After updating Magician to 7.1.1, my M2 SSD 970 EVO went unusually slow. In benchmarks it used to be around 3.5 Gbps in reading (Magician benchmark), after the update it was only 600 Mbps. The PC was horribly low and unusable.
I tried various things (restart, check bios, remove latest Windows 11 updates), but actually it went back to normal after deinstalling Magician and reinstalling version 7.1.0 + restart. So this latest version is introducing a big issue !! I'm surprised that no one reported that issue before.
Note that the microcode version of the SSD didn't change, it's the latest (2B2QEXM7).
