https://techgage.com/news/pcie-6-0-specification-slated-for-release-in-2021/
 
With 64 Gbps bandwidth per lane, 256 Gbps in x4, and a whopping 1 Tbps in x16 (128 GB/s per direction), PCI-Express 6.0 will debut in 2021 as 5G adoption hits critical mass in markets across the globe, to support server nodes, high-bandwidth network infrastructure, and lighting fast I/O for HPC and AI applications. Development of the new standard is already underway, with the specification having achieved a pre-release version 0.3, according to the PCI-SIG, the body that develops and maintains the PCI IP.

Further development, prototyping, and testing of the standard will run through 2020 as drafts of the standard are dispatched to interested parties. With the specification published in 2021, the first devices implementing it could arrive the following year. Granted, very few devices need 1 Tbps bandwidth, but the exercise of doubling bandwidth every 3 or so years has its maximum impact on devices that only have wiring for one PCIe lane, and directly impacts bandwidth of other I/O specifications that are derived from PCIe, such as USB, Thunderbolt, CXL, etc.
 
I personally believe such an adoption will benefit Enterprise environments which serve 5G networks first. 

Specs: AMD 2920X Threadripper, Corsair MP510 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASRock X399 Taichi, Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2080ti Black

Associate Code: H5U80QBH6BH0AXF

    So I guess PCIe 5.0 to the HEDT and mainstream markets will be more than enough for quite some time.

    Specifications - Need to be established well before hardware design starts
     
    who saturates PCIe 3.0 bandwidth already ?
     
    PCIe 4.0 & 5.0 will rule - till 2022 - 2023

    I have impression people hurry up on PCI-E 4.0 only because AMD finally have good processors.
    Many enthusiasts build AMD PC just because they don't make crap any more and didn't wait to see wider picture.
    Off course if Intel continue to follow AMD without real improvement, but guys who had some chipset and processor with DDR4 support didn't had real reason for upgrade. Example X299 will be more then enough even with some delay of DDR5 and PCI-E 5.0. Special X299 with Cascade Lake-X. 
     
    Actually in one moment situation looked bad, in next Intel back in game with lower price for very powerfull processors.

    The switch to PAM was originally scheduled to be on PCIe 5.0, or at least it was stated in the tech news articles and posted on the PCI Express wiki.  Looks like I will be waiting for PCIe 6.0 when I was originally going to wait for 5.0 when it would make the switch to PAM and I knew 6.0 was to be released in this time frame.

    The human brain is far more powerful and capable than any computer, but is the most susceptible to damage from toxicity than any other part of the human body due to lack of nociceptors; through optimized nutrition and training the possibilities achievable are outstanding.

    Is there even an Nvidia GeForce consumer graphics card that supports Peripheral Component Interconnect 4.0 (PCIe) yet? AMD Navi supports PCIe 4.0 version. I would not swap brands. Nvidia and EVGA are reliable for me. I am waiting until Nvidia creates a specification and all the graphics card brands/manufacturers make one that supports PCIe 4.0 version. I give it next year when they release Nvidia's next generation of graphics cards. Again all you need is additional graphics processing power for games and applications. I give it several years before we see PCIe 5.0 and 6.0 versions. Interesting however I would rather have the brands play catch up to PCIe 4.0 and for me to buy AMD motherboard that supports it. Maybe even wait until next year with AMD Ryzen 4th generation. rjohnson11 posted about speculating on AMD Ryzen 4th generation. The future is bright for computers!

    The spec for 6.0 will be finalized in 2021 it will be another 18 months before we see consumer devices. Enterprise is always first.

    Well, it should mean that by the time consumers get PCIe 6.0 the tech should be well polished I hope.
    Wonder when PCIe will be replaced by something else from PCI, to AGP to PCIe we're due for a new acronym soon right :P

    I don't know about video cards yet, but Gigabyte has a PCIe 4.0 AIC SSD that runs at 4x .
    8TB, my, my .
    They've got an X299"X" board to run it, too .

    meh.. not worried...  we are all fine with 4.0 version
    5.0 is very close on the horizon for next year perhaps?..... but no hardware yet.
    as for 6.0 version... well...  in 2025 seems ok.. but that's too far away..

    Re. GTXJackBauer
    Thanks, got it . 
    It strikes me that if Gigabyte is going the right way with this, it could eventually make M2, and SATA
    connectors obsolete .  This, and integrated graphics could make a small, compact
    desk top computer with lots of fast storage .  Kind of a high performance

    @cotter32 Yeah I am most interested in EVGA Nvidia GeForce PCIe 4.0 (Peripheral Component Interconnect) graphics card. My current card is a EVGA GeForce GTX 670 is a 3.0 card in a 2.0 slot. I am interested in seeing the performance the latest GTX 1660 Super. Maybe I will upgrade and put it in my 2.0 slot? However, I am really looking forward to Nvidia 4.0 graphics card in my next computer build.

    Bandwidth is only part of it. You would also need fast rapid data transfers of small amounts of information while this might be better at large transfers of information at a slower rate. NVIDIA link would allow them total control over what they want.

    Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.
