Surprised at slower performance of 970 Evo Plus NVMe M.2 vs older 960 Evo NVME M.2

Hi, I have just installed the 970 Evo plus on the second M.2 slot of my ASUS STRIX z370-F Motherboard and am quite surprised at how low the speeds seem to be.  They certainly don't look like what is advertised and other test results I am seeing online.

And now the new 970 Plus

Can anyone advise?

 

Many thanks.

Solved:  Bit of a noob here but after look at issue it was because the M.2 2 on the mobo was set x2 instead of x4
