TUF Gaming B650M-Plus + Crucial T700

I am wondering if my Crucial T700 M.2 drive is running at the right (maximum) speed, because I am experiencing long program load times. Therefore, I am not sure if I have the correct BIOS settings. The T700 drive is mounted in the M2-1 slot, and I have a second M.2  mounted in the M.2-2 slot (Kingston 2Tb). The BIOS M.2 slot setting for both drives is AUTO.
Windows cmd "winsat disk -ran -read -drive <drive>" reports 1521.13 mbps for drive C while drive D reports 2872.24 mbps
My questions are:

1. Will changing the BIOS M.2 slot setting to GEN5 increase disk transfer speed? 
2. I read that having a SSD in the m.2-1 slot will cut down the GPU to 8x. Does that influence the GPU performance in any way, or
3. is it better to move the T700 to the M.2-2 slot (and cutting down the speed to the lowest specced SSD)? 

current specs:
AMD 7 7700X
B650M-plus BIOS version 1636
ASUS RTX4070TI
32GB DDR5
