Windows 7: PCI Express 3.0 standard released

PCI Express 3.0 standard released

Quote:
The brains behind PCI Express announced today the release of the PCI Express 3.0 standard.


The PCI Special Interest group who are responsible for the PCI family have promised the new release will make future hardware “fly."
PCIe 3.0 was meant to have been released in 2009 which, when the time came, was delayed until 2010. Come time for the rescheduled release, it was delayed yet again as a result of wanting to ensure it was compatible with both PCIe 1.0a and 2.0.

The upgrade equates to 1GB/s of bandwidth per lane which means 16GB/s for the high performance graphic cards which usually use a x16 slot. PCIe 2.0 is capable of 5 billion transfers per second whereas, because of the upgraded bus-based clock and an update from 8/10-bit to 128/130-bits (of data sent each second), it means 3.0 is capable of 8 billion transfers p/s

Should show up in products in a year or two, about the time for my next upgrade.

Yes, 1-2 years for early adopter products. 3-5 before it's more mainstream.

The good thing is, it is compatible with 1.0 and 2.0 standard. Maybe the chip set vendors will implement it first and then the card vendors will catch up.

Have already order a PC card for the new USB. Hope to get a HDD shortly. Will be interesting to see how good it really is.

I thought GPU's have only just starting bottlenecking PCI-E 1.0?

Though I understand the main purpose isn't just for GPU's.
