[Lenovo Y700-15ISK] High Performance NVMe SSD capped at PCIE 2.0 speeds

2016-12-23, 18:21 PM

There is a full article on this at http://www.geektech.co.nz/high-performance-nvme-ssd-capped-at-pcie-2-0-speeds-y700

 

I have just purchased a Samsung SM961 SSD which is capable of reading up to 3GB/s. I could confirmed at the SSD speed is capped at about 1.6GB/s on Lenovo Y700-15ISK.

 

Lenovo please release a BIOS update to unlock NVMe SSD speed.

If modifying that can cause trouble, please let us have the BIOS firmware source code, so that we can modify it ourselves.

I also confirm.

I recently purchased 960 EVO 500GB. Speed is capped.

It's a pity to have a fast SSD but the speed to be limited.

 

Lenovo please fix this.

I guess we need to wait until there are more people raising this issue.
