Hi Everyone. I just want to ask the regarding my 2 SSD's mentioned in the title. I have the attached CrystalDiskMark of my MX300 1TB M.2 and MX300 2TB which I notice is quite low.in the following below:
4k Read Write
4k Q32T1 Read Write
SEQ Read Write
I believe only the SEQ Q32T1 Read Write has a good status. My question is, is this normal? If not, how can I improve this? Are my laptop specs got something to do with this? I am using Lenovo p50 with 6770HQ processor and 64GB Crucial Memory (Coz I am using vmWare, I need more memory.)

They look fine to me. Especially for a laptop. What are you comparing them to? Note that we don't typically use CDM around here - AS SSD is more commonly used.
Laptops will generally benchmark lower than desktops. This doesn't mean there's anything wrong with the device.
Even though that's clearly a high end laptop - power efficiency will still matter for the sake of the battery whereas a desktop can sacrifice any sign of efficiency in favour of out and out performance.

I am comparing them to other SSD benchmarks found in the net. Here are some examples:
Now I tried AS SSD and attached here are my results
MX300 1TB M.2
Looking at this AS SSD Crucial MX300 2TB Benchmarks, my score is still quite low specially in 4K Write. So is this just because I am using a LAPTOP?

Yep. You can disable the chipset power saving features if you like. But I wouldn't recommend it. As well as costing battery life, you also lose the CPU's turbo boost function. Which will be a shame on such a shiny CPU!
Still, if you want to then let me know and I'll dig out the instructions.

Thanks for your reply. Although I do not plan to do what you've said today because you said that this is normal under laptop environment, can you provide me the link or instruction on how to do it?

As soon as I remember what search criteria brings it back I shall post it. I seem to be struggling to find it at the moment!

Note that according to friends who have tried, these do apply to newer chipsets than those quoted in the post. I haven't tried them myself due to the downsides stated previously.
