Wondering if anyone has noticed something like this with a PC that has a PCI-e NMVE M.2 Drive.

The PC has a very slow network speed compared to other PCs at that location. When physically moved to a different spot in the building, the network speed picks up to be on par with the rest of the PCs. I’ve eliminated the network cable as an issue by making a brand new Cat6 cable and running it directly from the switch to the PC (bypassing any other equipment) and not seeing any changes.

The oddest thing, when we take a different PC from that location and plug it in where the problem machine is, then it slows down. Put the machine back where it came from and everything is fine.

So we are basically chasing our tails and this was brought up. Are M.2 PCI-e NVME drives susceptible to electromagnetic interference?

Or should we call an exorcist?
