The PCI-SIG has announced its latest technology for computer peripherals, called PCI Express 7.0 or PCIe 7.0, which offers up to 512 gigabits per second data transfer rates.
In 2017, the American organization announced PCIe 5.0, which started appearing just a few months ago, and which worked effectively with AMD and Intel processors, and the sixth generation was announced for the first time a few years ago and will be available next year.
This organization has confirmed the discovery of new technologies in computer connectivity ports, including the seventh generation of PCIe, which can transfer data at speeds up to 512 gigabits.
After companies implement processors that are compatible with modern technology, the testing stage and provision of the necessary components, it is expected that they will reach users by 2027 at the latest.
The new generation of PCIe 7.0 will use PAM4 signals, which were introduced with version 6.0, to improve power efficiency and maintain lower latency while maintaining standard speed.
The report indicated that the near future will bring devices capable of providing an impressive data transfer speed, as each generation of PCIe almost doubles the speed of the previous generation. This means that PCIe 6.0 is twice as fast as PCIe 5.0, which will be available in new computers shortly, and Version 7.0 is four times as fast as version 5.0.
Through a single link, the seventh generation will transmit up to 32 gigabits per second, which is approximately 16 times the speed of the third generation PCIe connection, which is currently the most common device in use.
