Oooops. This calculation error is not typical for my testing (I think ;-)).
Summarizing the two facts of note: the write result is 1/4 of what you should be getting, and you are running 1 driver behind the firmware.
You might update your driver, rerun the test, and if you still have the slow result, verify that your filesystem isn’t fragmented (multiple undisciplined apps on the same filesystem will do that).
WAL on a separate disk, on a separate controller? What is the write performance there?
