    If you do choose to run both PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slots, the graphics card's lane width has to be manually adjusted in the BIOS to x8 - all lanes come from the CPU. If you don't, the secondary M.2 slot doesn't show up. On a better note, the two PCIe 3.0 M.2 slots have the rather good Q-Latch connector that locks them into place without the need to fiddle with tiny screws.
    So is this a limitation of the amount of PCIe lanes, or is it a case of Asus has added more M.2 slots than can be supported all at once?

    Given the demise of Crossfire and SLI for any real mainstream or even general high end use, these mobos seem to be shipping with PCI-e slots which just aren't going to be used.

    Another reason that ITX is the future.

    I think there are still plenty of applications for high-bandwidth PCIe slots - high resolution capture cards or additional NVMe M.2 adapter cards, for example. Of course not everyone needs such expansion, but that's why there are different form-factor motherboards
