These are the downsides of mainstream CPUs... they just don't have enough lanes. Coming from an HEDT platform it's a bit of a disappointment.
I'm planning on getting a Radeon RX 5700XT next month, once custom cards are available, so I'll probably end up doing that, at least as far as it's feasible.

Cheers!
