Users report slowing down of Windows 11 and NVMe SSD. If you notice that your drive is not as fast as before, and you recently switched to Windows 11, it may be your problem.


When it comes to computer upgrades, NVMe SSDs are one of the most significant changes you can make in terms of raw speed. However, some users find that the drive speed drops after installing Windows 11. Between Reddit posts and Microsoft support forum posts (h/t Neowin), there are many users complaining about NVMe issues.


According to a benchmark test shared by user MahtiDruidi on Reddit, compared to Windows 11, the performance of the same drive on Windows 10 drops significantly.


More interestingly, it seems to only affect drives with Windows 11 installed. A user named PleasedPen25317 on the Microsoft Support Forum found that testing the auxiliary drive on the same machine showed that only the Windows 11 drive was slow.


Interestingly, these complaints are not new, because users reported issues with SSD and Windows 11 during the beta version of the operating system, but now more and more people are upgrading to the final release version of Windows 11. These complaints reappear.


Hope that Microsoft can solve this SSD problem, because users spend a lot of money to get the speed provided by NVMe SSD, and causing them to lose the speed of the operating system is a major issue that needs to be solved.
