You may want to look at faster and high capacity drives
The Aura Pro X2 are NVMe type but use the PCIe 3.1 standard but x4 link, while you screen shot shows only x2 link speed, which accounts for some of the speed shortcoming. The NVMe type SSDs have less latency than the old type.

If you decide to upgrade the SSD, I do not recommend the OWC drives because they are so expensive. You are better off getting a NVMe adapter and NVMe drive. This allows you to easily re-purpose the drive in another Mac or PC.
