When I bought the Asus PN50 barebones I looked up all the specs and bought an 1 Tb Samsung 980 NVMe 3.0 x4 as Asus specified 3.0 x4 in the Asus support.
I have just run CPU-Z as shown below and this states I have a PCI-Express 4.0 (16.0 GT/s does this mean I could have installed a 4.0 and not 3.0 x4.
I have the original bios as there has been no updates since production.

Only Samsung 980 PRO is PCIe version 4.0, without Pro it's just v3.0.

It looks like you have read my question wrong, I didn't ask about the SSD I have fitted, my question was does my PN50-E1 support NVMe 4.0 as shown in the CPU-Z image. Cheers

Because of your processor, 3000 series and up have v.4.0 but may not be enabled by BIOS. Same story with my machine. Asus refuses to enable it
