Typically, Z390 is a high end platform that supersedes the z370. However the z370 can in some cases (depending on BIOS level and manufacturing support) also support the 9th generation Intel CPU.

There is very little difference between z370 and z390 from a features perspective, however some z390 boards tend to have an improved power delivery system to support the 9th gen Intel CPU's.
 


Z390 will have better voltage regulation capabilities to support 8 core 9th gen intel processors.
If you can get one at the same price as Z370 that is good.

Yes, that mobo supports a 9900K, but only as long as it has an up to date BIOS.

What do you mean 9th generation mobo? In 4-5 years a 9900k will be 4-5 years old, by then it'd probably make sense to just a new mobo and CPU.
