The standards body responsible for the PCI Express bus is cruising right along towards PCI Express 6.0, the next-generation standard that is still on track for a finalized specification in 2021. As part of that journey, PCI-SIG announced the release of version 0.5 of PCIe 6.0. The latest draft specification incorporates "significant member feedback" PCI-SIG received after version 3.0 landed, though one thing is unchanged—a doubling of bandwidth over PCIe 5.0. Each new generation of the PCIe specification brings a doubling of bandwidth over the previous version. These days, PCI-SIG shoots for a two-year update schedule. However, it takes a bit longer for updated specifications to find their... Read more...
So, there's good news for those hoping to make their existing machine last a little bit longer. And there's bad news for those always looking for the next big leap in computing technology. The PCI SIG, the working group responsible for the forward movement of the PCI bus, has just confirmed that the release of PCIe 3.0 will be delayed by a significant amount. The standard was originally expected to be ratified by the end of this year, yet now the specification isn't apt to be passed off until Q2 2010. You might say that Q2 2010 doesn't feel that far away, and in our eyes, you'd be right. But remember, that's the date that the specification will be passed off; it'll be some time yet before actual... Read more...
