Very slow performance on new Inland Performance 2TB SSD 3D NAND M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe 4.0 x4

I purchased this PCIe 4 SSD in August and it never seemed much faster than my old SSDs.  Today I finally ran it through a few benchmarks and it scores extremely low.  I do have PCIe 4 as I have a Asus ROG STRIX X570-E GAMING motherboard paired with an AMD 3900x.  This 2tb SSD is about half full and is used as my main C: drive w/ Win10 installed.  
When using, I get an average of 2000 MB/s read / 3400 MB/s write.  This is more resembles PCIe v3 speeds.  CrystalDiskMark seems to indicate that read speeds are good, but write speeds hit a max of 980 MB/s!  I am using the heatsink that came w/ this drive.  I didn't see anything in the bios to configure this drive and it works fine, except for the speed.  Any ideas?


  • I run the 1TB version of this drive with the same motherboard and CPU. It certainly does sound like it's under performing. You should not need to adjust any BIOS setting to optimized the performance of your drive. Could you post your CrystalMark results here?
  • I also have issues with the Inland drive, in my case it is a 1TB model.  I have ordered and it is on the way.  Passmark's benchmark shows read values around 2600 and write of 480.  Crystal diskmark shows values of 4970 and 1070 for read/write respectively.  At this point I am about to declare that the Inland drives are a piece of crap and will review it as such.  IMHO these are the worst supported drives I have ever seen.
  • @stalag Which CrystalMark test did you run on the drive you mentioned? I've not had had issues with the drive that I own personally, but you're definitely right to voice your opinion as you see fit.
  • The latest build of crystal disk mark. I have been building computers for 30 years. The last time I had a drive failure in less than a year was 25 years ago 
  • Mind sharing a screencap of your results here? I'd be interested in seeing them and I'd be happy to share them.
    If you could provide the rest of your system specs as well. That'd be great!
    Based on the speeds you mention above it does seem to be underperforming in write speed. However, the drive is covered by a 3-year warranty.
