hi i have motherboard z390 aorus ultra PCIe 3 if i bought ssd gen 4 does it work with this motherboard or i have to buy new one that support this slot hope to reply me asap
 
Assuming you're talking about an NVME SSD drive which will install in an M.2 socket the first thing to be sure of is that the motherboard has an appropriately keyed M.2 slot for it to fit into.

On that assumption, it should negotiate the highest PCIe bandwidth that both devices support so it will operate at gen 3 speed.

thanks for you reply so it’ll work but not in same speed
 
Not entirely...also on a TRX40 motherboard with TR-3000 CPU. ;)

And BTW...even a Gen 4 capable add in controller (if they have such a thing yet) wouldn't work since everything would be limited to the Gen 3 bandwidth of the PCIe slot.
TR-3000 CPU is actually Ryzen 3rd gen. with many more PCIe lines and no, any device or adapter with PCIe 3.0 is not going to work any faster in PCIe 4.0 lanes.
