    I'm not sure why people are saying the other slot is x2. The documentation says it's x4, and the speed tests show it's x4. x2 lanes of pcie 3 is going to see a max speed of under 2000. I don't know what is going on with your read speed though.

    Well, I get to the conclusion that both slots are same regarding speeds.

    My problem is the seq read speed being half the write one.

    I will test the 970 EVO on a desktop and test another m.2 NVMe on both laptop slots...

    Odd, I have no issues with my SX8200's read speeds. Are you using the Samsung NVMe driver?

    Any chance you can post a photo, or draw some annotations on top of an existing photo? Thank you.

    I think I'm ready to flash the EC update. Does anyone remember which of these is/are the file(s)?

    I bought and am currently typing on my OP15+ with an asus 180W charger. It works perfectly and I am happy and thankful a user posted a nice summary of alternative chargers about 10 pages back. (sorry dont know the post number) Please see his post for an exhaustive and informative list! paid 40 for an asus branded vs the "OEM" brand that the OP came with. Probably all the same and manufactured with the same level of QC.

    Have you tried updating the firmware of the 970? I am running a humble Samsung PM961 256GB in the slot near the fan. My speed test looks good. I'm not using the Samsung driver (not sure if it would even do anything with the PM961 anyway).

    What BIOS are you on? The file you want to flash the EC is not in your picture (unless you edit the bat and put in the correct options). You should head over to page 109 and download the file there for it. He includes a bat for the EC there (assuming you are updating to new newest offered from OP).
