Is it Correct ???? that
Those who are thinking that they can use a graphics card and M.2 NVME simultaneously on MSI B450 Tomahawk MAX... then it is not possible on this motherboard you can use only one, either M.2 NVME or graphic card.

Please clarify on that.

It's complete nonsense. Here is the block diagram of that board

As you can see, the graphics card is seperate from the M.2 slot, they each use their own PCIe lanes.

The APUs like 3200G for example have a few less PCIe 3.0 lanes, because of the internal graphics. But that just means that the graphics card slot runs at PCIE 3.0 x8, and you can still use both a graphics card and an NVME SSD.
