got the 3B2QGXA7 firmware today, and it fixed this issue... we'll see how long it lasts...


Interesting. Was your NVME permanently in your system, and writing at far under 5000mb/s before the firmware went on?

Yes, I installed it last summer. Problem started appearing in December of last year, as seen in the following screenshot. Likewise, you can also see from my CrystalDiskMark screenshot above, and the benchmark I just ran in Samsung Magician, that the write speed has drastically improved.

I finally get the update.

Need to Open/Close Magician multiple times to get the Update on it.

Last Magician Software update on middle of march, implemented the "Full Power Mode" function, and i left enabled it (Which makes my 980 Pro hotter, without performance gain)
But the firmware update won't works with it, every time i get an error on updating firmware.
I disabled the Full Power Mode function, restart, and after a reboot, i finally get the update working.

Now i'm on the 3B2QGXA7 Firmware and my Speed is finally correct, hope, it will stay like that!

Well, looks like Samsung hit the nail on the head with this fix. I sure hope these write speeds hold up, and that it doesn't go back to abysmal speeds weeks later.

Well I guess I'm the unfortunate one here, 500GB on 3B2QGXA7, TRIMed before testing

I have a 980 PRO 2TB and it runs fast as new, check to see windows is fully updated and make sure no more than 75% of the SSD is used

I want to buy another 980 pro (2tb) like you, so i have to solve the issue using my 500gb before i buy it. How many percent is your 2TB filled to?
