I’ve just built a new pc that comprise:
Asus Prime z790P wifi motherboard
Intel I7 13700K
MSi radeon rx6700xt graphics card
WD_Black SN850X NVMe 1TB (DOM 16 NOV 2022) Firmware Version 620311WD.
The NVMe is in the slot closest to the cpu (slot M_ 1) and the bios setting for the drive is set to Auto detect (I’ve also tried forcing the Gen 4 setting manually).
The WD dashboard app tells me it’s Gen 4 using 4 lanes.
In device manager the drive policy states write caching is enabled.
I’ve tried running with and without the Intel rapid storage technology setting enabled in bios with no performance improvement.
As you can see from the pic , the drive falls far short of the expected up to 7300MB/s speed claim.
What else can I try or should I just replace the drive?
btw I’ve had no response from Support with logged Incident #: 230221-000210
