    Tell us a little about the st2000dm008-2fr102.
    Did you bought it new, was it on another computer, did you ever initialize it or changed from MBR to GPT etc

    Please open a CMD window as administrator and type:
    fsutil fsinfo ntfsinfo c:

    Your score isn't very different from mine My WD1005FBYZ

    I'm sorry, but I don't know what an "st2000dm008-2fr102" or what MBR to GPT stands for/means.
    I did the command, here you goHDD Maxing out at 1 MBPS-sdh1ogrq_.png

    Your disk is a Seagate Barracuda code st2000dm008-2fr102.
    Everything seems normal to me.

    Flaw, you have a very powerful and good computer.
    With a MB that has M.2 slot that enables you to have NVMe SSDs that are almost 20 times faster than your HDD, why don't you install a small (256G) M.2 NVMe SSD for windows and programs and use the HDD for data only?
    It will boot in seconds and open programs at a blink of an eye.
    That is what I have. Mine boots in less than 20 sec.

    This is a bargain M.2 drive.

    I have one of those Seagates. This is the first 100gb on the disk:

    This is the last 500gb on the disk:

    If you shrink your windows partition to 100 -200gb instead of the 1800+ it is now, you might find a much higher score. You might ned to use a 3rd party partitioner. The rest of the disk can be used for for data partition(s)

    The 2G 980 PRO is very expensive and you will only see the difference from the one I posted on the benchmark test. And I don't know if you can take advantage of PCIe 4.0 maximum speed (for what I know only AMD can).
    My opinion is that you're spending money on something you won't use.

    I think it is the construction of the disk. A lot of programs claim it is an ssd. Unusually high data density, 2tb on one platter and consequently low power draw. I havent seen documentataion on how this disk is put together.
