Hi Guys,

I have Samsung's new PCIe M.2 960 Pro drive on a Gigabyte X99P-SLI motherboard (with 6800K) and noticed running any speed tests that I'm hitting half the speeds (1500MB/s). I just upgraded to the latest Samsung Magician v5 which is supposed to support the 960 Pro/EVO drives and noticed the "Interface" as "PCIe Gen. 2 x 4" instead of Gen 3 x4 which is what it should run at. Any ideas what I have wrong or missing?

I'm running the Samsung NVMe Driver v2 with Windows 7 Pro.

btw, v5 of Magician software is suppose to support the 960 but yet it still says "This drive is not supported"

I would check for a BIOS setting that might limit the M.2/U.2 slot speed, maybe a setting that has a compatibility mode?

Frank, have you found a solution yet?

I am also having the same problem. Same with you i am also using the Gigabyte X99p-sli Motherboard with 6800k. It says in the motherboard it supports Gen.3 but it doesn't show up in the Bios, even after updating with the latest Drivers and software. Hoping you have some luck on your end figuring this out?

or are we getting Ripped off?

So I did a little more digging for y'all. It seems like both your mobos straight up do NOT support the 960 Pro SSDs and I assume it is a wonder that your SSDs are working to begin with. Sorry about that and the late reply!

I think 960 Evo May need an update in the X99p-sli. The 960 Evo to be fair only came out not too long ago. Just awaiting for the update. If it takes too long, a solution is always get a Pcie x4 M.2 adapter, but i just cbf with the cost at the moment.

Maybe, but I thinkitshould work, just at reduced speeds due to lack of supoort.

Sorry for the late reply, the solution I found was to buy a PCIe card slot which allows the full x4 Gen 3 speeds and no problems for the past few months.

The one I choose was an Asus Hyper M.2 X4 Mini Card off eBay. These cards come with the higher end Asus X99 motherboards so some offload it on ebay who don't need it for half the retail price.

Are we getting ripped off? I think so sadly but I think I did someone said that a 6850 or any processor with 40-lanes that it works and somehow a 28 lane processor such as our 6800K is the cause.
