I'm wanting to add an NVMe SSD to my Omen 30L GT13-1094 (AMD 5800x). Does the m.2 slot directly below the CPU support the faster gen 4 NVMe cards? I'm assuming the second m.2 (beneath the GPU) is gen 3.
Specs say the motherboard is a B550 so I'm assuming there's at least one gen 4 m.2, but I can't find this confirmed anywhere. There's no detailed description or diagram of this MB's slots.
Any help would be much appreciated!

Did you ever get an answer for this, I have the same PC and am looking to install a second NVMe SSD and can't find out where the port is ... I want to know what I am doing before I start taking things apart
Is there a picture of this motherboard pointing out where the slots are??

Pretty sure SSD2 is just a Gen 3 slot, nothing specified anywhere else that I could find. Also the box is misleading saying there are 3 M.2 slots, which there are, but one being filled I originally assumed I would have two more slots available to ues for storage. Nope. One of the slots is a socket 1 for the wireless/bluetooth combo card installed. Thought I would post a pic of the motherboard with the graphics card removed. The second available M.2 slot is hidden under a black plastic cover marked SSD2. I could not use the cover over the top of the drive that I installed as it was too wide, so I am assuming the cover is to be discarded when you install a new drive in its slot. Hope that helps. Also if anyone is struggling with the side cover removal, there is a large square button on the back side near the top that you push in, and the top of the side cover pulls away from the case and pull up. Took me a hot second to figure that one out. Seems like a nice toolless feature. Good luck.
