    Speed of the 5 M.2 Sockets on ROG Zenith II Extreme. which one is faster?

    Hi all,
    setting up a AMD rig. a bit of gaming and a bit of video processing. some virtualization too.
    ROG Zenith II Extreme is picked for the m.2 slots and 10g lan.

    Total of 5 m.2 drive can be installed. 3 on board and 2 on the DIMM.2 module.

    My 1st question is, what is the speed ranking of these m.2 slots?

    My understanding is that the 2 M.2 slots next to the PCI E talk to the CPU directly, they should be the fastest.
    The one at the back of the board is through the chipset, might be slower due to share PCI E lane with other things like sata and wireless etc.
    The 2 slots on the DIMM.2 talk to the CPU directly like RAM?

    Highest Speed is M.2_1 and M.2_2, then DIMM.2, then the one at the back of the card?

    2nd question. is the order below the optimal option?

    Fastest slot: OS
    2nd fastest: video editing scratch
    3rd: App and games
    4th: Video source
    5th: Video output

    Thanks guys. Cheers
