HP Pavilion 690-0067c OSP: Win10 64bit
Recently installed the new SSD a Samsung SSD 970 EVO NVMe 500GB PCIe 2X4. Speeds just didn’t seem to be great so I tried to figure it out & finally got someone at Samsung that helped me. Told me to make sure I had Samsung Magician installed and to run a test, did so & gave him the write speed of 1608 & he told me that was way to slow so he had me look further and it is listed in Samsung Magician as PCIe Generation 2X4 not what I should have, I should show PCIe 3X4. He told me to be sure my PC will run this SSD & from what I have found in my research and from talking to other more qualified than me it will. Now I cant figure what to change in the BIOS to make it show up as PCIe 3X4 & why this would install as PCIe 2X4 & not 3X4. Anyone know how to change this to get better speeds. I do not see a choice in my Bios for either 2 X 4 or 3 X 4. Just shows the Samsung SSD. Now should I disconnect the 2nd Non SSD drive (WD Black 2TB) in the PC until I get this corrected as the BIOS lists it as the 1st drive and I cant seem to make it stick when I change it in the Bios. Why ?. I have made several changes in my old PC in the Win7 BIOS but it was easier to deal with.
