Next CUD resulted in me getting a Adata XPG 1tb NVME.
Now just to figure out how to enable something like Samsung's Rapid mode on this nvme (without having to buy a program).
Speed results comparing Adata - Left to my Samsung Evo 850 Sata SSD - Right

how can a SATA SSD perform that?

or did you try and fool us by switching the drive back to the SATA SSD after doing a test on an NVMe drive? :p

Samsung Rapid is basically just ram cache for your drive, so it's not really a test on drive speed, but rather ram speed. especially if you have enough ram for it to do the test entirely in the cache...
So just a bit sneaky if you have the spare ram for it.
Granted even 2gb 'spare' ram would work quite well.
Just read up on when this will and will not work...
