Do not worry about pcie 3/4.
It impacts sequential processing which is already very good at pcie 3.
Also realize that synthetic benchmark reviews are done on new drives which is faster than when a drive has been used and nand blocks are filled.

It is small random I/O that a ssd does best. Windows does that 90% of the time.

I think most Z490 based motherboards have announced intention via a bios update to support future rocket lake processors and perhaps pcie 4.0 as well.
Do some research to see what ASUS intends for your motherboard.

Intel's current 10th gen CPUs do not support PCI-e 4.0, so you will have to live with 'only' about 3500 MB/sec sequential reads/writes. (The real world differences in system boot/shutdown times/file copies, transfers, etc., are much less extreme than the 'twice as fast' sounding spec would imply.) SUmmary: CrystalDiskMark shows great numbers, real world differences show a second or two knocked off here and there...
