can I use a PCI 4 target on a PCI 3 port?

[espanol] Tengo un Ryzen 7    1700. (primera generación)  Una Targeta Madre X370, con puertos PCI 3    x16. Pregunta: Puedo instalarle una tarjeta grafica PCI 4? Se limita el rendimiento o incompatible? En las tiendas de mi pais las tarjetas graficas son PCI 4, y básicamente no se consiguen PCI 3.

[english] I have a Ryzen 7 1700. (first generation)  An X370 motherboard, with PCI 3 x16 ports. Question: Can I install a PCI 4 graphics card for you? Is performance limited or incompatible? In stores in my country, graphics cards are PCI 4, and you basically don't get PCI 3.
