    Announcing the PCIe® 7.0 Specification: Doubling the Data Rate to 128 GT/s for the Next Generation of Computing

    ..At the PCI-SIG Developers Conference 2022, we celebrated our 30-year anniversary with the announcement of the next evolution of PCIe technology: PCIe 7.0 specification. The forthcoming PCIe 7.0 specification is planned to once again deliver a speed increase in three years, expanding the data rate of the recently released PCIe 6.0 specification to 128 GT/s. The PCIe 7.0 specification is targeted for release to members in 2025.

    PCI-SIG technical workgroups will be developing the PCIe 7.0 specification with the following feature goals:

    Delivering 128 GT/s raw bit rate and up to 512 GB/s bi-directionally via x16 configuration
    Utilizing PAM4 (Pulse Amplitude Modulation with 4 levels) signaling
    Focusing on the channel parameters and reach
    Continuing to deliver the low-latency and high-reliability targets
    Improving power efficiency
    Maintaining backwards compatibility with all previous generations of PCIe technology..

      great I just can’t wait for 2033.


      Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

      Having no recollection of what the subject of this conversation is about, and the short-short participants’ comments so far not helping me to know what it is, I’ve looked around and found that these “PCe” things are cards that plug on special slots on the motherboard of a computer and where on them, in turn, one can plug the connectors to peripheral devices. These PCe things make possible the fast transfer of data from the computer bits and pieces on the motherboard where the data take form, to the so-connected peripherals — for whatever purpose these peripherals are supposed to get such data and get it fast.



      PCIe (peripheral component interconnect express) is an interface standard for connecting high-speed components. Every desktop PC motherboard … has a number of PCIe slots you can use to add GPUs (opens in new tab) (aka video cards aka graphics cards), RAID cards (opens in new tab), Wi-Fi cards or SSD (opens in new tab) (solid-state drive) add-on cards. The types of PCIe slots available in your PC will depend on the motherboard you buy (opens in new tab).

      @OscarCP : You have never used a desktop PC ?
