Question USB 3.0 ports are only recognized as 2.0 and haves lower speeds ASUS

Feb 10, 2021
Hi guys,
I am currently using an ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X HERO and have the following issue: It seems I am not able to run USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 Gen 2 Ports at their respective speeds.

Tree Viewer shows me that the device is only connected in High-Speed (which the small H stands for), while SuperSpeed is allegedly avaliable on the 'Companion Port': View:

I actually spent alot of time on the issue and tried everything from updating the Chipset and Asmedia drivers to deleting the USB Root Hubs and rebooting afterwards. I even saw some posts that assumed a registry entry would work (which unfortunately did not). So far I could not solve this issue.
I would be really glad if anyone could help.
