my ipv6 speeds are slower than ipv4

So I recently just setup ipv6 on my router, but the speeds seem to be lacking compared to ipv4. I'll give some details below of my equipment and service.

 

Modem: Netgear CM1200

Router: Netgear Nighthawk R7000P

ISP: Comcast - Gigabit

 

When on ipv6, my xfinity speedtest hits around 657 Mbps. But if I turn off ipv6 (within my windows network adapter), my ipv4 speeds hit around 945 Mbps. I will post more information down below.

 

Speed test I used: https://speedtest.xfinity.com/

I got 10/10 on this site: https://test-ipv6.com/

 

And  here are some screenshots of my results, as well as my ipv6 setup within my router.

For my router, I intially had chosen Auto-detect, in which it choose DHCP for me. As you can see, I also changed my DNS to cloudflares 1.1.1.1.

 

Thanks for any help on this issue.
