PCIe 4.0 devices are being shown off at IDF 2016

 

PCIe 4.0 devices are being shown off at the Intel developer conference, IDF 2016, showcasing a demand for increased PCIe bandwidth for future products for both high-speed networking and storage solutions. 

PCIe 4.0 will offer 2x the bandwidth of existing PCIe 3.0, offering 16GT/s rather than 8GT/s. This effectively allows PCIe 4.0 devices to offer the same bandwidth as PCIe 3.0 with half of the PCIe lanes and offer double the PCIe bandwidth for PCIe 4.0 x16 devices like future GPUs and other PCIe solutions.  

Doubling this bandwidth will allow PCIe storage to get much faster and allow devices like GPUs to more easily communicate through the PCIe bus, potentially taking away the need for external bridge connections for Nvidia's SLI multi-GPU solution.

Right now we have seen no roadmaps from Intel which show when PCIe 4.0 will be added to consumer or enterprise motherboards, but it will essentially allow Intel products to get a lot more bandwidth out of their PCIe lanes. This will allow future servers to use increasingly high bandwidth networking and storage solutions. Below is an image of Mellanox 100Gb network card, which uses PCIe 4.0 x16.

The  PCI-SIG, Peripheral Component Interconnect Special Interest Group, is already looking at their PCIe 5.0 standard, which will offer double the bandwidth of PCIe 4.0, or 4x the PCIe bandwidth as PCIe 3.0.

Well, it is needed. The new Pascal cards run out of bandwidth from what I read. That is; if you don't run them on PCIe 3.0 x16.Quote

Not true !!!!

Rocking 4 way Pascal Titan Xs here and the bandwidth is fine.Quote

Just another reason for Intel to change sockets.Quote
