SSD speed drops dramatically from 7000 MB/s to 3000 MB/s, and in special cases to 1000 MB/s

Microsoft regularly releases updates for PCs based on Windows 11, and not all of these updates can be abandoned. Beginning in March 2023, users who installed the monthly mandatory updates began experiencing slowdowns in their computers, including longer boot times and slower SSDs.

Complaints about the problem appeared on forums, social networks, Microsoft support and other online platforms. It is noted that the PC may run slower when you are trying to perform SSD-intensive tasks, such as copying large files from one place to another, or playing a large game.

Some users have reported a drastic drop in SSD speed from 7000MB/s to 3000MB/s, and in special cases down to 1000MB/s.

The problems started with the launch of the March update KB5023778, and they are also observed in the most recent, mandatory June update KB5027231. As noted by the thematic resource WindowsLatest, which conducted its own investigation, the problem will be present in the upcoming traditional July “update on Tuesdays” (Patch Tuesday), as it remains unresolved in the optional June 2023 update (under the number KB5027303).

Uninstalling updates starting with the March 2023 Patch Tuesday restores the SSD speed to its previous 7000 MB/s. This means that the problem may be directly related to the latest updates.
