NUC9i7QNX PCH M.2 Nvme SSD Read/Write Low Speed

I installed a Samsung 970 evo in the Nuc9i7qnx pch m.2 slot, but it doesn't get the proper speed.

The original speed should be over 3000MB/S for Read, but it operates at half the speed of about 1900MB.

For what reason?

I have a NUC9V7QNX.   Compared to yours:

I have a Samsung 970 EVO+ 512GB installed.

Al's system is identical to yours, barring its support for vPro. If your system continues to have this issue (you've tried rerunning after reboot?), I suggest you open the system back up and reseat (i.e., remove and then reinstall) the SSD. If this fails to fix the issue, I suggest you replace this SSD (you would not be the first person to come here complaining about what turns out to be a bad SSD).

Hope this helps,
