Not getting full speed on NVME
Hello. I just bought my first NVME and I'm having an issue with the benchmarking. I'm supposed to get 3500/3200MB/s read/write but I'm getting 816/747. I'm guessing it's because my motherboard is outdated (MSI Z97S SLI Krait Edition) but I thought it would be fine since pcpartpicker didn't say anything about speed limitation. Only that one SATA express port would be disabled. The NVME I got is an Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB. So if my motherboard doesnt support full speed, is there any way to make it full speed without a new motherboard? I did a quick google search and found some people talking about an adapter or something of the sort.
EDIT: Here is the exact thing pcpartpicker said "The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with a SATA Express port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA Express port is disabled."
