Dell XPS 13 9350 NVM PM951 Drivers Question

Out of curiosity, has anyone replaced with the Windows 10 Disk Drive and Storage Controller drivers (Microsoft version) with anything from Samsung for this drive?  I read that it can be done, and that it might increase performance.  If so, how did you install it and what driver files did you use (the installer from Samsung doesn't work).

I would also be interested in the answer to this.

I think there are new drivers for the 960 which may be used on the SM951, but would really like a dedicated driver for the PM951.

Any suggestions / customised drivers from Dell support?

Hi, That doesn't help much, it's a year out of date, and no mention of Samsung's NVMe 2+ driver updates (2.2 as of March 2017).

The above also doesn't seem to apply unfortunately since they claim it is only for 960 Pro and Evo and 950 Pro.

Doesn't seem to be any way to know if they work on the PM951 the original poster mentioned. I do know that Samsung won't support it through their program Magician either as they claim it is an OEM drive that they don't directly sell, which seems a bit weird.
