Default MP510(960GB) Slow/inconsistent Write Speeds

I have reviewed the posts regarding the MP600 write speed issues and I seem to be experiencing the exact same issue on my M2 Mp510.

When I first got the drive, I consistently got the same speeds as per the specifications of the drive. I still have the same Win10 install which is around 1 year old.

Spec:
i7-8700k @ Stock
16GB (2x8gb) Corsair Vengeance 3000mhz
Gigabyte Z390M Gaming
Corsair MP510 960GB (362GB Free / 40c under load)

Things done/checked:
TRIM Enabled (also ran Optimize-Volume on the drive)
Updated Motherboard drivers
Updated MP510 firmware via Toolbox
Updated Motherboard BIOS to latest
Left computer off so that the drive cooled down, then tried ATTO again when drive was cooler

I'm stumped now and it looks identical to the issues the MP600 users are having. Any ideas?

same to me. After 1 year of use (378GB free of 893 - according to Windows)

the write speed lowered from

This is reproducable with other tools. Is this an RMA issue?

I am having the exact same issue and its extremely annoying!

At first the write speeds were great but after a year of on/off usage they are shocking.

Some solutions that have worked for others:

If you're on AMD Ryzen, check your power plan settings and turn off PCI-Express Link State Power Management

Uninstall/reinstall the device driver for your SSD using device manager (assuming that you're not using the SSD as your OS drive which would require a fresh install of Windows to work around).

Additional info that may be useful: SSD performance does degrade as the drive gets more full, here's an article that explains the topic a bit more: https://www.anandtech.com/show/6489/playing-with-op (note that this article is from 2012 and they test SATA SSDs, NVMe SSDs may show a more noticeable dip in performance earlier as they aren't bottle-necked by the SATA interface).

I suggest reaching out to our technical support team at https://help.corsair.com for further assistance.

Update: I've also reached out to our SSD team to see if they have any additional information that can be of help.

Looks like there are multiple threads going regarding this.
I get that drive performance decreases as it fills up, but keeping a drive half full just to keep it up to near advertised speeds is not a good thing.

I understand your concern. I've forwarded everything I've seen so far to our product team to evaluate.

For anybody experiencing this still. Could you post results before and after disabling fast startup within Windows? Please let me know your results in the responses.

To disable fast startup within Windows, do the following:
