    Why did we need confirmation?
    Intel is doing what it has done for as long as I can remember,2 gens of CPU's with a board,even if the new board doesn't add anything they still force you if you are an
    Intel follower.

    How am i supposed to use the extra 4 pci express lanes that rocket lake will offer on a z490? Today we have still 16 from comet lake, right?

    from the video with Ian from Andantech and level1techs youtube I think they explain some motherboards will have a dedicated M.2 nvme slot 4.0 slot to use the added pcie lanes
    or something like that
    I read nothing about comet lake I use 10+ USBs 6x SSds 3x Nvme 10Gbe network and need free pcie bandwith for other cards so 16 cpu lanes is not even half of what I use

    Z boards now offer plenty extra since Z3xx, 40 total with CPU's 16. What you are going to miss is PCIE 4.0

    edit: so basicaly Z4xx should be entirely skipped If you care about pcie 4.0 , but you probably shouldn't. :rolleyes:o_O
