Version 0.9 of the PCIe 6.0 specification is ready

Post a Comment

Development of the PCIe 6.0 specification, which began in June 2019, is close to completion. The PCI-SIG, an organization dedicated to the development and advancement of the PCIe standard, has announced the release of the specification version 0.9. In fact, this is the final version without significant changes, so companies can start implementing PCIe 6.0 in their projects.

Version 0.9 of the PCIe 6.0 specification is ready

PCIe 6.0 will be the first PCIe standard to use four-level pulse amplitude modulation (PAM-4), which is also used in other standards, in particular, in GDDR6 memory. It will allow you to work at speeds up to 64 Gb / s, transferring twice as much data per cycle as PCIe 5.0. Another key innovation is low latency Forward Error Correction (FEC) and additional mechanisms to improve bandwidth efficiency.

PCIe 6.0 is expected to be backward compatible with all previous PCIe versions. Previously, it was assumed that the final version will be released this year, but it is not clear whether it will be possible to meet the target date.
