I am trying to figure out why my SSD's are running so slow (I purchased two 500gb Extreme SSD's). Connected to both USB-C and USB-A 3.1 ports on an Asus Rog Strix X470-F motherboard, both types of 3.1 ports are listing the following speeds on CrystalDiskMark 6.0.2 x64:
These are nowhere near the advertised *Up to* 500MB/s
Is there a firmware update or something that I am missing. I truly don't understand how they can be running so slow. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That is not normal.
I think SanDisk's problems are too little that posts here just get's ignored.
If not for the water resistance, I would have just bought an M.2 drive and put
it in an enclosure.

Is that the speed you are getting from yours? Something is definitely wrong with mine if that is the case. I can't believe I've never gotten a response from Sandisk either. Lesson learned for me I guess.

Are you using the included USB-C to USB-A 3.0 cable? When I use the included cable I achieve the advertised speed.
When I use another USB-C to USB-A (likely 2.0) cable I do not. I think that may be your issue.
