I've just bought the NUC so I don't have any previous experiences (benchmarks). I've made all driver updates including latest 42 BIOS. OS is Win10 Pro clean install.
One thing I noticed are slow USB ports. I've tried system SSD to USB, USB to SSD, USB to USB, and the max seq write is 40 MB/s.
I checked/verified BIOS settings, set Power options to High performance, I even re-checked SSD and USB drives but they work fine and fast.
Does anyone have an idea what's wrong? What are your USB speeds?
1- The correct answer by intel when opening an incident or claim of this type must be, we know the problem and we are solving this. Okay. Very good.
2- It is inaccessible by Intel to say: your device only supports 3 hdd.
As for the flicker on my monitor, the perfect refresh is 50 Hz. The image is very good.
Try this and see if it is corrected.
Sorry, my english again.
I hope, N Scott that soon the problem will be solved.
I hope to write the next time with the problem solved.
Again, no one has said that only those three external drives are supported. All it means is that only those three external drives have been tested by Intel.
Intel tests what they have; they are not going to spend a fortune acquiring more devices to test. If folks would like to contribute devices for testing, I am sure this can be arranged...
I open an incidence in intel about the usb 2.0 speed in my intel nuc and they answer me that only these three discs are verified and intel close the incidence.
This is normal ?
Does this answer seem normal?
I hope you understand my post now.
my original post:
a little update: 0045 has not fixed slow USB 3.0 ports. But 0045 seems to have fixed the HDMI 60Hz glitches on my end. Screen looks stable. Bigger issue is the slow USB ports.
What do I think? There is absolutely nothing wrong with your NUC; why would you want to return it? Your USB ports are slow. So what? You know this is a BIOS bug, not a hardware issue, and that it will be fixed fairly soon. Right now, you have a new NUC; if you return it for exchange, getting a new one back is NOT guaranteed. Be smart; show some patience and wait for the BIOS fix.
I am retired. I am here as a volunteer; nothing more...
i've purchased a NUC6CAYH and i've experienced the same USB 3.0 issue. Yesterday i've updated the BIOS at the latest version (0047) and for me the problem aren't solved. The USB ports speed, with an external Western Digital 1Tb USB 3.0 hard disk, remain around 28/30 Mb/s. This, for me, is an annoying problem. Can someone help me to solve this?
