    I have a 1TB Patriot Viper Gaming VP4100 Series (PCIe Gen4) NVMe M.2 SSD

    I have a ASUS ROG Strix X299-E Gaming II ATX Motherboard (which supports PCIe 3.0 x4 mode) w/ Intel® Core™ Processor i9

    The question: Am I losing anything or will there be any issues not running the SSD with AMD Ryzen?

    Link me to the actual product please.

    Not quite sure what you mean. If you don't use a SSD what will you use?

    Your post is not making any sense. The motherboard you listed is an intel type 2066 board. Why are you asking about a ryzen processor??? No way are you going to be able to install a ryzen processor in that board.

    Asus has a qvl list for M.2 drives;
    https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/..._VI_EXTREME_ENCORE/Intel_X299_DEVICE_QVL2.pdf

    Note just because a given drive is not on the list does not mean it will not work. It means it was never tested and found to work. With all of the M.2, SSDs, ram, etc on the market, it is impossible for a board mfg to test every piece of hardware.

    Do understand that the drive you linked to is a gen4 drive however your mb is only gen3 so you are not going to get the same read/write speeds. It will be fast; just not as fast as advertised.
