They are then allowed to use this data in any manner they wish, including selling it or bartering it to third parties about whom you know nothing.

    If you deny the software online access through your firewall, it won't load.

    Once I actually read the terms, I uninstalled it and deleted every vestige of it from my system.

    Know what you're getting into.

Samsung magician performance test shows my 960 pro 500 GB read speed at 1800 and write speed at 1635 when its supposedly rated and tested at 3500 read and 2500 write. The PCIe Gen shows 2 x 4. After that i have 1000000X installed windows again and still shows the same slowly write and read speed.
    What am I missing? Is there anything else I can do?
    Thanks in advance
    If you haven't already found it, your solution can be found with the Samsung NVME Driver on the Samsung site - located here:

    Hello

    I didnt read all posts in this thread - just wanted to say that I had the same issue with my Samsung M.2 960 PRO NVME SSD.

    Disabling XMP switch on motherboard AND manually in BIOS fixed my speeds.
    Another important detail s that (if your SSD is connected directly to motherboard - and not through utility card via. pci-express) You need to enable AHCI in BIOS (not RAID) when installing the nvme driver in your OS.

    RAID is a SATA technology as i understand - you shouldnt use it with m.2 drives.

    Board: Asus strix X99 gaming.

    I am not aware of XMP being any issue for an Nvme drive. And there is no issue with raid either. It just needs to be setup correctly in bios.

    Sure, please just read page 4 in the installation guide: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/co...uide_Rev23.pdf

    You cannot really argue against it.

    I have the same issue except Samsung's Magician says i'm running PCIE 3.0 X1. So i'm only using one lane. I have the Asus Rampage VI Extreme Motherboard with the 960 EVO 1TB NVME SSD installed in the DIMM.2 Slot by the RAM. XMP is enabled. I will try disabling XMP and setting the memory settings manually. I think it's odd that everyone elses EVO is running on PCI 2 x4, whereas mine is 3.0 x1
