New Animated Video – PCIe® 6.0 Specification: Evolving Performance for Data Centric Applications

  • Posted on: 11 January 2022

For nearly three decades, PCI Express® (PCIe®) technology has served as the de facto high bandwidth, low latency interconnect. As the industry evolves to meet the needs of data-intensive applications, the PCIe specification has kept pace, enabling future innovation.

The PCIe 6.0 specification is the next generation in the evolution of PCIe technology – doubling the data rate to 64 GT/s (256 GB/s via x16 configuration) and adding innovative new features, while maintaining backwards compatibility with all previous generations of PCIe technology.
