Default samsung 950 pro ssd m2 slot-which mobo?

the new samsung 950 pro m2 slot SSD is coming out this week and i want to use it as the boot drive.I want to get full functionality out of it and was told that i should get the ASROCK EXTREME 6 USB 3.1 mobo as it has an ultra m2 slot that uses the 3.0x4 thats needed,but i looked on the manual for the asrock extreme 6 mobo and it says if that m2 slot is used,the 2 PCI EXPRESS slots go from 3.0x16 and 3.0x8----down to 3.0x8 and 3.0x4.Now i have an ASUS strix 980 ti GPU i want to use,but i know its 3.0x16.
So my question is,will my GPU work?or will the performance be decreased?...if so,is it a noticable deifference?
Also,does anyone know what other mobo's can be used with the 950 pro to get full functionality?So far all i heard was that asrock is teh only company up to date with it.Like i sen asus hero has an m2 slot,but its only good for 10 gigs/second...where as the 950 pro uses like 32 gigs/second.
please help!!! thank you for any recommendations in advance!

This may help.

You will need to ask elsewhere if you have further questions as this forum is only for Corsair products.
