Question Gigabyte GC-4XM2G4 (AORUS Gen4 AIC Adaptor) - Need to hit maximum speed with 8TB SSD total storage

Need 4x quantity of Gen4 SSD's to get the 19,000mbps write / 15,000mbps read results as seen below.
Which best option AMD or Intel motherboard and SSD's do I need to be able to achieve this and will I need RAID's on the card?

Price or new build is not an issue, just need proven or near-close guaranteed results on the read / write scenario.
This is for benchmarking and I just want the fastest read/write at this moment as of Jan 2021.

Been trying to google the replication of, but can't find anything that anyone actually duplicated to get these results.

at this moment either or due to no cards with bifurcation will natively run PCIE-4.0.

And yes you need to Raid-0 on them.
So i change my recommendation if you need it bootable or not.
As AMD will allow Boot option for R0 Nvme, while i believe intel makes you pay a DLC hardware cost on boards which allow bifurcation known as a VROC key to allow it to boot in R0.

EDIT: I guess this is what i get for not reading the product carefully...
That Card claims to be a 4.0 pci-e card... but i have not heard of ANY 4.0 pci-e bifurcation cards out yet.
That leads me to believe i think they mean 4.0 nVME and 4.0 bifurcation, as i really do not believe Gigabyte would release one for consumers before the enterprise sector had one.

But if it is a 4.0 you need to put in a 4.0 slot, and make sure that slot can again do bifurcation.
That means you would need a 570 or a 550 class board and would need to give up that first slot which normally a GPU would go into, for that card so you can the max out it.

I would think you could also do a Zen 2 based threadripper build.
