I just installed a 980 EVO Pro in my laptop and it works great even though my laptop is PCIE 3.0 x 4. I get 3.5 Gbps read and 3.4 Gbps write, one small thing though. I can only get it to work using the Standard NVME express driver from Microsoft.
Because if I look at website https://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/download/tools/ It says " This driver supports Samsung NVMe SSD 970 PRO, 970 EVO, 970 EVO Plus, 960 PRO, 960 EVO and 950 PRO."
Meaning no Samsung driver for the 980 EVO plus? Is this drive meant to be run using the Microsoft driver? Or will the Samsung NVME driver be updated to include support for 980 EVO pro? Anyway if I try to install the current version of the Samsung NVME driver I get the following error.
I have reset the bios on the laptop to default settings, so I guess this must be a driver error? So any news when and if Samsung will release an updated driver for the 980 EVO pro?

In 2019 I got a Gear Active 2 for Christmas and its by far a great watch, however I have waited an entire year for the promised ECG/Fall-detection update, and it arrived as OTA update in late October here in Scandinavia. However one thing puzzels me, the ECG feature is missing and update contained the fall-detection update and some small menu changes.
I tried to reset the watch several times afterwards, but feature isn't there. I even wrote to Samsung Denmark on Facebook, and they couldn't give me an answer. Have Samsung disabled the promised ECG feature for the Active 2 for Scandinavian countries? Any who can confirm or deny this?

I have an Asus UX490UA runing latest Windows 10 Pro 64 - bit laptop which was born with a SAMSUNG NVME drive. After two years of use I decided to upgrade it to the more modern Samsung EVO 970 plus 1 tb drive, but there is an issue: speed.
The machine has an M2-slot which runs PCIE 3.0 x4 (like my Z390 based desktop), but in my laptop I only get 1800 Read and 1731 write, thats about 50 % less than the drive gets if I plug it into my desktop second M2 slot (It runs 970 EVO plus as well). I have installed all the latest drivers on my laptop and AHCI mode enabled by default (IDE or RAID cannot be selected in BIOS).
Since the machine isn't SATA based (its only drive is the NVME) I am unable to install the Windows AHCI driver, and or the RST driver. The drive is installed in a Thermic heatsink inclosure which the original also was. So what could be causing this speed reduction?
A ) Chipset limitation?
B) Lack of AHCI driver?
C) Something else?
p.s. Have tried to install the drive without the "heatsink" and it still runs at 50 %, have all the latest drivers installed except (AHCI and RST which I cannot install to to lack of extra internal SATA drive).
p.p.s. Drive runs at full speed if I install it in my Z390 based Windows 10 DESKTOP machine.
