Hi, I am building a high end workstation for 4K gaming. I want to play games and watch videos with Dobly Atmos. I cannot find any Z390 motherboard that has a sound chip to support Atmos. What do I need besides buying a soundbar and/or speakers?

You'll probably want an atmos enabled receiver. Recommendations would depend on budget, how many speakers you're looking at installing, and the speakers you are planning on using

Thanks. Am I correct that if I buy a soundbar such as the Sony HT-X9000F or the Samsung HW-N950, I don't need a receiver? How are these two compared with the SoundBlaster X Katana and Dolby Dimensions? As far as I know, the Katana does not support Atmos but it simulates some kind of immersion. Not sure if it is as good as the other three devices I mention here.

Yep, those sound bars don't need a receiver, though I have no idea about how those sound bars/headphones compare.
