I am looking at the following motherboard - https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/Z490-AORUS-ULTRA-rev-1x#kf

 

It does not state if the PCIE slots are through the CPU or the PCH. However it does say that if you use both 16x slots, they both become x8. Does this mean it would have to be CPU since you can't split the lanes between the two? (As I am assuming they would be both CPU not both PCH with nothing on the CPU)

PCIEX16 and PCIEX8 are connected to the CPU as per the picture above.

My main rig doesn't have it in the manual so didn't know it was a thing. More manufacturers should it!
