Windows 11 is still halving NVMe SSD write speeds

Posted by in categories: computing, electronics

Months ago, before Windows 11 even shipped, beta users were complaining that Windows 11 was slowing their random write speeds on NVMe SSD by more than half.

Now, three months later and two months after the launch of the OS, it appears the issue is persisting.

Recent CrystalDiskMark benchmarks of the Samsung 980 Pro SSD performed by PleasedPen25317 show a massive reduction in random write speeds for any partition with Windows 11 installed.
