PCI-SIG publishing a listing for a new Motherboard with PCIe3 ? ? ? PCI-SIG is about advancing PCIe. They are about PCIe 4 and PCIe 5. This looks like disinformation to me.

The PCI 4.0 standard was officially published in late October. Do you seriously think AMD would be able to create a CPU and motherboard platform that supports it within such a short space of time?

Yes, PCI-SIG wants to advance PCIe, but that does not mean that they won't certify new platforms that use existing standards. PCI-SIG does not abandon their existing standards as soon as they are replaced.

It is unlikely that we will see products based on PCIe 4.0 anytime soon, at least until 2019.
