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.
