    GX501 Thunderbolt and portable ssd problem

    recently I bought a sandisk extreme 900 portable ssd from amazon.
    the first unit arrived with crystaldiskmark reading like in this picture:

    the sequential read/write was 427/729mb/s.
    while the advertised speed was 800mb/s read/write
    i contacted sandisk tech support and they said the unit was fault.

    so I returned to amazon and replace a new one.

    i just got the new unit today and it is the same problem:

    I will pass this case to our technical support department to confirm whether this is normal.
    Sorry for the trouble.
