    Intel 540s 1TB SSD reporting 512 BPS and BPPS rather than 4,096

      I installed a new Intel 540s 1TB SSD into a new Dell OptiPlex 3040.  It is the only drive in the PC.  The drive had firmware LSBG200 on it when I received it, but I updated it to the latest firmware (036C) immediately.  I installed Windows 10 Pro x64 on it using the latest installation media publicly available from Microsoft's site.

       

      The command "fsutil fsinfo ntfsinfo c:" reports "Bytes Per Sector: 512" and "Bytes Per Physical Sector: 512."  I guess I am surprised to see it reporting 512.  I would think it would be showing 4,096 for both of those values.

       

      Any thoughts?

      Thanks.
