What to expect: PCI-SIG specialists (PCI-SIG) released a draft specification 0.9 for PCIe 6.0 this week, which will be the last draft before the full 1.0 release. Although this is a huge step forward, it still takes a long time for PCIe 6.0 to truly reach consumers.
PCI-SIG announced on its website that it has reached the final stage of publishing full specifications for manufacturers to begin building PCIe 6.0 support hardware. Spec 0.7 was released last November. Al Jans, president of PCI-SIG, told The Register that the latest version 1.0 is currently scheduled for the end of this year or early 2022. The cards, SSDs and other motherboard components. Each version of PCIe has more bandwidth to connect faster than the previous version. PCIe 6.0 doubles the bandwidth of PCIe 5.0 and promises a maximum transfer rate of 64 GB/s and a maximum transfer rate of 256 GB/s despite the x16 configuration. It will also include FLIT-based encoding and low-delay forward error correction (FEC). FEC will have more mechanisms to improve bandwidth performance. PCIe 6.0 backwards compatible.

Even when the PCI-SIG version is fully featured, we still have a long way to go. By seeing it in consumer devices. Gans told The Register. p>
The latest processors and graphics cards from companies like AMD, Intel and Nvidia are just starting to use PCIe 4.0, and the same goes for the latest SSDs. The PCIe 5.0 specification was released in 2019, but hardware makers are still preparing. To upgrade all their products to this generation. p>
The final draft of PCIe 6.0 has been released, with the full version just a few months away
