PCI-SIG, the organization responsible for the widely adopted PCI Express (PCIe ) standard, today announced the official release of the PCIe 6.0 specification, reaching 64 GT/s. PCI Express technology has served as the de facto interconnect of choice for nearly two decades. The PCIe 6.0 specification doubles the bandwidth and power efficiency of the PCIe 5.0 specification (32 GT/s), while providing low latency and reduced bandwidth overhead.

Unless you are benching, NEED an upgrade or are crazy, you aren't missing out on anything. I promise. 

 

Hah, yeah I know. In real world situations I would likely never see the difference. Same applies for PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 to be honest.

I want it more for the chipset lanes. Some more USB 4.0. And maybe by then 10Gbe will be standard on new boards. Maybe some 40Gbe so we can get some use out of Cat8. A lot ISP's are now offering 2G and 5G fiber. We just need the hardware to be more standard. Then maybe the prices will drop.🙂

I just rewired everything in my home-office with Cat7 and Cat8 (don't use wifi) and our building offers up to 10 Gb/s up-and-down, but I find that apart from my mobos only supporting 2.5Gb/s (which could be dealt with via a descrete card), the real problem is reasonably affordable and available 10 Gb/s routers. Hopefully those prices will come down and availability goes up.

 

Re. PCIe 6,  while PCIe 5 NVMes are just coming out into the consumer space now, PCIe 6 drives should be fun, especially with 8 and 12 channel DDR5 RAM for HEDT & up.
