NVMe Problems with Catalina

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm using Samsung 1TB 970 EVO (MZ-V7E1T0BW) NVMe. Everything has worked fine on Mojave for over a year. Now recently I made a clean install of Catalina and I'm having occasional panics related to NVMe.


Drive test is ok and I also flashed latest firmware but it's the same.


Is there some new NVMe problems in Catalina?

I wen't back to SSD, I never noticed any real world difference with Samsung SSD vs Samsung NVMe. Boot time went from about 20 sec with the NVMe to 8 sec on SSD, so clearly it doesn't work properly on macOS.

nah bro it's super fast, sata ssd won't even come close. Apple uses NVMe only in it's machines, last SATA was 2012.
