Evaluating systems with NVMe devices
NVMe configurations: NVMe devices may show lower than expected performance in some
configurations due to the way Force Unit Access (FUA) write requests are handled by the
Windows operating system. Therefore, BAPCo recommends that users install the storage driver
provided by the manufacturer of their NVMe device. In cases where the manufacturer does not
provide an NVMe driver, users may disable the ‘Windows Write cache buffer flushing’ setting on
the NVMe drive prior to testing.
