PCIe 7.0 is released in 2025, has eight times the bandwidth of PCIe 4.0

Even though PCIe 4.0 SSDs and other devices have only been on the market for a few years, before you know it, we may be inserting PCIe 7.0 components into our gaming PCs. And if you think NVMe drives are pretty fast now, the new PCI Express spec should allow read and write speeds to reach new heights, thanks to eight times the bandwidth of the current spec.

PCI-SIG, the organization responsible for developing the PCI Express specifications, announced the release date for PCIe 7.0 during its 2022 developer conference. Due in 2025, the new standard promises to deliver speeds of 512 GB/s ( that’s gigabytes) through sixteen lanes.

While this sounds impressive on its own, you’ll be able to match the full bandwidth of PCIe 4.0 with just two lanes and PCIe 5.0 with four. This will only immediately benefit servers and supercomputers, but it will eventually inform the designs of the best graphics cards and SSDs for gaming.

For now, we have PCIe 5.0 GPUs and storage units to look forward to, and AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs will be the first processors to support the spec when they arrive later this year.
