    NUC6i7kyk Skull Canyon and Samsung T3


      I have the Intel NUC6i7kyk Skull Canyon and a Samsung T3 500GB SSD external drive.


      Plugging the T3 into a NUC USB 3.0 port I get speeds of over 300MB/s


      Plugging the T3 into the NUC 3.1 Type C Thunderbolt / USB 3.1 Gen 2 port I get speeds of 34MB/s


      The T3 is a USB 3.1 Gen 1 device using a Type C connection.  The drive port is a Type C connection and the included cable is Type C to Type A.

      I'm using a Type C to Type C cable for testing that came with my Nexus 6P phone.


      I was expecting USB 3.1 Gen 1 speeds... and so... the same as the other NUC 3.0 ports.


      Does that sound right?  I'm using the latest BIOS... 0035... and all the latest drivers.
