Maxed-Out Performance

 

This testing is just to see what the drive is capable of in an FOB (Fresh Out of Box) state under optimal conditions. We are utilizing empty volumes of Windows 10 and Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit for this testing.

We had to use Samsung's previous NVMe driver for our MOP testing on Server. The new driver would not install on the older operating system. Our Vantage results on Server 2008 are a bit of a puzzle because they are actually much lower than we got on Windows 10 with the new Samsung driver.

 

This indicates that the new NVMe driver version may provide better performance than the previous version in certain corner-case scenarios.
