PCI-SIG (Peripheral Component Interconnect Special Interest Group), the standards body responsible for overseeing the development of the PCI Express specification, announced that PCIe 7.0 is on track to bring another huge jump in bandwidth by 2025. As such, we could see solid state drives (SSDs) scale to around 64GB/s... Read more...
If you're familiar with M.2 SSDs, then you know that the standard sizes are named "M.2-2280", "M.2-2230", and so on. The last half of the number refers to the length of a drive's PCB, so an "M.2-2280" SSD is 80 millimeters long. M.2 SSDs officially can be up to 110mm in length, or as short as 30mm. The first half... Read more...
If you're a hardware enthusiast, you might remember that back when NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3000-series cards launched, its Founders Edition cards came with a funky little power connector and an adaptor in the box. We've since learned that connector is (or at least based on) the peripheral power connector from the PCIe... Read more...
When it comes to the march of technology, the advancements never stop coming. Hence why even though the first consumer platforms supporting PCI Express 5.0 only recently launched, there's already talk of the next iteration, PCI Express 6.0. More than just talk, actually. PCI-SIG, the consortium responsible for... Read more...
We are just now seeing the fruits of PCI-SIG's labors with the PCI-Express 4.0 standard courtesy of AMD's Ryzen 3000/X570 platform, along with a handful of compatible peripherals (Radeon RX 5700 Navi, SSDs). Following that up, PCI-SIG earlier this year completed work on the next generation PCIe 5.0 specification... Read more...
The PCI standards group PCI-SIG (Special Interest Group) comprised of AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, and other technology bigwigs announced it has finalized the specifications for the PCI Express 4.0 standard. It has previously announced in June at the group's DevCon event that the spec was feature complete and undergoing... Read more...
PCI-SIG, the consortium that is in charge of developing and maintaining the PCI Express standard, announced a couple of developments this week. One is the official launch of the PCIe 4.0 specification that will take the baton from PCIe 3.0, and the other is early work on the standards eventual replacement, PCIe... Read more...
PCI-SIG, the organization in charge of maintaining and developing PCI-Express, has announced that the third version of the PCIe standard is finished and ready for implementation. The new standard is fully compatible with earlier PCIe cards; a Gen 1 or Gen 2 card will run perfectly in a PCIe 3.0 slot. Just as PCIe Gen 2 offered double the performance... Read more...
