Have to say, I'm pretty happy! A little surprised that the Intel NVMe is about the same speed as the traditional Intel SATA.
@TheCaptain989 it is possible for a m.2 form factor SSD to operate in AHCI mode over SATA. Are you sure it's a true NVME drive (which runs directly over PCI-E) or is it just an m.2 form factor?

That would explain why it's hitting the limits of SATA 3.
