Hi,

I was inquiring about if an NVMe 4.0 Gen4 PCIe M.2 would work to its full potential on an ASUS ROG Crosshair hero X370 mobo.

From what I understand the X570 will support PCIe 4.0 so how does this affect users like me?

I'm willing to purchase one for an upgrade even it won't utilize the 4.0 I'm also curious on how this effect PCIe lanes when it says 4.0 x4 meaning it will take up 4 PCIe lanes?

Ah okay, also how does this have to do with PCIe lanes? x4 means it takes up 4 lanes right? does that render 4 out of the 32 lanes on my mobo in use ?
