PCIe 6.0 is here with double the bandwidth at 128Gbps

12 January 2022
The new faster standard will be available for network cards, servers, and SSDs in 2023.

Great now they will launch another shitty GRAPHICS card with PCI 6.0 with a lousy 4x to force people to upgrade from 3.0 and 4.0 boards... LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME!

Where I've said Bandwidth?
Use Google Translate if you have not enough english to understand.
Even you have no idea about Bandwidth.

Random writes/reads speeds and peak latency are the most important for most consumers (They determine how consistently "snappy" the drive is), with sustained sequential speeds being important for those who constantly move TB's of data around, and power consumption also being important to laptop users.

Every modern CPU is already slowed down if the data it needs is in RAM instead of already having been pre-fetched to it's internal caches, and SSDs are absurdly slow when compared to RAM. (≈1-15ns latency for caches, ≈100ns for RAM, ≈5000-150000ns for NVMe drives)

Nothing will replace RAM in the next two decades. At most it can be supplemented by more CPU cache.

wow I can't wait to experience pcie 6 in 2030!

Other then the increased SSD speed , there are 0 benefits at the moment for using a PCE-E 4.0 16x ... nothing can saturate it on the consumer side.

It is nearly about RAM Bus speeds, may be soon SSD's will be used as real RAM, not virtual ram or extended ram but real RAM

It was released back in 2017 but new standards aren't adopted right away, PCIe 5.0 was released back in 2019 but now we got the first consumer hardware with PCIe 5.0, 6.0 just got released but it will take a few years to be released in the consumer market!

Everyone must work on photonics I/O which can offer upto 10,000GB/s , not this puny speeds

i have a laptop which has pcie 2.0 x4 lane. maybe next year i would buy pcie 3.0 or 4.0

Ohh man... I was planning to change my PC motherboard and now this?! 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️
Was really hype to get new motherboard with PCIe 5 on board 😤😤😤

sadh, 13 Jan 2022Wtf, i bought a newest laptop and came with best PCIe and i... moreThat's mostly because consumer pc products cannot even saturate the pcie 4.0 lanes. Most uses pcie 5 and 6 atm is for cloud/server where they huge amounts of data passed very quickly.

Looks good... until you need a good graphics cards to get the best of it :(
