    Question Z370 on Hero/Formula with 8700K and NVMe drives in regard to PCIE lanes - clarify pls

    I need some clarification on this:

    I'm planning to build an 8700K machine on an Maximus X board (any) but I'm not sure about usability since I plan on using two GTX TITAN V cards, two Intel 900P NVMe drives or a single Intel 900P and a Samsung 960 Pro M2 drive.

    No, I know there is no SLI for those Titans, but I don't need SLI, just two cards (rendering).

    Since 8700K provides only 16 PCIE lanes, I assume dual TITAN Vs will split dual PCIE slots into x8 + x8, which is fine. But, what about my Intel drives or Intel + Samsung? Those can run on a PCH which has only a single x4 connection to the CPU so actually, the only available performance to the whole PCH is x4 level and I can use only a single NVMe drive concurrently, not more.

    Right?
