How to maximize samsung 960 evo

I recently built a system with the following components:


ASROCK AB350 PRO4 ATX Motherboard

AMD Ryzen 5 2400G

Samsung 960 EVO 500 GB M.2 SSD

16 GB Crucial DDR4-2400 RAM


The Samsung documentation shows the drive being capable of up to 3,500 MB/s read speeds. However, a benchmarking application shows the read speed in the 1,850-1,870 MB/s range.


Is there any way to improve the performance of the SSD in this system?

If not then what CPU / MB would I need to purchase to get closer to the maximum read speed - say 3,000 - 3,500 MB/s ?


Thank you!
