    I was debating, if I should post the resolution, since the issue turned out to be the end users...

    When the BIOS version changed, the configuration is changed to default. The default NVMe settings for the Asus Prime Z370-A is PCIe x4 for one M.2 and the other is PCIe x2. I did change the setting about two month ego and it slipped my mind.

    A quick reboot, change the BIOS settings and the system is back to its original performance...

    Asus tech support actually replied in about four hours, not bad at all. I just wish that their suggested remediation was accurate...

    The first suggested fix for this issue was, quote:

    The link provided for clearing the CMOS is for the 3-pin CLRTC, but the Asus Prime Z370-A motherboard has two 2-pin for this purpose. While clearing the CMOS with the 2-pin is easy, I have a question. Updating the BIOS will clear the CMOS, does it not? And if it does, why would manually doing so change anything?

    The second suggested fix was for revert the BIOS, quote:

    The "may try to use" portion does not give me much confidence. Will it actually work, or just hose the system? I've done BIOS updates a number of times, but never revert it to older version. Is that something that carries no risks?
    I reverted my Bios on the Maximus X Apex and it works just fine.
