Very low drive write speeds on new PCIE drive

I recently bought a Gigabyte Areo 15X laptop and did a drive speed test today, the read seems fine but the write seems unusually low for a PCIE drive. Is there any reason for this or is the drive just slow, considering changing to a 970 evo around christmas but still would be nice to know for now.

It's a DRAMless drive....I guess this is the problem

 

If you want a new NVMe SSD, can consider those with SM2262 controller like Adata SX8200. However, most users will be fine with SATA SSD as 4k speeds are about the same between SATA and NVMe SSD (which matter the most for regular users). Runs much cooler too

It does have SLC caching though so that's definitely a bit low.... unless it's not enabled in the laptop or something

Buy whatever product is best for you, not what product is "best" for the market.

 

Interested in computer architecture? Still in middle or high school? P.M. me!

 

I love computer hardware and feel free to ask me anything about that (or phones). I especially like SSDs. But please do not ask me anything about Networking, programming, command line stuff, or any relatively hard software stuff. I know next to nothing about that.
