I'm looking to buy a Samsung 980 PRO SSD which is PCIe 4. I'd pair it with a Ryzen 5600G CPU because I want integrated graphics (not a gaming build). They'd go on an AM4 MOBO, but the thing is that the CPU is only PCIe 3.

My question is: will the PCIe 3 CPU "force" the PCIe 4 SSD to also function only at PCIe 3 capabilities?

Thanks!
