T470 Toshiba NVMe 512G SSD drivers

2017-12-23, 0:20 AM

Hi everyone, I recently bought a T470 and it came with a Toshiba 512GB Nvme drive (I think its XG4). Just wondering if those of you with this drive are using the default windows drivers or the drivers made for the OCZ-RD400 drive as shown in this thread (https://www.win-raid.com/t29f25-Recommended-AHCI-RAID-and-NVMe-Drivers.html).

I have read some comments on how there is poorer performance on this drive compared to the Samsung PM961 drive and I was wondering if you guys have noticed the same with the T470.

Thanks for your input

Hi, even if it is now maybe too late for the original post, but for future reference, just note that I have successfully tested the OCZ-RD400 driver in a T470 with the TOSHIBA XG5 256GB drive. It works flawless and gives a bit more performance than the microsoft one (maybe 10% or so better as per Crystal Diskmarks scores in some tests).
