How concerned should I be with CRC Error Count increasing with Samsung EVO?

I bought two Samsung 870 EVO 250 GB SSD for two AMD computers. One motherboard is based on AMD SB850 chipset and the other AMD SB710 chipset. The Samsung EVOs are experiencing CRC Error Counts especially when running disc benchmarks. It is not a SATA cable issue as I have swapped it several times and the cables work without issues with harddrives. I have read threads dating back three years with this same issue with Samsung and AMD SATA controllers. There doesn't appear to be any remedy short of crippling performance by disabling NCQ. Can I ignore the CRC Error if I don't notice any performance issues or will this lead to permanent damage? Samsung doesn't appear to be bothered if this has been going on for several years.

can you show the smart page of your ssd (ideally in decimal, use HDD Sentinel right click and tick decimal on the smart tab page so it shows numbers not hex) and take a screenshot of that and post it on here

If you didn´t...update the chipset drivers first.
....Try the Standard AHCI controllers of windows and check the drive with the samsung app.
I don´t no why but AMD sata controllers don´t work well. I had a similar issue with the amd controllers on my x399 mobo.
My drives performed at half speed and gave me errors with the amd controllers.
Change all the controllors to standard AHCI

I have concluded the Samsung EVO is not compatible with AMD motherboard. I have replaced it with a Crucial MX500 which shows no error.

Your conclusion is false. I've used several Samsung EVO and EVO Plus drives with AMD chipset based motherboards with zero problems. Your logic, is flawed.
