive. Amazing, huh...

    Even as an OS drive where sequential read/write figures have little importance, this is impressive:

    4KB Random Read - Up to 750K IOPS (QD32)
    4KB Random Write - Up to 750K IOPS (QD32)

    But what are figures for PCIe 3.0 x4?

    For comparison, the specs for my Corsair Force MP510 1.92TB is: Up to 485K IOPS, and 530K IOPS respectively, and stuff loads pretty spritely already.
