Hi everyone,

- Samsung NVMe Drivers (Drivers Only) :

Drivers : 3.3.0.2003 WHQL [21/01/2020]
Download : Link (https://mega.nz/file/ZMEUmQjT#PPeHsH9pvfJr7Mvd-tHAElkA1AdfU4sdXF5o9vgEM94)




OS requirements : Windows 10 64 bit 1703/RS2/15063.x or more recent.
Hardware requirements : Motherboards with Samsung NVMe SSD.






Hey Mr.M

I have 2 m.2 NVMe ssd in my rig. I have Samsung Magician installed all ready. Do I need to install these drivers, I checked SM to update no no update came up?

If I do install this driver will it mess anything up on my rig?

Thank you in advance.

UPDATE: I figured it out MR. M

Thank you for all you do for us here on the rog forums.

Assuming that you're using PCIe NVMe SSDs and you don't have them setup In RAID then yes, install the drivers. I'm not sure, but I also thing the answer is "Yes" if you are using SATA NVMe.

I tried installing these drivers on my Z390-E but after reboot the driver version still gives the Microsoft 2006 driver. What am I doing wrong?85007

Look under Storage Controller and NVME.

bscool - thank you!!!! They are showing up there. I have a lot to learn.

Do you NEED to install them, no. They'll run fine on microsoft ones. But for optimal performance the samsung ones are recommended yes

If I am looking at the specs. correctly, going to a PCIe 4 drive and an 11th generation processor on my Z490 board would almost double the speed of a M.2 drive running as 4x?

I plan on moving to the 11th generation so I can check the performance of my PCIe 4 Video card and a new Pcie 4 drive.. It may be impressive. I have to think Intel decided to go to PCIe4, even though they had been stating it wasn't a useable performance boost, for some reason. Possibly sales or the license situation for PCIe 4 has changed.

You also need the Samsung drivers so the Magician software can monitor the drive for firmware updates and problems.

Hi,

You don't need Samsung NVMe drivers if you use an Samsung NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD because they currently use the Microsoft NVMe built-in driver.

I haven't tested the Microsoft version of the driver, stornvme.sys, for a few years but it used to have terrible performance. And as I mentioned, you can't run the Magician software to benchmark the drive and do firmware updates without using the Samsung driver.

I would not run a Samsung NVMe drive without their driver.. I would not even buy an NVMe drive unless it had an OEM driver..

Make sure we are keeping NVMe drives which are being operated in a SATA environment different from an NVMe drive being operated in its natural environment. The Intel SATA/PCIe Premium driver did vastly improve the performance in a drive being used in SATA configuration. Intel needs to run those drives using a RAID controller so its Optane memory will function correctly.
