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. Same Hardware, just an OS change.

Windows Server 2008 R2 MOP

Otherworldly performance on Server 2008. This is most similar to the kind of performance you could expect from Windows 7 as long as you are running your 960 Pro on Samsung's NVMe driver.

Do not even think about running your 960 Pro on the MS NVMe driver for Windows 7/Server 2008 because it is even worse than the MS NVMe driver for Windows 10.
