Hi I'm building a new system soon and looking at these two boards:
Asus ROG Strix Z490-A
Asus ROG Maximus XII Hero

Other than the fancier built in audio(which I won't use) and other fancy things am I missing out on much going with the Strix board? I like it because I'm going with a black/white build. I'm also planning on a m.2 ssd and a single 2080ti or 3080ti when they come out. Are both boards good in terms of pcie lanes? Also if I get a Gen4 m.2 ssd it will get scaled back to Gen3 speeds. However I'm thinking about a potential intel 11th gen cpu drop in upgrade when it's available and if it's compatible with LGA1200 then it should support Gen4 m.2 ssd speeds correct?

Appreciate the input.

I would wait for actual reviews to show up before buying anything in pre order...
