Question Why do the USB C ports on my MSI Z390 Godlike run at 2.0 speeds?

I've checked the website and they are supposed to be 3.1

I would settle for any USB3 speeds but they read and write at 40mb/s and are recognized in the USBtreeview program as USB 2

I have removed the drivers of all my USB slots and even just did a BIOS update. Installed the official drivers from the MSI website. I checked the motherboard diagram and I don't think I'm even using the optional plug in for the USB 2.0 ports that are available on the board.

Both the USB C right on the faceplate of the motherboard and the one on my case that is connected via the USB3 cable have this issue.

Anyone able to help?
