m17 R3, WD SSD Black SN750, reading/writing speed

I installed the Western Digital Black SN750 1TB SSD on the Alienware m17 R3 laptop. I only get 2800 Mb/s read/write speed where the drive advertise 3500Mb/s.  

Are laptops slower? Or something wrong with my setup?

Thanks for getting back to me.

Update your bios to the latest version and see if that works. Update all your drivers aswell.
