Forget PCIe 4.0, PCIe 5.0 is coming!

Read more about PCI-SIG's PCIe 5.0 standard.

It'll take even longer to come into development most likely as well. As the increase there frequencies the tracing from CPU to GPU becomes even shorter. It'll probably take a redesign of standard motherboard sizes if they want to get it closer.

Or way around that is just to keep the PCI4.0 trace length and just add more traces to effectively add more bandwidth, but that'll cost motherboard makers more money as they get more complex.

Controllers for earlier drafts of the spec already exist, its development was fairly uncoupled from 4.0's heavily delayed schedule, it could be a relatively quick rollout to enterprise, the gap between 3.0->4.0 being ratified was 7 years, 4.0->5.0 being ratified has only been two years, and the gap between hardware being available was technically even shorter.
